Injuries caused by poor health and safety at work
During 2013-2014 78,000 people were injured as a result of poor health and safety training at work in the UK reports the HSE.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires employers to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of employees.
The HSE discuss on their website the reasons for providing effective health and safety training. It:
- ensures that people who work for you know how to work safely and without risks to health
- develops a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to everyone;
- meets your legal duty to protect the health and safety of your employees.
