The Importance of Health & Safety Training

There are many reasons why it is important for everyone in the workplace to receive adequate training within their work area.

Financial

Not only can adequate training reduce costs, it can also boost productivity. there are literally thousands of work-related accidents, resulting in more than three days off work are reported to the Health and Safety Authority each year. Not only does this reduce staffing levels it also increases potential claims against the employer. Many of these accidents are preventable by conducting risk assessments and implementing adequate training.

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) requires you to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare of your employees and to manage and conduct your work activities in such a way as to ensure their safety, health and welfare. This requires you to be proactive in managing your safety, health and welfare responsibilities and deal with them in a systematic way. This includes ensuring that all of your employees are fully trained in order to conduct their duties as safely as is reasonably practicable..
