Safety training is an essential part of running a business. It ensures that the staff know the rules and regulations as well as how to carry out tasks safely without having an accident at work.
What type of safety training should an employer provide to prevent an accident at work?
This will vary a lot between different jobs but what it comes down to is the health and safety of the employees and those around them. They need to be trained in how to carry out their roles safely and whilst following any health and safety guidelines that may apply to that situation to avoid a work injury.
How soon should an employer compile safety training?
The answer is simple, safety training should be compiled straight away. Safety should be an employer’s number one concern and each new starter should have safety training and briefings before they start their job. There is no excuse not to compile safety training because if not adhered to, work injuries are more likely to occur.
Should safety training be carried out again after the initial session?
Yes it should. Rules and regulations are changing all the time and you should always make sure the employees are aware of any changes. Regular safety training sessions should be provided to make sure your staff are fully aware of how to prevent an accident at work. This not only covers you as an employer but keeps your staff safe.
