Health and Safety Training

Employers must ensure that employees are trained to allow them to work safely. As an employer, you must provide clear instructions and information, and adequate training, for your employees.

Providing health and safety training helps to:

  • Ensure employees know how to work safely
  • Develop a good health and safety culture, where safe working becomes second nature to everyone
  • Allow you to meet your legal duty to protect the health and safety of your employees

Providing effective training can:

  • Contribute towards making your employees competent
  • Help you avoid the distress that accidents and ill health cause
  • Help you avoid the financial costs of accidents and ill health
