FULL TITLE: WORKSHOP SAFETY
UNIT STANDARD: Not unit standard aligned
DESCRIPTION: Every workplace has its hazards, some more than others. Protecting yourself from those hazards is a threefold affair: Know the hazards of the job, do the right things to protect yourself and know how to react if an accident should occur. A major part of workshop safety is based upon commonsense and thinking ahead. It is an accepted fact that forethought and the elimination of carelessness can avoid virtually all shop accidents. These are the issues covered in this course.
DURATION: Full Training (Novice): 2 Days
Recertification Training/Evaluation: 1 Day
COURSE CONTENT: Safety legislation
