In order to work in some areas of industry employees must have specific qualifications. Western Management Centre offers a range of key health and safety courses that are mandatory for anyone wanting to work in a factory, nursing home, building site, warehouse, or as a special needs assistant (SNA ).
The SOLAS Safe Pass course is mandatory for many jobs involving maintenance, building, painting, landscaping, etc. Manual handling is also a requirement. If you are looking for a job in a nursing home or as an SNA then the People Moving and Handling course is essential. Occupational First Aid, which includes CPR and defibrillator, is also relevant and gives potential employees a key skill for their CV. All the courses comply with the Health & Safety Authority (HSA ).
Gaining a fork truck certification opens many avenues as any business that has a warehouse or stores uses a fork truck to manage the products and stock. All fork truck drivers must have a current fork truck licence. Again, manual handling gives an extra advantage when seeking employment.
The ADR driver course (Hazchem ) is mandatory for anyone who wants to drive trucks or tankers that carry hazardous goods. A hazardous good can be as basic as paint all the way up to chemicals and petrol.
