Health and Safety for Interpreters and Translators


This course is designed for professional interpreters and translators.

As with all professions, health and safety is important from the point of view of being legally compliant and responsible, but it goes much further than that, particularly when you are working for yourself. If you are unable to work due to an accident or an injury, this can have a serious impact on your earning potential.

In this course you will learn about the risks that a linguist’s working environment can pose to your health and safety, including¬†the physical environment, health and safety procedures, legislative framework, risk assessment and accidents at work and how to avoid them.
