Here's how emergency health and safety training saved Lucy's life

by , 25 September 2014
It seems like an ordinary day and your employee Lucy is doing her work. Suddenly the whole building starts to shake and part of it collapses on top of Lucy. She's alive with minor injuries and she's stuck with a few other colleagues.

In a situation like this, most employees would panic, scream and collapse in terrified tears. But you gave Lucy emergency health and safety training, so she knows exactly what to do in this situation.

Here's how that emergency health and safety training you gave Lucy will save her life...

 

Here's why your emergency health and safety training will save Lucy's life

 
This training gives Lucy the information she needs to deal with a situation like this calmly. For example, effective emergency safety training would teach Lucy and her colleagues to first check the damage. They must find out if there's a way out and who has serious injuries.
 
If there's no way out they must check the phone lines and cell phone signal to see if they can tell someone they're stuck.
 
That's not the only way emergency health and safety training will save Lucy's life.

Can an HSE officer do induction training?
 
According to the OHSA, you must do induction training for new employees, external contract workers, even employees returning from maternity leave. And every time there's new legislation, or if you have a new safety process or equipment. 
 
It sounds like you could be doing induction every month! And who has the time to create proper training material? And ensure its correct?

Here's the other way your emergency health and safety training will save Lucy's life

 
Your emergency health and safety training should cover how to deal with injuries. If employees, like Lucy, have injuries they need to know what to do.
 
For example, they'll know how to stop bleeding when they can't get to first aid supplies.
 
This is a very extreme case, but it could happen and your employees need the emergency training to deal with it. 
 
Because of the effective emergency OHS training you gave Lucy, she knows what to do to get out safely and survive injuries. Make sure all your employees get this vital training. 


PS: We strongly recommend you check out the Health & Safety Training manual. It has five legally compliant safety training modules for less than R200 each!
