FAQs

The employer is required to provide all new employees with health and safety training. The employer must ensure that employees know how to work safely and without risks to health. This should include all aspects of an organisations health and safety policy, and training on specific aspects of their job where their safety or others safety may be at risk.

All staff require basic health and safety training, however more specific training, e.g., Working at Height or Manual Handling should be decided upon by assessing the risks of a job and deciding if the risks can be controlled via training.

Reference:

Both the employer and contractor have responsibilities under health and safety law. The employer must ensure that contractors and self-employed individuals have the required knowledge of health and safety law and the company’s health and safety policy so that they work safely.
