Health and safety training in the workplace

As an employer, you’re responsible for ensuring your workers are properly instructed and trained on how to do their work safely.

They must know all relevant health and safety information about their jobs, their workplace, the risks, and how to control the risks.

Training and instruction needs to be easy to understand, even for those whose first language is not English and have additional needs such as literacy and hearing difficulties.

You need to:

  • undertake induction and workplace safety training for new workers
  • train workers for the specific tasks they will have to perform
  • commit to appropriate supervision of workers
  • support regular refresher training.
