Leisure Centre Health & Safety
Health and safety laws should not be a barrier to organising and running amateur sports activities that are an important part of community life, but a framework under which to keep those engaging in activities healthy and well. Within the Sports and Leisure industry it's so important that workers are provided with a detailed awareness of the hazards that face them day-to-day, which can be difficult to do sometimes, as many people may not even recognise the on-the-job tasks and activity hazards they manage day-to-day such as swimming or organised sporting activities. This course provides the foundation to sensible and proportionate risk control measures, where the safety of members of the public, particularly the safety of children and young people are key factors.
