Workplace Safety Training
Safety training in the workplace is essential for the well-being of employees, as well as for the overall success of the organisation. Here at FAB we offer a variety of courses to ensure that employees are trained in the necessary safety protocols for their specific workplace environment and that meet the criteria set by the regulatory body, the HSE.
We have several courses that are typically required for all employees regardless of their position or job duties. Other courses may be more specific to certain industries or job roles such as fire wardens and marshals and some workplaces may also have the need for specialised training such as hazardous materials handling.
It's important for employers to assess the specific safety risks present in their workplace and ensure that employees receive the appropriate training. By investing in safety training, employers can help prevent accidents, injuries, and even fatalities on the job, while also increasing productivity and morale among employees.
All individuals involved with fire safety within their organisation must receive all the relevant information and training to deal with fire safety issues effectively and efficiently. The provision of these fire safety qualifications will assist organisations in meeting their legal obligations as well as providing a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
Health & Safety
All employers are required to have the correct systems in place to ensure a healthy and safe working environment for employees and any other people who may be affected by their business activities. Through achievement of one of our health and safety qualifications, employees will develop the appropriate knowledge and attitude to contribute to an organisation’s continued compliance.
Manual Handling injuries are one of the biggest causes of lost working days in the UK, with sprains and strains due to the incorrect lifting and moving of objects causing most suffering to employees. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and subsequent Regulations require that employees are provided with information and training and this general requirement should be supplemented with specific training and information on manual handling.
Risk assessment is a crucial process that helps identify potential hazards in the workplace, allowing for the implementation of measures to prevent accidents and injuries. It involves evaluating the likelihood and severity of risks and taking steps to mitigate or eliminate them. Conducting regular risk assessments can help ensure the safety of employees and visitors, as well as protect the organisation from costly lawsuits and damage to its reputation. Proper training equips employees with the knowledge and skills needed to recognise and respond to risks in the workplace. It also helps create a culture of safety where everyone is aware of their responsibilities and understands how to act in different situations.
