Why should I attend this course?
As a leader, you must understand the importance of health & safety. Delegates who attend this course will leave with a clearer understanding of just that. The knowledge gained will help to prevent health & safety incidences and therefore improve your businesses productivity and finances.
By learning how to protect your employees, you are reducing absences due to injury and sickness. By reducing employee absence, business continuity and productivity will not be affected by covering absent roles, and you won’t need to to spend vital time and money looking for replacement employees.
A reduction in health & safety incidents also looks great for your business externally, who doesn’t want to have a reputation as a safe business who looks after their employees?
To ensure that you get exactly what you need from the one-day of training, the tutor specifically tailors the content to those attending. The tailored content will give you that transferable value that many other courses won’t.
By training with other delegates, you will also be able to compare your processes to other companies. This will give you an idea of what you need to improve on, or what you are doing well. You can also learn from how other companies conduct their health and safety practices and transfer them into your business.
