Beware of cheap health and safety training

Health and safety training needs to be cost effective, but cheap health and safety training can be a false economy. In recent years, a large number of health and safety practitioners have become self-employed trainers, offering cheap safety training with little to no teaching experience. Here at Sterling Safety, and our sister company the BCF Group Limited we have been providing health and safety training for many years, from individuals on open courses right through to bespoke training programmes for multinational corporations. Our course tutors are not only experienced health and safety professionals with a wealth of experience in the industry, they also hold professional teaching qualifications to ensure that they effectively transfer their knowledge to those attending the courses. They know that reading from a textbook or standing up and lecturing all day long is not an effective way of teaching. Combining the necessary information with activities such as group work and lively discussions ensures a delegate's attention remains focused and allows for greater retention of knowledge. This is vital when it comes to exam/assessment time, and is why we have consistently achieved high pass rates for our course attendees.

Open and bepoke health and safety training courses

Having a number of employed trainers means that not only can we run health and safety courses at venues conveniently located around the UK, but we also have the capability to have consultants design and deliver in-house training programmes to companies who require a number of their employees training, or require a bespoke health and safety course which is tailored to their specific requirements and the particular risks and hazards that its workers face. Having a happy and healthy workforce is crucial in improving morale, preventing accidents and reducing staff absence through sickness and ill-health. This means that not only is health and safety training an important legal requirement, but can actually lead to an improvement in the business's operations and performance.

Why is health and safety so important in the workplace?

Health and safety in the workplace is more important now than ever. Click the link below to read why.

With the increase of no-win-no-fee personal injury lawyers, and the increasingly stringent government legislation, it is now more important than ever to make sure that your company has the correct health and safety policies and procedures in place. Failure to do so can result in costly compensation claims if a worker has an accident or becomes ill, as well as the possibility of government fines and penalties, which may be severely damaging for the firm's financial position.

But organisations should not only seek to implement health and safety provisions just to avoid fines and compensation claims. It is also in the best interests of a firm to provide a safe working environment, as minor accidents and illness can lead to staff having to take time off work, along with lower motivation and morale. This will have a negative impact on the firm's output and productivity, which again ultimately leads to the firm losing money... Click here to read more.
