Leisure Centre Health & Safety eLearning

Our Health & Safety for Leisure Centres course is perfect for health, safety and risk management requirements of Sports & Leisure Centre operational staff and others, such as a; Duty Manager, Recreation Assistant, Receptionist/Administrator and Life Guards etc. who are responsible for not only their own safety and that of their colleagues, but also people other than those at work (e.g. volunteer staff like coaches, club members, visiting teams and spectators).

This course will benefit anyone who works within a Sports or Leisure Centre environment, enabling them to recognise fundamental risk factors such as chemicals or other substances that may cause harm within the sports and leisure environment, and other elements such as manual handling risk factors including an understanding of the anatomy of the spine and causes of back injuries, and practical advice on safe lifting techniques. This course focuses specifically on the common hazards to be found in the sports and leisure centre industry including Workstation Safety (DSE), Manual Handling and Fire Safety, but also the very real issues of Conflict Resolution, Lone Working, Working at Height, Accidents, Slips, Trips and Falls and Work-life Balance and Stress, to name but a few.

Health and safety laws should not be a barrier to organising and running amateur sports activities that are an important part of community life, but a framework under which to keep those engaging in activities healthy and well. Within the Sports and Leisure industry it's so important that workers are provided with a detailed awareness of the hazards that face them day-to-day, which can be difficult to do sometimes, as many people may not even recognise the on-the-job tasks and activity hazards they manage day-to-day such as swimming or organised sporting activities. This course provides the foundation to sensible and proportionate risk control measures, where the safety of members of the public, particularly the safety of children and young people are key factors.
