The Complete Substances and Hazard (Health & Safety) Diploma Course

Health and safety is a key issue across all industries. Good health and safety practices reduce the risk of accidents, illness and death.

A safe working environment also improves employee morale, reduces the number of days taken off sick, lowers staff turnover and enhances a business’ reputation as a desirable place to work.

This bundle addresses some of the most common health and safety concerns found in the workplace, including carbon monoxide and construction dust.

These courses will help you fulfil your obligations under health and safety law. You will learn about key Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines which should form the backbone of your health and safety policies.

Asbestos Awareness Course

Asbestos can be found in many UK buildings. Banned in 1999, asbestos is known to cause serious diseases including cancer. Therefore, it is a major health and safety hazard. It is important to note that this course does not qualify you as an asbestos specialist. However, it will equip you with all the working knowledge you need to uphold health and safety guidelines in the workplace.

This course provides you with an overview of the history and uses of asbestos. You will learn about the risks associated with the different types of asbestos, how you can protect yourself and others from its effects and the legislation that governs how people should work with this material.

Blood-borne Pathogens & Exposure Control Plan Certificate Course

Anyone who is exposed to blood during the course of their work needs to be aware of the dangers associated with blood-borne pathogens. Blood-borne pathogens can cause serious diseases, including hepatitis.

To mitigate this risk, you must implement a suitable Blood-borne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan.

This course will show you how to devise and write such a plan, taking into account the specific risks faced by employees at your place of work. It will address the information you must include, how to incorporate the plan into employee training programmes and how workers should respond in the event of an exposure incident.

Carbon Monoxide Awareness Certificate Course

Carbon monoxide is a tasteless, odourless gas that can kill within hours. Known as the “silent killer,” it is a serious health and safety concern.

This course will teach you how and why carbon monoxide is so harmful, why it should be addressed in every health and safety plan and how to mitigate its effects.

The course will help you undertake a risk assessment to gauge the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and install suitable warning systems. You will learn how to spot the early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning and how to liaise with third parties to prevent a recurrence.

The Dangers of Construction Dust Certification Course

Construction dust can result in serious health conditions, such as silicosis. It can also play a role in the development of lung cancer. Therefore, anyone who works with or encounters construction dust at work, needs to be aware of these risks and take suitable preventative measures.

In this course, you will learn about the types of construction dust people encounter in the workplace, the role of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) in reducing the risk of harm and why ongoing health surveillance can detect early warning signs of health problems.

Was really nice to be able to sit through an online course and fly through it.

This is because my learning styles are predominantly read/write and/or kinaesthetic so being in a classroom listening to teachers is often mind numbing and other students tend to hold me back. This course was great for allowing me to work through at my own pace.

It was also great value for money and although I didn't need to request for student support, all confirmation emails came through quickly and efficiently so I am overall pleased with the service.

Good job New Skills Academy, looking forward to learning with you more in the future.

Christian Roach

Very enjoyable and informative course which covered all aspects of dog grooming, managing the business side and history of dog grooming. What I liked most was being able to do the course at my own pace, revisiting modules as required to gain a complete understanding of what I was learning.

I found the video tutorials very helpful and was able to give my own dog a professional cut after watching them.

On the one occasion I forgot my password online help were very prompt in helping me . I would highly recommend this course. Good value for money.

Thank-you New Skills Academy!

I was a bit apprehensive about doing this course online but I needn't have worried. I was able to work through the modules at my own pace.

The course material was easy to understand and had some really useful and practical information and advice such as choosing a name for your business and the pitfalls of working from home.

I'm really, really glad I did this course as I am a home baker and it has provided lots of useful knowledge and tips to take my business forward.

The course has definitely given me the confidence to take my hobby to the next level.

Thank you

Was really nice to be able to sit through an online course and fly through it.

This is because my learning styles are predominantly read/write and/or kinaesthetic so being in a classroom listening to teachers is often mind numbing and other students tend to hold me back. This course was great for allowing me to work through at my own pace.

It was also great value for money and although I didn't need to request for student support, all confirmation emails came through quickly and efficiently so I am overall pleased with the service.

Good job New Skills Academy, looking forward to learning with you more in the future.

Very enjoyable and informative course which covered all aspects of dog grooming, managing the business side and history of dog grooming. What I liked most was being able to do the course at my own pace, revisiting modules as required to gain a complete understanding of what I was learning.

I found the video tutorials very helpful and was able to give my own dog a professional cut after watching them.

On the one occasion I forgot my password online help were very prompt in helping me . I would highly recommend this course. Good value for money.

Thank-you New Skills Academy!
