By Law it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure there is reasonable protection in the workplace to protect the health and safety of the workforce and anyone who may be affected by the business. Part of this responsibility is for the employer to provide training.
Health and safety training gives individuals the knowledge, skills and confidence to be reactive and proactive in identifying and reducing risks in the workplace. Employers who promote and introduce health and safety training can positively influence peoples’ behaviours and keep people safer. Adopting the disciplines of regular training, helps embed health and safety into the working culture.
Health and Safety Compliance
We carry out health and safety Inspections and Audits to enable your business to satisfy itself that it is implementing a robust health and safety approach, so it is comprehensive, ethical and meets UK legal regulation standards. An in-depth audit can be very useful when establishing whether your current health and safety management system is working and if employees are observing health and safety practices at work. Audits can cover the whole safety management system or aspects, such as your health and safety documentation, arrangements, legal compliance, risk assessments and overall level of training within the business.
The Institute of Occupational Health and Safety (IOSH) is recognised worldwide as an organisation for setting high standards in the field of health and safety.
Employers will decide on their own first aid requirements appropriate to the size of the workforce, nature of the business and overall risks in the workplace.
Employers have a duty, supported by health and safety legislation, to have the policies and procedures in place to ensure they have the appropriate measures to manage fire safety and provide the appropriate training in the workplace.
As defined under the Health and Safety Executive, manual handling means transporting or supporting a load by hand or bodily force.
