Who benefits from health and safety training?

02 December 2013

 As previously discussed, health and safety is an increasingly important factor for every kind of business. From the more obvious such as construction workers, electricians or chefs to the less obvious shops and offices, every organisation must now take into account health and safety protocol. This results in less accidents, less compensation claims, and can even save the company money. But who can benefit from a certificate such as NEBOSH and why is it worth the investment?

People in authority roles within an organisation such as managers, supervisors and directors can always use health and safety training. By having a more rounded knowledge of potential accidents and how to prevent them, a NEBOSH certificate could make your job easier. Reducing accidents from your team and improving efficiency will not only make the organisation run much smoother but also act as a reflection on you as an authority figure. Fewer outgoing costs due to fewer accidents results in a higher profit, which is always noticed by superiors.

Manual workers also benefit from this training. Increased awareness of how to do a job as safely as possible can increase productivity and decrease the potential for an accident, which could potentially put you out of work for several weeks or months. A health and safety qualification from NEBOSH is also a great addition to any CV. Potential employers will know that not only are you aware of how to act in a responsible and safe manner in the workplace, but also be confident that you are not at risk of becoming involved in an accident due to negligence.

However, the people who attain the certificate are not the only people to benefit. Customers or clients will also profit from a more health and safety conscious work place. Shop customers will be less likely to be hurt due to mistakes made by members of staff, and clients of electricians, construction workers, decorators, plumbers etc. will have peace of mind that the person working on their property is sufficiently qualified and unlikely to hurt themselves or anybody else on site.
