The occupational health course from NEBOSH focuses on workplace health and will benefit companies in all sectors to improve the efficiency and morale of their workforce.
It will equip managers to minimise sickness absence, encourage people back to work where possible and deal effectively with the health and well-being issues of their staff.

Coleg Cambria Deputy Director, Lesley Rasmussen added: “With the growing issues of mental health in the workplace, this qualification provides organisations with appropriate knowledge and skills to support the wellbeing of the workforce positively.
