Health and safety is incredibly important to ensure that no workers hurt themselves while performing their duties at the workplace. It ensures that people can work knowing that all of their equipment has been tested, and that people around them have already been trained in health and safety. It allows everyone to remain confident and feel safe at workplace.

  • Benefits of safety training
Educating the employees within an office workplace on the safety rules of a given work environment provides them with a sense of safety and security whilst they work. This is obviously a good thing but it can also benefit the business in that it can potentially lead to an increased productivity level. Other benefits of safety training include a reduction in accident and incident rates, meaning that the business will not have many claims put against them for compensation. This also reflects positively on an organization too.

Safety training is incredibly important within a workplace, as it provides a way for different companies to document the proof that this kind of training has occurred. Potential lawsuits that involve injuries could be avoided in the future as they will have documented proof that their employees have been on courses that train them about health and safety.

  • Kinds
There are many training courses available, given that health and safety is such a huge topic that covers many different topics. For instance, people are able to go on eye safety and lyme disease training, whilst other people might just go on training courses that include workplace violence or electrical current safety. It's down to the company to decide which courses are relevant and to put the employees on the right training course.

It is very important that staff are aware of any hazards in a work place. It is an offence for your employers if they do not warn or provide any training to staff of the safety procedures. The last thing you want is, to work for a company where you going to be expose to any danger. All companies must have a regular inspections on their equipments to unsure the safety of their staff, other wise they could be paying out thousands of pounds in compensations and put up long term sickness should any member of staff injure them selves. Therefore, if your in an office and you come across a broken chair, you must remove it, report it and place a hazard warning sign on the cahir and then point it out to your line manager. If you fail to so, then you can be liable for failing to take action and not report it. It is not just an employer that is responsible for health and safety,it is also the members of staff and should they come across a hazard, then they must report it, as you would not want a workmate to suffer any injuries or yourself, so it you notice some thing your employer has not taken care of, make sure they do.

Yes, of course! Its in your interest to make sure where ever you work, you must make sure that your employer has a Health And Safety Notice in view for every one to see and understand how important it to stay safe. Its your welfare and if you have an accident, you probably will never work again, so it is very important.

There are two obvious reasons why workplace safety is important, i.e.,

1.  Injury

2.  Death

These two reasons should need no explanation. There are number of organizations where workplace safety is ignored but this is somehow which also affects their work. If more incidents occur at workplace then it is an obvious that the productivity will also get decreased. So, instead of ignoring, the organizations should arrange the online training programs for employees/workers to prevent the work and man life.

Safety is essential in the workplace, as it is covered in most countries by Law, and if you don't have safety policies, you might fnd yourself not only breaking the law but being bothsued by a customer and you might lose your job, and if you are the owner, you will have to pay for accidents, unless you are insured, there might be a payout, but not necessarily for negligence is proven. GET INFORMATION FROM THE AUTHORITY IN YOUR CITY, who will guide you on health and safety issues. Hope useful.
