Improving the safety of your working environment reduces the risk of finding yourself in a legal battle. Our health and safety training, in Reading, Berkshire, teaches your staff the importance of working safely.
On average, over a five-year period, 254 people are killed each year in accidents at work, while more than one million people are injured, and more than two million suffer illnesses caused by or exacerbated by their work. Preventing accidents and ill-health caused by work is a key priority for everyone involved with a business.
The human element, alongside occupational and environmental factors, majorly contributes to work accidents. Ignorance, complacency, haste, and distraction all contribute to an unsafe working environment. Training can have a positive impact on the working practices of a workforce. If your employees are informed and understand health and safety actions, they are more likely to follow safe working procedures.
As the owner or manager of a business, you know just how valuable, competent employees are. Providing health and safety information and training helps you to ensure that your employees are not injured or made ill by the work that they do, and develop a positive health and safety culture where working safely becomes second nature to them.

Effective training will contribute towards making your employees competent in health and safety, help your business avoid the distress that accidents and ill-health cause, and help you avoid the financial costs of accidents and occupational ill-health. Don’t forget that your insurance doesn’t cover all these costs, and damaged products, reduced production, and de-motivated staff are the result.
Whether you feel it is integral or not, it is a legal requirement for your staff to be health-and-safety-trained. The law requires that you provide whatever information, instruction, and training necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of your employees.
