Safety Training

Preventing accidents and ill health caused by work is a key priority for everyone at work. Effective training is vital for assisting with this. As the owner or manager of a business you know that competent employees are valuable. 

Benefits of effective health and safety training:

  • ensures your employees are not injured or made ill by the work they do
  • develops a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to everyone
  • helps you to manage health and safety better
  • meet your legal duty to protect the health and safety of your employees
  • contributes towards making your employees competent in health and safety
  • can help your business avoid the distress that accidents and ill health cause
  • can help you avoid the financial costs of accidents and occupational ill health 

Remember! Your insurance doesn’t cover all these costs. Damaged products, lost production and demotivated staff can all result.

The law requires that you provide whatever information, instruction and training is needed to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of your employees.
