The benefits of gaining Health & Safety training for employees

Obtaining the correct Health & Safety (H&S) training for your employees has been shown to prevent workplace accidents. The Health and Safety Executive reported that in 2013/14 there were 133 fatal accidents in the workplace.  The North West was one of the highest in the Country with 15 industrial fatal accidents.  These figures do not include 70 members of the public who died through an accident in a workplace. Having your employees trained could prevent accidents keeping your staff and visitors safe from illness and injury.

H&S Training can reduce a company’s insurance premiums, lead to increased productivity, less absenteeism and save on legal costs.  Insurance premiums will reduce if no claims are made, highlighting that the company is vigilant when it comes to their employees’ safety in the workplace.  In turn this could ensure that the company gains a positive reputation within the community. When employees feel safe they communicate a positive view of the company creating competition for any vacancies that arise in the business.

Training a company’s managers in H&S can ensure that they will do regular checks on staff. They can then highlight any problems and once identified the appropriate action can be taken.  This course of action can prevent future problems for example fewer cases of work related illness or accidents and can result in reduced claims on the firm.  Companies who are shown to have been negligent and do not protect their employees or members of the public can be held responsible and fined.  Health and Safety training from a company such as FTW Training will give your company the benefit of our experience and professionalism reducing claims and accidents.
