Combining Health and Safety Training with Job-Specific Training
Many workers will require some form of job-specific training when they begin a new job at a company or switch roles within an existing one. This will teach them what to do in their new task, as well as providing instructions on how to operate machinery. This is especially important in many industries where equipment is used such as the construction industry where workers will be using a variety of equipment which can pose a danger to their wellbeing such as pneumatic drills and excavators. For these construction workers job-specific training can be combined with qualifications like the NEBOSH Construction Certificate, SMSTS or SSSTS certificates to enable them to identify hazards and work more safely on site.
Job-specific training should be combined with health and safety training as the two nearly always go hand-in-hand. This is because the health and safety of the operator and those nearby in the vicinity, whether it is fellow workers or members of the public, will depend upon the correct and safe operation of the equipment at all times, as well as knowing the emergency procedures and learning information such as the location of emergency stop buttons. The two are so intertwined that health and safety training can often be provided at the same time as job-specific training provided that the person providing the training is competent in both.

Need an Accredited Course?
Along with designing bespoke health and safety training programmes, we also run the accredited NEBOSH, IOSH and ConstructionSkills (CSkills) health and safety courses as open courses at selected venues across the UK, as well as in-house for those companies who have a number of employees requiring the training, as it will be much more cost effective than sending them all onto a scheduled open course.
For more information please call 0115 984 9940 to discuss the options or send us an online contact form. Alternatively, use the "Courses" menu at the top of the page to view the courses and qualifications for the various awarding bodies.
These courses form the basis for our in-house training programmes. They can either be run as they are if the outline is exactly what you want, or can be be modified to suit the individual requirements of your organisation. Two or more can also be combined to tailor a bespoke training session for you.
