Can Effective Health And Safety Training Help Your Business?

According to the HSE, over 200 people are killed each year as a result of accidents within the workplace, over one million are injured and over two million suffer illnesses which are caused by, or made worse, directly by their work. Whilst these figures may sound extreme, they should also be easily preventable if companies ensure all members of their staff complete regular health and safety training courses. By simply ensuring that your staff have completed health and safety training relevant to their job roles, you can:

  • Reduce their chances or injury or illness
  • Develop a positive workplace health and safety culture
  • Discover what you could do to manage your health and safety practices in a better manner
  • Ensure that your business meets their legal duty to protect the health and safety of all members of your staff

Additionally regular, effective health and safety training can:

  • Contribute towards ensuring that every member of your staff is at least competent in the aspects of health and safety relevant to their work
  • Help your business prevent workplace accidents and ill health
  • Reduce the financial costs and absence rates associated with workplace accidents and occupational ill health

What Kind Of Health and Safety Training Is Available?

When you think of any health and safety training course, you immediately imagine a boring, tedious day. Probably consisting of uninspiring, classroom based ‘training’ delivered by an overly enthusiastic ‘expert’. They probably rely on powerpoint presentations and dated handouts. However, that shouldn’t be the case. Health and safety training shouldn’t just be about dull classroom courses and obtaining the required certificates to do your job.
