The Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace (QCF) is a qualification aimed at individuals who intend to develop their knowledge and understanding of health and safety in the workplace. It provides learners with formal recognition of their knowledge and understanding and as the qualification is generic, it is applicable to a range of work settings. As the qualification is knowledge-based, there is no requirement for the learner to be in work. By completing the single mandatory unit, all learners will cover the essentials of health and safety in the workplace, including roles and responsibilities, the contribution of risk assessments, identifying and controlling the risks from common workplace hazards and the procedures for responding to accidents and incidents. Objectives of the qualification include preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.
