The one important factor that both employees and employers tend to forget is- workplace safety feature. Employers are legally bound to provide safety for all employees while they are in the workplace. The slightest of negligence might prove fatal and legal actions might follow the tragedy. Therefore, the only way to avert such mishaps is to follow safety norms and give adequate training for employees with regard to health and safety in the workplace. NEBOSH, OSHA and IOSH are some of the globally recognised agencies providing certified safety trainingcourses. They provide courses through regional institutes in many countries.
There are many institutions in India providing health and safety training for organisations and its employees. Not all of these courses are certified by the above-mentioned globally recognised agencies. Almost all courses are designed to cater to specific safety needs of different organizations and industries.
Construction sites are highly prone to untoward incidents owing to the lack of safety. Safety training makes construction workers aware about the safety hazards and we give them valuable tips to avoid such incidents. Fire and Safety training courses are mushrooming in every nook and cranny of our cities but their certificates have no validity unless it is approved by a recognised agency.Safety and health training courses enable employees to identify hazards at the workplace and deal with them. These courses train them to maintain high-level safety culture at work place, transforming them into health and safety vigilant employees.
