In 2015-2016, 144 workers were killed in UK workplaces. In addition to the tragic loss of life and personal suffering, employers found themselves faced with court fines and costs, increased insurance premiums, compensation claims, reduced productivity, damaged reputation and low staff morale. Teaching from these qualification's will help avoid such consequences.
Health and Safety training:
-Helps your employees identify hazards and adopt safe and healthy working practices
-Helps to avoid the pain, anguish and financial costs that accidents and ill health cause
-Promotes a positive culture of health and safety, in which unsafe and unhealthy working are not tolerated
-Enables your employees to spot ways to improve health and safety management
-Enables you to meet your legal duty to protect the health and safety of your employees and others.
All businesses have a legal duty to provide information, training and supervision to employees to enable them to carry out their work safely, not just to front-line staff but also to directors, managers and those in other key roles. Of course, this costs money and time (both of which are likely to be in short supply). But remember, there are major business benefits to be gained from safety training. By cutting accidents and ill health and by helping to ensure faultless operations, safety training can make a major contribution to the success of your business.
