There are always going to be risks in any workplace in any industry, many of these risks can cause serious accidents that have a knock on effect to your business. Training staff and keeping staff training up to date is a fundamental part of empowering your team with the knowledge and understanding they need to ensure a safe, productive environment.
Every employer has a duty to protect their employees and report all accidents and incidents within the workplace. When working with machinery and vehicles, like forklift trucks, or working at heights, it is vital that all staff are trained to the highest standard and that they each understand the safety principles, risks and have a thorough knowledge of the equipment or vehicles they are responsible for or working with.
The aim of training is to educate everyone involved on how to keep themselves and others safe, no matter what equipment they are using. Thorough training is not only a legal requirement in most instances, it is there to reduce the risks to all staff, and without it there would be far more accidents in the workplace.
