Working safely is in the interest and concern of everyone – both 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, customers or the general public
+ legislative; the law requires it!
+ 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 why I offer an online working safely course, that anyone can buy.
The course is approved by both the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
It 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.
This course is ideal for employees of all businesses, but also can give a useful initial background to anybody setting up a new business or who has recently done so.
