Why choose this online Office Safety training for your staff?
Protecting the health and wellbeing of workers is the most important reason. Furthermore, there are other strong moral, financial and legal reasons too.
Modern society doesn’t accept that people should suffer injury or ill-health because of their work yet workplace injuries and ill-health still cost the UK economy around £15 billion a year. So consider the costs involved if someone at your work has an accident….
Further, management of health and safety at work has the force of law. Both employers and individuals can be prosecuted under criminal law. And also sued for compensation under civil law, if something goes wrong.
The main responsibility on employers is to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their staff. Also, employers have a duty to protect people they don’t employ but who are affected by their activities. For example, contractors, visitors, temporary staff and the public.
In practice, there are a number of ways to fulfil legal requirements. Generally speaking, employers must make staff aware of the risks and how they are controlled.
So, this Office Safety course provides staff with this awareness. And also, where appropriate, encourages them to seek specific information relevant to their particular place of work.
