Training is essential to the achievements of a business.

Training is essential to the achievements of a business.  Perhaps its most positive benefit is better employees.  A company develop the potential of an employee, and part of the way a company encourages improvement is through training.  Often, good training is just as important as a good benefits package for an employee.

Health and safety training is essential in order to stay compliant with current regulations. Walker Health and Safety Services can offer various health and safety training in Shropshire and the West Midlands.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires you to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of your employees.

This is expanded by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, e.g. when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating.

You need to assess the risks to your employees while they are at work and to any other people who may be affected by the way you conduct your business. This is so that you can identify the measures you need to take to comply with health and safety law.

We offer a full training program, contact us with your requirements for a tailor made program to suit your business.

Some companies who wished they had trained their staff. Please don’t fall into the mistakes they have made along the way.
