Employers cannot underestimate the vital role health and safety courses play in safeguarding a workforce. Training is a legal requirement that aims to protect employees, contractors, customers, and the public who a business's operations may impact. Employers who have a disregard for their legislative responsibilities face the likelihood of fines and, in some instances, prison sentences. Companies also run the risk of having to pay out compensation claims through the Civil legal system following an employee's injury, illness, or death. Indirect consequences include damaged reputations, lower employee retention rates and overall profitability.
Workplace health and safety control measures, of which training is a crucial component, are essential because human injury, illness or death is morally unacceptable. Therefore, employers must inform employees of the hazards the workplace presents and instruct them on how to operate safely to ensure that the level of risk presented is as low as is reasonably practicable.
