This FHT Approved Essential Health & Safety Diploma covers not only Health & Safety but also Fire and Evacuation, Image and Hygiene, Professionalism and Community Involvement, Protection from Abuse, Services and Operations, and Security, making it ideal for continuing professional development. If you have not studied Health and Safety within the last 2 years this is a must-have to protect yourself and your clients. No attendance required.

This module is all about how, by gaining understanding of what stress and pressure are and what factors affect them, you can have an influence on the wellbeing of your team. Prevention is always better than a cure, so if you understand how the body works you can begin to take active steps to promote positive wellbeing and minimise the effects of stress.
The module educates managers on how to manage pressure in themselves and others and details the legalities and implications of stress at work. It looks at what factors affect wellbeing and cause stress, and how to identify stress signs and how they can be prevented.

This FHT Approved Pathology CPD course covers 72 conditions and is a great way to refresh or enhance your knowledge about this important subject. No attendance required.
