Ensuring safe working practices within the workplace is essential for every organisation. Staff, visitors and management should all know how to work and operate safely and correctly within their own working environments. The Working Safely Online Training Course is ideal for employers, employees and individuals who require fully accredited Health and Safety training for within the workplace.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, e.g when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating. Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff – both the employers and employees. Although most of the legal duties fall to the employer, Health and Safety law is one of the few pieces of legislation that places duties on the employee as well.
There are three reasons for managing risk at work that bring benefit for all concerned – moral; not causing harm to work colleagues, legislative; the law requires it! – And finally financial; all accidents bear a cost to both parties. Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the working day not having been injured by any workplace activity. Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people. The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working to safe systems of work.
That’s where our working safely course can help. The course covers why we should work safely, defines hazard and risk, identifying common hazards, improving safety performance and protecting the environment. Training is a big part of changing attitudes towards taking risks in the workplace and can make a real difference.
