About this training

This one day training programme introduces those seeking employment together with new, inexperienced and transferred workers to issues relating to health and safety at work. It will involve interaction with supervisors, co-workers, work areas, and jobs, and especially to health and safety. Training and extra assistance during the initial period of employment is critical, regardless of the age of the employee, as workers are not familiar with the hazards of the job or the workplace.


During an orientation or induction phase, each worker develops the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are necessary to work in a safe and healthy manner. While training (or refresher training) is always important, training should always be provided when employees are:

 

  • transferred to jobs or work areas they are unfamiliar with
  • returning from an extended period away from work
  • who are new to the work force
  • seeking employment to show prospective employers that they appreciate the value of positive health and safety initiatives in the workplace

Not all training can or should be done on the first day. Time the orientation sessions to best match the needs of the workplace and the work done, but be sure all areas are covered. Our one day training is not a replacement for full safety induction training but is designed to give the participants a good grounding in health and safety where further induction training specific to the workplace and job can be carried out on-site.

Duration:
1 day from 09.30hrs to 16.15hrs.

Course Certificate:
Participants who have successfully completed the training will be issued with a NISO certificate of attendance.
There is no assessment but active participation is required.

Course tutors:
Each Workplace Safety Workshop will be delivered by representatives from National Irish Safety Organisation and the BeSMART division of the Health and Safety Authority.
