The Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Health and Safety Practice is a recognised and fully-accredited qualification. This qualification is designed for learners who are responsible for health & safety in their workplace. Assessors will assess the delegates by distance learning workplace assessment throughout the process.

The course ensures that each candidate is able to plan, detail and implement health and safety policies for each level of the business, taking into account industry-specific legislation.

Each successful candidate will be able to adapt their qualification for the business in which they are working; whether that is hospitality, healthcare, logistics, construction or wholesale and retail.
