Course Details

  • If you’re an experienced health and safety representative and would like to develop your understanding of principles and practices in the workplace further, then this Level 2 Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety is the course for you.

    You’ll get the opportunity to question the development and function of health and safety law and discover how to build trade union organisation for health and safety. Using key sources of information on health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, you’ll build evidence to support solutions for some of the priority problems in the workplace and tackle those that workers currently face.

    A big part of the course will look at the principles of health and safety management and the role of unions, occupational services, and employers. You’ll also look at the current law on health and safety, ways in which it can be improved and how trade unions can influence the development of new laws.

  • If you’d like to enrol on this Level 2 Diploma, you’ll need to have completed both Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the TUC Health and Safety course.

  • You’ll be continuously assessed during this Level 2 Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, using a variety of assignments that will include a research project.

  • After completing this course, you’ll have an in-depth knowledge of health and safety and a qualification that can lead to higher education courses with us at The Manchester College or further Unionlearn programmes.

    With this diploma, you’ll be able to take on more advanced roles within your workplace, including various occupational health advisor and inspector roles and you could even move to a union-official, full-time paid position.
