Health & Safety
Meeting your Health and Safety obligations
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision required to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of their employees.
This is expanded by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, for instance, when people start work, are exposed to new or increased risks and where existing skills may need updating.
Providing health and safety training helps you to:
- ensure that people who work for you know how to work safely and without risks to health
- develop a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working become second nature to everyone
- meet your legal duty to protect the health and safety of your employees
- make your employees competent in health and safety
- avoid the distress that accidents and ill health cause in your business
- avoid the financial costs of accidents and occupational ill health, such as damaged products, lost production and demotivated staff
