Health and safety qualifications monitoring

Friday 16 Jul 2021

Qualifications Wales has completed an exercise to monitor health and safety qualifications available through regulated awarding bodies in Wales.

The exercise forms part of our ongoing monitoring programme of vocational qualifications which is set out in our Vocational Qualifications strategy. We focussed on the following qualifications:

  • Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace
  • Level 2 Award in Principles of Manual Handling

These qualifications assess underpinning knowledge and understanding of health and safety and manual handling.

Our report can be read in full here.

This report was due to be published in 2020 but was delayed due to work in response to the COVID-19 situation taking priority.
