The EssentialSkillz Health & Safety Induction training introduces the importance of good health and safety practices in the workplace. The course introduces the Health and Safety Act that affects workplaces and discusses why it is in place. The online course outlines the specific responsibilities that employees have in relation to health and safety at work, including complying with procedures, participating in training and taking responsibility for the safety of themselves and others. The Health and Safety induction covers the type of accidents that can occur in workplaces, what contributes to accidents, eg, environmental and human factors and how ill-health and injury can be avoided. The course looks at what to do if an accident occurs and the importance of reporting accidents. Hazards and risks are discussed as well as the importance of risk assessments and how employees can become more risk aware to promote safe working.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Health and Safety Induction course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation eg, your Health and safety Policies, all at no extra cost.
