Safety Competence - self-paced (HSSCOMPETENCE) 
Course Description:

The Safety competence course is one of six courses in the Safety Risk Management programme.

The course aims to help managers create, develop, and maintain a competent team to support the management of risks.

The course provides managers with guidance, tools, and advice to help them identify the training requirements for team members, implement a plan for training needs and/or gaps, and monitor progress to maintain competency.

The course has three sections:
  1. A brief introduction to the course leading to three core learning sections and related topics about new staff safety induction, approaches to learning and training and, team development.
  2. Resource banks containing the relevant tool(s), guidance, information, and advice to help gather information and/or carry out tasks that would assist in the process of identifying training requirements of team members, implement a plan to meet the identified training needs and/or gaps, and monitor progress to maintain competency.
  3. A ten-question multiple-choice quiz at the end of the course. You must achieve a score of 80% or more to pass and complete the course.
You can complete the course at your own pace, picking up where you have left off, however, please remember to save the course before you exit.
