FAQs

The employer is required to provide all new employees with training on how to work safely which should include first aid, and fire safety and evacuation ensuring that they know how to work safely and without risks to health. This will include all aspects of the organisations health and safety policy and training on any specific aspects of their job role where their safety or the safety of others may be at risk.

All staff require basic health and safety training, as above, however more specific training, e.g. working with ladders, should be decided upon by assessing the risks of a job and deciding if the risks can be controlled by providing training.

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