Why is this training important?
In the UK 1000’s people get injured yearly due to lack of health & safety procedures. We in the UK take Health & Safety very seriously. The Health and safety act 1974 states that Employers are responsible for providing safe and healthy workplace conditions as well as the right systems and methods for safe activities in the workplace. And that employee also has a vital part to play in this equation under ‘duty of care’. They all need the right knowledge and the right attitude and skills which demands proper training in the basics of health and safety, as well as specific training for individual tasks, from manual handling to risk assessment.
