Health and Safety Training

Health and Safety Training – Levels 1 to 4 – we do them all!

Every year the health and safety regulations become more complex. It is essential that you keep up to date and comply with the latest legislation. The costs of accidents and ill health in the workplace can have a significant effect on your business. The effective management of health and safety in your business is the key to eliminating or reducing workplace hazards. Having a well managed health and safety system in place and effective health and safety training will ensure staff, visitors and contractors are protected at all times.

You are ultimately responsible for the health and safety in all aspects of the business. You have a “duty of care” to look after the health, safety and welfare of your employees while they are at work. You must ensure that your business has access to suitable competent health and safety advice. Failure to comply with the health and safety regulations can carry heavy penalties in the way of fines, poor staff morale, loss of business, a bad reputation and possibly even imprisonment.

Health and Safety Training

Everyone you employ needs to know how to work safely and without risks to health. You must provide clear instructions and  information, and adequate health and safety training, for your employees.

Consider how much training is necessary. A proportionate approach is needed, for example a low-risk business would not need lengthy technical training. Providing simple information or instructions is likely to be sufficient.

Don’t forget contractors and self-employed people who may be working for you and make sure everyone has the right level of information on:

  • hazards and risks they may face, if any ;
  • measures in place to deal with those hazards and risks, if necessary;
  • how to follow any emergency procedures.

When you provide health and safety training, ask your employees what they think about it to make sure it’s relevant and effective. Keeping health and safety training records will help you to identify when refresher training might be needed.

The information and training you provide should be in a form that is easy to understand. Everyone working for you should know what they are expected to do.
