More about Management of Workplace Safety Training Courses

Safety Management in the Workplace

Health and safety in the workplace refers to the physical and emotional well-being of employees while working within an organisation. Indiscriminate to physical locations, health and safety applies to all work-related behaviours, whether on or off-site. In the workplace, the safety of all employees and staff is of the utmost importance. By ensuring that employees are able to perform their professional responsibilities in a safe and stable environment, organisations can reap considerable rewards in terms of financial benefit, morale and loyalty.

The Benefits of Workplace Safety

Understanding the importance of workplace safety is something every business should be aware of. Without such knowledge, employees may be exposed to preventative work related pain and suffering. In turn, businesses are subjected to unnecessary expenses and employee turnover.

Physical security in the workplace translates into large savings for an organisation on the long term. By avoiding accidents, organisations can both improve employees’ well-being, happiness and willingness to work, all while reducing the costs of employee compensation and fines from governing bodies. Alertness for safety in the workplace can also communicate to employees that their employer is acting in their best interest and in turn, result in maximised employee morale and loyalty to the organisation.

Regulations in Workplace Safety in the UK


In the United Kingdom, workplace safety and its management is largely regulated by governing bodies which set the standards and provide training in the relevant areas of workplace health and safety. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) is the primary body which issues standard regulations which companies must adhere to in order to maintain an appropriate level of safety for their employees. Other institutions such as IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health), NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) and City & Guilds then offer and issue a number of training programmes, qualifications and accreditations to companies and professionals seeking recognition of compliance. Findcourses also cater to Irish standards which may slightly differ, with a number courses in Dublin which will suit all requirements. Your organisation may also need to schedule asbestos awareness courses accredited by UKATA.

As a key factor in employee satisfaction, productivity and well-being, it is important that workplace safety management is delegated within an organisation. Typically, this role can fall to manager, supervisors or team leaders and in the case of larger organisations, a position may be dedicated solely to workplace safety management.
