Sadly, in some organisations, health and safety only becomes important after something goes wrong, and it really doesn’t have to be like that. A lot of people are still confused about health and safety; it’s about preventing people from being harmed by work or becoming ill, by taking the right precautions in your business to mitigate the risk and it should be a top priority for you.
Training empowers your staff to apply what they have learned.
Giving them the tools to do the job, develops their knowledge and, therefore, they are more likely to take ownership of health and safety in the workplace.
It is your core control tool when looking at health and safety. We spent time on the training looking at this.Whilst they will not be experts, they will understand the principles of risk assessment. An assessment is not the end goal, but a call for action.
There are still far too many companies and directors being prosecuted for paying lip service to health and safety. By creating a safe work environment and giving attention to your employees’ welfare, not only are you complying with the law, but you are also leading from the front.
This course can help develop safety champions in your workplace. The advantage of this is a shared responsibility to apply what they learn on the course and assist you.
On the one hand, you may see health and safety as common sense (what’s all the fuss?)Or you may feel it is too complicated. We can sympathise with both these extremes. No one starts off as a safety professional,but having a caring,sharing attitude and an inclusive company, by looking after all workers shows you care.
This course hopes to relieve this uncertainty, by starting you off on your health aid safety journey. Equally, we can take care of any element of your health and safety.(Getting staff involved with a good grounding will allow them to buy into what you’re trying to achieve) We can mentor staff and get you to where you need to be. Here are some reasons to put staff on the course.
