The objective of the H&S qualification is to support a role in the workplace and is intended for learners already working in the capacity of supervisor, manager, team leaders or those who are preparing to start work at this level and gives them the knowledge of health and safety.
The qualification provides learners with an understanding of:
- the requirements of health, safety and welfare;
- the benefits of a health and safety management system;
- the risks and control methods for common workplace hazards;
- the principles of risk assessment and incident investigation.
To register for this qualification, learners are required to be 16 years of age or above.
How long will it take?
The total qualification time (TQT) for this qualification is 30 hours and of this 21 hours is recommended as guided learning (GL).
These include legislation, the benefits of using a safety management system, the principles of risk assessments, hazards and risk control methods.
This qualification is assessed by a multiple-choice question examination. This method of assessment is an end-of-course exam and must follow the Highfield Qualifications Examination and Invigilation Procedures. The examination for this qualification contains 60 questions that must be completed within 120 minutes. Successful learners must achieve a score of at least 40 out of 60. Learners will achieve a Merit at 50 our of 60.
It is the responsibility of the centre to have systems in place to ensure that the person taking an assessment is indeed the person they are claiming to be. All centres are therefore required to ensure that each learner’s identification is checked before they undertake the assessment. Highfield Qualifications recommends the following as proof of a learner’s identity:
- a valid passport (any nationality)
- a signed UK photocard driving licence
- a valid warrant card issued by HM forces or the police
- another photographic ID card, e.g. employee ID card, student ID card, travel card etc.
If a learner is unable to produce any of the forms of photographic identification listed above, a centre may accept another form of identification containing a signature, for example, a credit card. Identification by a third-party representative, such as a line manager, human resources manager or invigilator, will also be accepted.
