Working safely is in the interest of all staff – 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 in the UK that places duties on the employee as well. There are three reasons for managing risk at work that bring benefit for all concerned – (1) Moral - not causing harm to work colleagues, (2) Legislative - the law requires it and (3) 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 happen 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 hazards and risks, 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.
