Employees who are new to an organisation or who are young people suffer more accidents and ill health than the rest of the working population. Induction training and orientation in the workplace is essential to protect employees. Failing to train employees in basic health and safety is an offence and may lead to prosecution, increased civil claims, poor employee relations and poor performance in the organisation. The Health and Safety Induction course we have developed provides an interactive experience for trainees to learn the basic elements of health, safety and environment in the workplace, how they can be involved in risk assessments and what to look out for at work. The course is ideally suited as part of an ‘Induction’ package and also as a start point for employees to attend other specific courses.

Aims of the Course

Health and Safety Induction aims to give employees the essential information they need to work safely. The course follows a nationally recognised syllabus where at the end of the training trainees will be able to:

  • Understand their responsibilities for health, safety and environment issues in the workplace
  • Recognise the part they can play in securing the health and safety of themselves and others
  • Improve the safety performance of the organisation by recognising hazards and risks and knowing what to do
  • Ensure accidents and incidents are reported and take part in finding solutions to prevent a re-occurrence
  • Recognise common hazards in the workplace and know what to do to prevent accidents
  • Appreciate the importance of safe behaviours and how a positive health, safety and environment

Who is it for?
