The assessment is taken during the course and is within the expected duration.
This course has been designed to provide an awareness of how, and why, a wide variety of hand related injuries can occur in the workplace. You will also learn how to treat specific injuries, along with practical advice on how to prevent them from occurring in the first place.
Employers should provide additional training when a new hazard/procedure/condition or piece of equipment is introduced into the workplace or “unscheduled” refresher training is recommended as directed to address inadequacies in knowledge and to address unsafe acts/deviations from procedures.
