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.

Considerations when carrying out health and safety training
You must provide training during working hours and not at the expense of your employees. Special arrangements need to be made for part timers or shift workers.
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.
Like many employers, you may not be in a position to provide this training on your own, in which case you will need competent help. If possible, you should appoint one or more of your employees. However, if there is no one with the relevant knowledge, experience and skills in your organisation who can be relied on to deal effectively with health and safety training, you need to enlist someone from outside. This is where Walker Health and Safety can assist.
