NWRC new Safe and Alert Accreditation for Hospitality Businesses

North West Regional College (NWRC) Business Support Centre (BSC) has developed a new Health and Safety Working Practices course for hospitality businesses.  It is relevant to restaurants, cafes, takeaways, food vans and restaurants within hotels. All participants will gain an appreciation and understanding of relevant legislation and guidance from the government and other relevant agencies such as the Health and Safety Executive and its application to their business. 

Businesses will be required to complete a risk assessment and map out additional equipment and PPE required for employee and public safety within their premises and assess the viability of these working practices.  Each business will also appoint a dedicated Champion who will be the point of contact for their business to disseminate updates/information/best practice to be made and implemented.

On successful completion of the course, participants will be awarded a Level 2 Health and Safety Working Practices qualification.  

The course runs for two days: 

Day 1 of the course covers the basic of Health and Safety guidelines and the learning outcomes to complete the QualSafe L2  accreditation.

Day 2 Focuses on the risk assessments plans to enable businesses to following the changing guidelines of the government in regards to COVID-19.

This robust programmme gives employers confidence in providing a safe place for customers and staff. 

Individual employees who complete the course become a Safe & Alert Champion and receive a certificate at L2 . The Safe & Alert brand (window sticker) has been building customer confidence. 

This course is 100% funded by the Department of the Economy. The next course begins on 20th July but there will be other dates to follow.
