It is a legal requirement for all tasks to be risk assessed and employers with five or more employees are legally obliged to record risk assessments in a written format. Risk assessment training ensures that clients are competent in carrying out and reviewing risk assessments.
COSHH Awareness Training
There is a legal obligation on employers on the storage, handling and use of any substances that may be on their premises. The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations requires employers to ensure that Safety Data Sheets are available for all substances on their premises and that COSHH assessments are carried out for all tasks that use these substances. Compliance with COSHH also requires suitable and sufficient storage of substances. COSHH Awareness Training is available to clients to ensure they are compliant with COSHH.
Manual Handling Training
The Manual Handling Operations Regulations defines manual handling as: “… any transporting or supporting of a load (including the lifting, putting down, pushing,pulling, carrying or moving thereof) by hand or bodily force.” Employees who are required to carry out manual handling tasks should be given adequate training to ensure they are competent to perform these tasks. Manual Handling Training is available to clients who wish to ensure their employees are trained in good manual handling, so as to prevent injuries. It worth noting that 37% of back injuries account for 86,000 employees in UK missing work each day.
Employers have a legal obligation to supervise, monitor and review audits of the workplace, and of employees behaviour. Clients may wish to have training in auditing and audit techniques to better equip them with the necessary tools to become competent auditors, as well as improving corrective action techniques and tracking. Training is carried out by an experienced ISO accredited auditor.
