Workplace safety is one of the most critical responsibilities of the employer. Several research studies have reported close to 4 million non-fatal workplace injuries every year. It has been proven that non-fatal accidents cost the business more on the long run. By providing safety training which is culture based, the organization can promote a safer workplace and ensure the safety and well being of its employees.

Safety officers training
Businesses are required to employ a competent person to act as a health and safety officer, be it the owner, one or more employee, or an external person. This gives the business owner peace of mind that health and safety requirements are being met, and allows higher management to focus on other targets relating to costs, productivity and profits.
The Role of a Health and Safety Officer
The health and safety officer’s main aim is to prevent accidents, injuries and work-related illnesses in the workplace. Their role is to create and implement health and safety policies in accordance with the latest legislation and to ensure that these policies are implemented by management and employees.
The health and safety officer works very closely with management, as well as health and safety inspectors and trade unions. Depending on the nature of the business, the health and safety officer’s duties could involve safeguarding machinery, fire safety, occupational health, noise, control of hazardous substances, manual handling, working with display screen equipment, and environmental health.
