According to a recent study, there are two hundred work related deaths, over 1 million work related injuries, and an estimated 2 million existing illnesses made worse because of work related factors every year. Taking all of these things into account, businesses and companies can lose up to 27.3 million working days every year, which totals to about ?14.3 billion in losses annually. With all these numbers, it's fairly easy to say that health and safety training in the workplace is an essential course that all employers should consider giving their employees. Not only does it keep you from monumental losses, it also increases your workforce's efficiency and improves their output.
The Benefits Of Health And Safety Training
With each job, whether it entails field work or desk tasks, come numerous risks that could endanger the health and well-being of your workers. The dangers of fires, falls, trips, exposure to hazardous substances, electrocution, and many other accidents are all too real, and when your workers fall victim to these dangers, it will be you who has to find the solutions to the problem. Having one employee call in sick because of work related reasons doesn't seem like much, but when it happens all too often, you might want to look at just how much you lose with each injury.
Health and safety training keeps your employees aware of the potential risks of working in and around your workspace, as well as the procedures and precautions they should employ to keep them out of harm's way. This training will not only help reduce the dangers of work related injuries and accidents, but also improve the productivity in your workspace; potentially increasing your workers' output.
How Health And Safety Training Works
Health and safety awareness training works by providing your workers with important information and knowledge to help them prevent work related injuries and accidents within their workspace. By identifying the unique occupational hazards present in their space, you can teach your employees to steer clear of potential risks and dangers, as well as find solutions so that certain hazards won't even need to be present at all.
By enrolling your workers in a health and safety awareness training course, you not only ensure their well-being, but also save yourself from potential losses and extra costs. Consider getting a health and safety training course for your workers today and reap the benefits of a well-oiled operation!
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.
