Safe Worker Goes Live

The new online interactive Safe Worker qualification from NOCN and Mylearnadfriend is live from September 1.

Over the past month the Safe Worker website has been accepting registrations of interest from colleges, training providers and employers who see the value in this cost effective online training solution – now it is going to be all systems go from September.

"We’ve been getting good feedback from our customers who say this qualification meets their needs and will save them money compared to their existing health and safety provision.”
