QQI Health & Safety Representative Course

The QQI Health & Safety Representative Course 5N1451 (commonly known as Safety Reps) is a 4-day training course. Aimed 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 Representative 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 Learners should be aware that the old 3 day course is no longer valid.
