Health & Safety

Everyone who works for you needs to know how to work safely and without risk to their health. This includes contractors and self-employed people.

You must give your workers clear instructions and information, as well as adequate training. Make sure you include employees with particular training needs, for example new recruits, people changing jobs or taking on extra responsibilities, young employees and health and safety representatives.

Think about how much training you need. If you’re a low-risk business, providing simple information or instructions is likely to be enough – for example if you’re based in an office.

Make sure everyone has the right level of information on:

  • hazards (things that could cause them harm)
  • risks (the chances of that harm occurring)
  • measures in place to deal with those hazards and risks
  • how to follow any emergency procedures

Ask your workers if the training is relevant and effective. Keeping training records will help you decide if refresher training is needed.

The information and training should be easy to understand. Everyone working for you should know what they are expected to do.

Some of your staff may have particular training needs, for example:

  • new recruits
  • people changing jobs or taking on extra responsibilities
  • young employees, who are particularly vulnerable to accidents
  • health and safety representatives

3 DAY - LEVEL 3 AWARD IN FIRST AID AT WORK COURSE (RQF)
I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed the First Aid at Work course! Paul is a fantastic trainer - he’s very engaging and it’s obvious that he genuinely cares about making sure his trainees have the knowledge and skills needed to confidently perform first aid if required. There was the perfect balance of theory and practical activities, and I was really impressed by how Paul promoted covid safety and being respectful to each other when we were undertaking the practical elements. I’ve had such an enjoyable three days and feel like I’ve learned so much! Keep up the good work, Paul - I hope our paths cross sometime in the future (maybe on the refresher course!)
