In order to support mangers in carrying out their roles and responsibilities when managing health and safety in the workplace, the National Health and Safety Function has developed and launched an e-learning programme which is available on HSeLanD titled ‘Managing health and safety in the healthcare setting’. Each topic in the programme addresses a key aspect of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the steps involved in successfully managing occupational safety and health and welfare in the HSE. This programme is informative, interactive and includes insightful interviews with managers within the HSE who share their experience of managing health and safety when implementing a Safety Management Programme in their place of work. The programme also provides a useful overview of the information and guidance available through the National Health and Safety Function and its website.
The e-Learning programme is available through www.hseland.ie
