      Why is health and safety training important?

      Given the complexity of the purpose, structure and type of activity delivered in healthcare environments, there is a diverse range of potential risks to the health and safety of staff. The law requires employers to provide whatever information, instruction and training is needed to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of its employees.

      Employers are required to provide employees with relevant information on potential risks to their health and safety in the workplace, and how these risks can be minimised. The provision of effective health and safety training will help to avoid the cost and distress that accidents and ill health cause. Of particular importance, is the need to develop a positive health and safety culture where healthy working becomes second nature to everyone. 

      This health, safety and welfare e-learning course was developed to meet the required learning outcomes in the Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) recommendations for health and social care providers.

      Health and safety training - meeting employers' legal obligations

      The Mandatory Training Group's online health, safety and welfare training course helps UK employers and employees alike to fulfil the health and safety legislation. Our health and safety courses provide the essential knowledge and understanding as required by regulatory authorities.

      Additional learning outcomes and practical experience should be added, where appropriate, to take into account the capabilities, knowledge, experience and prior training of workers. Based upon risk assessment, training needs analysis, type of role, location and service need, the learning outcomes stated should be supplemented by specific job and site training as necessary to ensure competence in safe working practices and compliance with legal requirements.

      Employers should ensure that vulnerable workers such as young people at work and learners undertaking work experience receive appropriate training, to protect their health and safety. Managers and supervisors should receive additional health and safety training as appropriate to support them in their role and health and safety responsibilities.
