Health and Safety Level 2

Health and Safety Level 2

ETD’s Health and Safety Level 2 Course will help you to stay safe and prevent accidents in the workplace.

In 2018, 144 employees lost their lives while working in the UK. Another 73,000 reported injuries, causing businesses to lose 4.5 million working days. But many of these deaths – and thousands of these injuries – could have been prevented if staff had undertaken the right training.
