PRACTICAL advice for employers about how to prevent workplace accidents will be offered in a short course being organised by Fenland District Council next month.
The course will cover the five steps needed to complete an effective risk assessment. One section will focus specifically on preventing falls from height, including ladders, which are among the major causes of deaths and major injuries at work, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
The course will be held at Fenland District Council’s offices at Melbourne Avenue, March, on Tuesday, May 14 (9.15am-12.30pm). Places cost £38.50.
Similar training courses are regularly held by FDC to help businesses with their health and safety management. Run by experienced environmental health staff, they provide employers and employees with essential knowledge and understanding of good health and safety practices and how this reduces business risks.
Under current legislation employers have a statutory duty to provide their staff with suitable health and safety training, instruction and supervision.
