DIPLOMA IN SECURITY AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT
Organizational commitment and careful preparation are needed to provide a safe work environment. Implementing policies is necessary, and assessments are required to ascertain the level of risk and the best security plan. Guidelines for personal safety and security are required to provide a framework for individual action and response, to increase confidence and awareness, and to help prevent incidents or minimize their effects when they do occur. Basic safety and security preparations and procedures must be put in place.
Although safety and health principles are universal, the amount of action required will vary depending on the organization’s size, the risks presented by its operations, the physical characteristics of the organization, its products, or its services, and the effectiveness of its current arrangements.
This diploma programme will give you the knowledge and abilities you need to comprehend and effectively oversee security and safety management.
