Today we are talking about Information, Training and Supervision.
Whether you are an employer or self-employed are you sure you’re up to date with how to identify the hazards and control the risks from your work?
The Health and Safety at Work Act requires you to provide whatever information, instruction and training is necessary to ensure the safety of your workers.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations go on to identify specific situations where it is required, for example when people start work, on exposure to, or increased risks or where existing skills may need refreshing.
If you employ managers or supervisors they need to know how you want them to manage safety. They need to understand your health and safety policy, where they fit in and may need training in the specific hazards of your processes and how you expect the risks to be controlled.
Like many employers you may not be in a position to provide this training on your own in which case you may need competent help.
Craven Safety Services offer a range of health and safety training courses both online and in the classroom. Visit our website or give us a call today to find out more.

Today we’re going to talk about the importance of training to your employees.

Providing training to your employees ensures that the tasks set for them are carried out safely, without risk to themselves or others.

It provides a positive health and safety culture within your business, and meets your legal requirements as an employer.

There are many different types of training; classroom-based, online, toolbox talks and of course on-the-job training.

It is vitally important that all training is recorded, either by certificate or a record internally within your business.

A training needs analysis could be carried out to establish which training is required and it’s always good practice to keep a training matrix to record when renewal dates are, etc.

Here at Craven Safety Services we offer classroom-based training in fire awareness, manual handling, risk assessment, and conflict management. All our course dates are on our website, as well as an online booking system. We offer templates for toolbox talks and a good selection of online training courses as well. If you’re unsure about the level of training, just pick up the phone and give us a call.

Welcome back

Today I wanted to touch on the importance of training your employees for the role that they are expected to carry out.

For people in charge of construction sites it is vitally important that training is carried out relevant to the job they have been employed to do.

This is where the CITB courses come into play as they are highly recognised qualifications which will train the operative in charge what they need to know as regards Health and Safety when running a site.

The SSSTS course is designed if you have a supervisory role. It provides an understanding of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues. It highlights legal responsibilities and the need to promote health and safety to supervise effectively.

The SMSTS course is designed for site managers who have responsibilities for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering staff. It covers all relevant legislation affecting safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture within the workforce.
