Health and Safety


Health and Safety appears in the syllabus of most college courses nowadays.


This includes IT Technician courses.


IT Technicians in the workplace are expected to know and uphold all Health and Safety regulations, particularly when considering the safety of other people.


All employees are responsible for their own personal health and safety as well as that of everyone else working around them. This includes visitors and clients.


You should be aware of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 - this applies to you!
