Health and Safety Training

training mind map

It is a legal requirement for employers to provide adequate health and safety training to employees. The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) reuires employers to provide instruction, training and guidance to ensure health and safety of employees as is reasonably practical. From experience we know that some organisations have difficulty ensuring that managers and supervisors take health and safety training seriously. Many are unaware that they can be prosecuted for their individual breaches of safety legislation. Sentient provide an extensive range of health and safety training events to ensure that employees are aware of all their responsibilities.

Health and safety training should be provided in a variety of circumstances, such as, on recruitment, when a job role changes, when new equipment is being introduced or when working practices change. Health and safety training for employees is essential, not only to keep them safe and healthy but because it has the knock on effect of making them more competent in their job, thus improving productivity. Developing a strong health and safety culture helps businesses avoid costly accidents and can improve production, staff motivation and retention.

The health and safety training offered by Sentient consists of open and in-house courses, nationally recognised certificates such as IOSH, and CIEH, bespoke health and safety training and online courses. Each of the bespoke courses are designed specifically to meet the exact needs of the business or department. Every health and safety training event is focused on making staff aware of their responsibilities under the relevant safety legislation and increasing their competence.
