What are the benefits?
There are a number of key benefits from attending the Controlling Hazards in the Workplace. Formal Health and Safety training is the best first step towards maintaining a low accident rate and keeping lost man hours through sickness and injury to a minimum. Insurance companies look favourably towards employers who take health and safety matters seriously and premium rates will often reflect this.
In the event of an accident, one of the first areas that HSE will look at is training records. If you can demonstrate up to date recognised, relevant training and competence then you are in a much better place in a court of law.
Health and Safety training also have great benefits for the employee. The operational employee is generally the person at risk.
