OVERVIEW BRITISH SAFETY COUNCIL LEVEL 3 CERTIFICATE IN OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
In 2011/2012, in UK workplaces, 173 workers were killed and over 27,000 were seriously injured. Some 1.3 million people suffered from an illness they believed was caused or made worse by their current or past work and 28.5 million working days were lost as a result of occupational injury and ill-health.
In addition to the tragic loss of life and personal suffering, employers found themselves faced with court fines and costs, increased insurance premiums, compensation claims, reduced productivity, damaged reputation and lower staff morale.
The vast majority of occupational accidents and incidents of ill-health can be avoided by good health and safety management. With this in mind, the British Safety Council offers the Level 3 Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, a nationally-recognised qualification for people with responsibility for aspects of health and safety in the workplace.
The content of the Level 3 Certificate has been mapped to the National Occupational Standards for Health and Safety and reflects the management model in HSG65 ‘Successful Health and Safety Management’, the Health and Safety Executive’s guide on how organisations should manage health and safety.
