Health and safety course plan

Health and safety trainingHealth and safety at work means Occupational Health and Safety. These are conditions that must necessarily be observed whenever and wherever work is to be done. In schools, too, health and safety must be explained and required to be observed by all students. Do not eat in the laboratory, do not drink chemical solutions, wear safety glasses. And many other examples that may be obvious to most adults, to children it has to be explained from the beginning.

Working adults also need to be aware of current health and safety standards. Even in service industries, accidents can happen if workers do not follow health and safety standards. Someone can burn themselves with a hot drink if it is not left in a safe place. Someone could slip when another person carelessly spills water. If someone throws clippings and unneeded papers thoughtlessly all over the office, they can reach the heated parts of a computer or photocopier and unexpectedly catch fire. No one can expect unfortunate accidents, but if an unfortunate incident has occurred somewhere, it cannot be disregarded in keeping your employees safe.

In industries where specialised skills are required to use advanced tools, such rules will be more elaborate. After all, if one does not use them correctly, one can easily cause serious accidents, injuries and even death from injury with them. You can jam yourself with a saw, burn yourself with a soldering iron, injure yourself with a screwdriver. Average people, who do not use tools on a daily basis, may not even notice which part of the machine needs special attention. Someone may wear long earrings every day, or have their hair untied, and won't have a chance to notice if the machine pulls in their hair or snags an earring - and then it will be too late.

One must do everything possible to avoid accidents. Even before one is trained how to use tools - from a screwdriver to a welder to a crane - one must first know what not to do with them (which could put anyone in danger). The rules of what not to do must be clear and understood by all concerned.

Also, before starting to work already in a specific place, it is necessary to go through an initial health and safety training. This explains the rules and norms at a particular location that every employee must be aware of. It must be clear who is allowed in the areas in question based on the tools that someone qualified and trained to use. What you can and cannot bring into the workshop, how you have to be dressed (special protective clothing), what you should not wear (for example, long earrings or chains that could catch on something) to avoid the risk of an accident, and much more. Without such initial training, you should not even enter the workplace with specialised tools. One wrong move and, for even a trivial reason, a serious accident could occur, crippling someone forever.

Safe workplace

In addition to initial health and safety training, periodic training is also important. These are focused on the specific activities performed. On market standards, on how best to maintain health and safety when performing a specific activity, using specific tools. Such training is organised from time to time and it is important to keep in mind when you last attended such training and when the next training is taking place. In comparison, initial health and safety training must be organised each time before a new employee can start work. During periodic health and safety training, attention is paid to the most common and recent risks, situations that have occurred over a period of time. It is necessary to assess what should be done to avoid such dangerous situations, to prevent them from happening (introduction of new operating rules, additional protective equipment, auxiliary staff or others) or at least how to behave if it would be too late and such an accident occurred (first aid, evacuation procedures.
