Health & Safety at work Training
Why provide health and safety training?
Providing Health and Safety information and training helps you to:
To ensure that people who work for you know how to work safely and without risks to health;
To develop a positive Health and Safety culture, where Safe and Healthy working becomes second nature to everyone;
To meet your legal duty to protect the Health and Safety of your employees.
- Will contribute towards making your employees competent in Health and Safety;
- Can help your business avoid the distress that accidents and ill health cause;
- Can help you avoid the financial costs of accidents and occupational ill health, such as damaged products, lost production and demotivated staff. Don’t forget that your insurance might not cover all these costs.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires you to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of your employees.
This is expanded by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which identify situations where Health and Safety training is particularly important, e.g. when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating.
Like many employers, you may not be able to provide this training on your own, in which case you will need competent help.
Who needs Health and Safety Training?
Whether you are an employer or self-employed, are you sure that you’re up to date with how to identify the hazards and control the risks from your work? Do you know how to get help – from your trade association, your local Chamber of Commerce, or your Health and Safety enforcing authority? Do you know what you must do about consulting your employees, or their representatives, on health and safety issues? If not, you would probably benefit from some training.
Your managers and supervisors do!
If you employ managers or supervisors they need to know what you expect from them in terms of Health and Safety, and how you expect them to deliver. They need to understand your Health and Safety policy, where they fit in, and how you want health and safety managed. They may also need training in the specific hazards of your processes and how you expect the risks to be controlled.
Your employees do!
Everyone who works for you, including self-employed people, needs to know how to work safely and without risks to health. Like your supervisors, they need to know about your Health and Safety policy, your arrangements for implementing it, and the part they play. They also need to know how they can raise any Health and Safety concerns with you.
1 Day – Health & Safety at Work Training with a maximum of 6 delegates per course.
Each course delegate will be given a theoretical test (multi-choice format) to assess their job-related safety knowledge and a certificate of attendance will be awarded to successful candidates.

Hi , just a quick message to say that today we had Ryan take a course for 3 of our staff on counterbalance forklifts. The feedback I have received is that the course was delivered very professionally and a lot of new information was shared . Our on site training facilities were used to deliver the theory test which Ryan will now be familiar with . I would like to say we were impressed by Ryan and any further training we require within the Millcroft group we will contact you for a quote .
