One of the most important parts of health and safety is teaching your employees how to take care of themselves. They need all the relevant information about the risks they face and protecting themselves from them.
That's where health and safety training comes in. The knowledge OHS training gives your employees could save their lives.
To ensure they have this life saving information you need to include these four things in your company's health and safety training...
Include these four things in your company's health and safety training
1. Train your employees to recognise risks
If your employees know how to identify dangerous risks, they can take the steps to protect themselves from them.
This is vital because you and your safety officer or health and safety representative can't be everywhere at once.
2. Train employees on how to protect themselves from risks
Identifying risks won't help your employees at all if you don't train them on how to protect themselves from them.
Teach your employees about all the safety procedures they must follow and then ensure they follow them.

This is important because accidents may not just affect one person, but rather a whole group. If employees know how to stop these situations, they can keep themselves and others safe.
4. Train them on how to deal with emergencies
If something does go seriously wrong, your employees must be able to deal with the situation quickly and effectively.
