Basic Health and Safety Training
Basic Health and Safety Training is the starting point for intending Health and Safety professionals.
It is a recurrent question.
I want to start a career in Health and Safety, where should I start from?
Which Health and Safety Course should I enroll for?
This article aims to solve two (2) important issues:
- For intending professionals: It will present a guide on where to start from.
- For young professionals: It will present an head-way to avoid moving in circle. Most young professionals enroll for lots of Health and Safety courses without knowing that they are actually moving in circle, i.e, the courses do not take them even a step forward.
The Health, Safety and Environment professional courses are rated from Level 1 – 7, so if you are not guided, you may settle for all level 3 courses. Though they will help boost your knowledge base, they are not taking you higher. You need to enroll for higher Health and Safety certification to move higher in the Health and Safety professional ladder.
