The foremost reason for having health and safety in the workplace is to keep people safe and free from harm. As human beings, we should have a natural desire and feel obliged to keep ourselves and everyone else safe.
Not only employers, but employees have strict legal obligations to adhere to when relating to health and safety. There are many ways that businesses ensure that their place of work becomes a much safer place for all. For example, risk assessments should be carried out on sites to ensure that the environment and machinery used within sites adhere to the Health and Safety at work act (1974).
Even a small accident or ill health event can result in substantial costs for a business. Accidents can result in a loss of production (up to a 3-day site closure), compensation claims, and of course, job losses.
This wouldn’t be good for you, or your business, right?
So let’s make sure that you’re fully aware and informed, so we can avoid making those mistakes which may have a long-term effect…
Here at MP Skills, we offer a fully-interactive course, with the aim to give you the understanding of the principles of safety management and give an insight into the critical impacts of poor performance. Not only will you learn skills on how to recognise and identify key areas of accident causation, but also knowledge on inspections, along with the moral/legal requirements and personal limitations.
This course would be suitable for operatives, supervisors and managers, and if an employer is embedding a behavioural safety mind-set within the business then all staff would benefit from attending this course.
The training day will be highly participative involving a mix of practical activities, syndicate working and group discussions. At the end of the session, the delegates will prepare an action plan to implement at work.
Packed with knowledge, interaction, group exercises and blended learning techniques, our courses aim to tackle safety training in a new and innovative style, finished with a multiple-choice assessment. Successful completion of the course leads to an MP Skills Certificate of Achievement.
