Why is Health and Safety Training Important?
Health and safety in the workplace is important for a number of reasons. The employer and the employee have specific legal duties under current health and safety legislation to provide a safe place of work. Failure to observe these duties could lead to serious moral, legal and financial consequences. Statistics published in 2017/18 by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show 70,062 injuries were reported under RIDDOR and 30.7 million working days were lost due to work-related illness and injury and 144 were killed at work. The financial cost to business and society is also high with an estimated cost of £15 billion in 2016/17.
