Training & Instruction

Here at OJ Health and Safety we understand the importance of training and our health and safety advisors are here to help!

Training

Why do we need it?

To ensure that employees are able to carry out their tasks safely and without risks to health.

To show employees what they should and should not do when they carry out their workplace activities.

Employees should be suitably trained in all aspects of their job from the most menial to the riskiest activities in the workplace.

Appropriate employee training can reduce workplace incidents and accidents which in turn can lead to reduced costs, lower insurance premiums and fewer potential legal claims. It will also promote a healthier, safer and happier workforce.

Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to provide free of charge training, instruction and supervision necessary for all its employees. Those who have control over premises have to consider the safety of anyone who comes onto the premises, including contractors and customers.

Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 places a duty on employers to assess and manage risks to their employees and others arising from work activities. Employees must work safely in accordance with their training and the instructions given to them.

Other options to consider:

 Refresher

Refresher training is given to employees on the assumption that existing skills have become out-dated or obsolete. This could be because of the advancement of technology or simply that people can forget things.

Employees could become complacent with safety procedures which could lead to mistakes or errors, for this reason, it is important to refresh employees knowledge and skills.

Toolbox talks

A toolbox talk is an informal workplace safety meeting. These are intended to communicate vital safety information to employees. The talks will help facilitate health and safety discussions and will promote a positive safety culture within the organisation.

The talks focus on various safety topics that are related to any specific workplace activity. For example, you can use them to deal with

  • hazards
  • safe systems of work
  • risk assessments
  • training needs
  • health and safety updates
  • incidents and accident investigation updates
  • new equipment.

The talks can be done face-to-face, at shift handovers, planned huddles or in a short presentation. They are often kept short and can be carried out by managers, supervisors or even fellow workplace colleagues.

The talks can be more informal than other types of training.

Together with our staff you can put together a bespoke program of training covering exactly what you need, now and for the future. O J Health and Safety will then produce certificates according to the content of each course.
