Traffic Marshall Banksman Courses In London
Health and safety in the workplace is of vital importance to everyone from the board of directors right through to each and every employee whether sedentary at a desk or manually working indoors or outdoors. As an employer, businesses have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for their employees, to protect them from harm while on their premises and to provide proper training and safe working practices.
For example, in any role where you are expected to lift anything of any weight – even boxes of leaflets for sales representatives right up to labourers working with bags of plaster and plasterboard, it is the responsibility of an employer to ensure you have undergone safe manual handling training. Not only will the risk of sustaining an injury be drastically reduced but this demonstrates a commitment of the business to health and wellbeing of employees in their charge.
When working on a site there is the potential to come into contact with vehicles.
