Unfortunately, workplace accidents are more common than not, and thousands of them occur at businesses all across the UK each year. We all want to limit workplace accidents as much as possible, but it can be difficult to understand how we can best do this and keep our staff safe. This is where health and safety training comes in, and gives us the knowledge that we need to keep our staff and our business safe, by following the HSE legislation.
We have put together this short post, to share with you just how health and safety training can help to prevent accidents in the workplace. SM Safety Training & Consultancy are a UK-based training and consultancy business, providing people and businesses across the country with both online and classroom-based courses in health and safety, first aid, fire safety and more.
Provides Employees With Health and Safety Knowledge
Health and safety training provides your employees with the health and safety knowledge that they need, to help prevent and reduce accidents from occurring. By having your employees participate in health and safety training, they will be able to recognise risks and hazards, ensure that they’re following the right procedures, and know how to handle incidents when they occur. All of the above will help your employees to prevent accidents from occurring, by knowing how best to prevent them should they occur.
Ensures Staff are up to Date with HSE Legislation
It also ensures that your employees are up to date with HSE Legislation, which is Britain's national regulator for workplace health and safety. The HSE Legislation is there to prevent work-related death, injury and ill health and is something that all businesses in the UK need to abide by legally. By having your employees carry out health and safety training, you can ensure that they’re following the necessary rules and procedures to keep them and their colleagues safe.
Brings Safety to the Forefront
Health and safety training also brings safety to the forefront, and promotes safety awareness and education. Health and safety can often be something that we forget about in the workplace till we encounter an emergency, which is a mistake as we need to be prepared to prevent and stop accidents from happening in the first place. By having your employees participate in health and safety training you will be bringing it to their minds, and encouraging them to consider health and safety whilst they’re at work.
