TQUK Falls Prevention Awareness Level 2 - Online Study

Online/Distance Learning

About the course

Our courses enable you to boost your career with a nationally recognised qualification even if you don’t have the time to attend training sessions. You will work your way through the qualification submitting work every 2 weeks, achieving within approximately three months.

This qualification will help you to develop effective team working practices alongside principles and techniques that support workplace organisations.

You will learn how continuous improvement techniques such as Kaizen can be applied for a boost in productivity, effectiveness, safety and waste reduction, and how businesses use it to gain that all-important competitive edge.

The course is split into four manageable units:

  • Impacts, consequences and costs of falls
  • Causes of falls
  • Preventing falls
  • Best practice and legislation relating to falls

This course is studied purely online and is ideal for those who are happy to work independently using our fully supported online learning platform.
