Why complete health and safety training?

In general, health and safety laws apply to all businesses, no matter how small. As an employer, or a self-employed person, you are responsible for health and safety in your business. You need to take the right precautions to reduce the risks of workplace dangers and provide a safe working environment.

Each year over 200 people are killed at work and many are injured or suffer ill health. The most common causes of serious injury at work are slips and trips and falls from height. There are health conditions that can be caused or made worse by work and working environments, including cancer, asthma, skin complaints, stress and musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain.

Providing health & safety information and training helps you to:

  • Ensure you or your employees are not injured or made ill by the work they do;

  • Develop a positive health & safety culture, where safe & healthy working becomes second nature to everyone;

  • Find out how you could manage health and safety better;

  • Meet your legal duty to protect the health & safety of your employees.

Effective training will:

  • Will contribute towards making your employees competent in health & safety;

  • Can help your business avoid the distress that accidents and ill health cause;

  • Can help you avoid the financial costs of accidents & occupational ill health.

The law requires that you provide whatever information, instruction and training is needed to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health & safety of your employees.

Service leavers

For the many thousands of people who leave the armed forces each year, a vocational qualification can be a helpful first step towards a new career.

Service leavers have often gained valuable skills and experience which make them well-suited to a career in health and safety. It’s a profession that is highly valued across many industries such as construction, chemicals and utilities.

Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC)

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) use Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) to sponsor Armed Forces personnel to improve their education and, in particular, to support them through resettlement as they move into civilian life. ELC funding can be used to pay for a range of qualifications. 

The ELC scheme provides financial support for service leavers wishing to undertake recognised qualifications at Level 3 or above. Full information on the ELC scheme, approved courses, eligibility and how to apply can be found on the Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS) website
