QQI Health & Safety Representation Course

The aim of the FETAC Health & Safety Representation 5N1451 (commonly known as Safety Reps) training course is to promote and maintain safety and health in the workplace. The safety representative course outlines the roles and functions of a Health and Safety Representative.

Please note that QQI have changed the structure and duration (now 4 days) of the Health & Safety Representation Course to meet the volume of learning associated with the award and increased classroom time to bridge the gap between this and the level of self-directed learning (project work etc.) involved. Learners should be aware that the old 3 day course is no longer valid.
