I have always written about the need to carry out health and safety testing for your business, whether it’s PAT Testing based on a risk assessment or fixed wire testing. Both of these are dependent on the type of business and the working environment …
Health And Safety Training
One thing I have never really focused on is the need to ensure that your staff – and you for that matter – receive the appropriate health and safety training or even regular refresher training.
So do you have employees who have not yet been inducted in health and safety and/or fire and evacuation? At FTS Safety Solutions we can show you a cost effective corporate solution that helps when working to a tight budget but still require validated workplace safety training. We are able to offer both induction and refresher training which covers Health and Safety as well as Fire Evacuation training for employees.
You always run the risk of delaying training until you have a sufficient number of employees to warrant paying for the time of a qualified occupational safety instructor. Sometimes, the thought of sending several employees training simultaneously can panic you as you can see it affecting the running of your business whilst they are away.
Well, our in-house online Health and Safety Induction and refresher courses can help resolve all of these issues and more! They contain the same content and benefits as our IOSH approved induction course, but the certificate awarded upon completion comes from our training partner.
If you have staff who have not received refresher training for 2-3 years, you can train your employees on demand; today if need be! No need to wait for a whole class and then have the problem of finding cover, you will even be safe in the knowledge that the training received by your employees will be consistent.
The course is assessment based, therefore you can demonstrate how every employee has performed. No more nodding off in class, no more employees feeling bored and missing vital information; the content is delivered online and is validated, providing consistent, reliable tutorials in Health and Safety AND Fire and Evacuation for every employee.
These courses are generic and offers the “need to know” information that is appropriate to all employees, but obviously can not cover any specific training needs that may arise due to risks associated with your individual workplace.
Incidentally, the course doesn’t have to be completed in one attempt; it can be done over a period of time thereby reducing the amount of time an employee is away from the business.
Until next time …So if you feel you would like to talk to us about your health & safety testing needs then please do call me on 0330 6600264 or click here to ping over an email and I’ll call you right back.
