What Does Health and Safety Training Look Like?

We will cover a range of Health and Safety issues. Our course instructors will typically tailor the training in relation to the specific workplace sector, but in general, you can expect to receive training in:

Employees should remain vigilant of potential hazards that may cause slips and trips within the workplace. These hazards might include liquid spills, fallen obstacles or anything that blocks the path and presents itself as a potential tripping hazard.

Employees should know how to protect themselves when lifting heavy equipment. They will be taught how to lift with their legs, whilst keeping their back straight in order to avoid potential back strain and injury.

Regardless of the nature of work, employees should be taught how to recognise the signs of fatigue and stress within themselves. Stress and fatigue present a huge health and safety risk as it could cause employees to make mistakes within their role or cause them mental and physical anguish.

If a work environment requires employees to come into contact with harmful gases or chemicals, they should be given comprehensive training to protect themselves, this includes the use of PPE (personal protective equipment) such as gloves, goggles, aprons, etc.

Employees who may come into contact with electricity or water need to be aware of the potential issues that may arise. They should receive proper training for protecting themselves, their colleagues and possibly customers.


All employees, regardless of their nature of work, should understand where the emergency exits are located and what they should do in the case of an emergency that requires evacuation.

We also offer online Health and Safety training in order to provide businesses with greater flexibility in how they deliver their training to employees. This allows for larger cohorts of trainees and can be a great asset for your onboarding process.
