Over 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work and over one million people are injured.
Over two million suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work.
That is not good odds. So, preventing accidents and ill health caused by work should be a key priority for everyone at work.
As the owner or manager of a business you know that competent employees are valuable. Your business probably depends on them..
Providing health & safety information and training helps you to:
I know you're obliged to organise periodical training of employees, BUT
Aren't you tired of having to arrange and prepare the sessions, especially since you don't always
have a ready-to-use format?
Are you always aware of what you're legally required to include when it comes to training?
Now, you can have tailor-made professional training for all your employees without the exorbitant costs!
Four key health and safety training aspects you must manage and control
1. Analysing and evaluating health and safety training needs (in-house and external)
It doesn't matter what size your company is, analysing and evaluating training needs is key to your future business success for health, safety, environment and quality.
2. Evaluating quality of training content and how to apply it to your workplace
Ensure your employees are getting the right training for what they need to know. Don't waste your money on training that doesn't enhance your employees productivity, health, safety, environment or quality. Make the right choice the first time round and save time and money.
3. Maintain your training records
When the DoL comes to visit and you have to show them proof of health and safety training, you'll be ready for them by using a simple programme for your training records.
4. Ensure refresher training is done by flagging alerts
Diaries are great things to have, but they don't alert you when you need to do your training. Flagging training alerts within a training records programme will ensure you're always on the ball with your planning.
It's a good idea to have a health and safety training programme, to give you plenty of time to plan, evaluate, choose and budget for your employees training requirements.
Until next time,
