Helping learners and apprentices understand health and safety risks

LOcHER is a new approach for Learners and Apprentices to help them identify and understand the health and safety risks in their area of study. It allows young people and new workers to learn about the risks and showcase how they can protect their own, and fellow workers health, safety and wellbeing. This experience can then be taken into the world of work.

Participating employers, colleges and students manage and run these projects in a variety of ways including

  • viewing case studies on the SGUK web site to get ideas
  • simply getting started yourself with your students or workers
  • registering your college with the UK steering group where additional support may be available and participating students receive a certificate from Safety Groups UK.

Any member of the UK steering group will be able to provide further advice and put you in contact with others locally who have engaged in a LOcHER project.
