Free course on occupational health and safety rules

14 June 2016

FGC is offering members the opportunity to take part in a free course on the new occupational health and safety rules which came into effect in April.

The course is being run in partnership with Competenz, the sector’s industry training organisation. It's designed for managers, team leaders and employees with responsibilities for health and safety. 

As well as gaining extra skills and knowledge needed to work safely, and tools to help manage the legal changes, staff will gain a nationally recognised qualification (the National Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety Level 3). 

Places are limited to 12 people per course on a first-in first-served basis. The course is flexible in terms of days and locations if a company wishes to hold a full course on-site. The offer is open only to FGC members. For more information and to register, go to the Competenz web page.

FGC CEO Katherine Rich says FGC strongly encourages members to take up this opportunity to ensure they have the latest health and safety knowledge. “The package put together by Competenz to assist members is impressive and well worth the effort to be involved.”
