Training policy

Training policy

Due to the risk of accidents, the need to ensure staff are adequately trained doesn’t stop with the induction process. Therefore, it’s advisable to ensure that you have a comprehensive policy in place.

Training policy

Providing an acceptable level of information, instruction and training doesn’t stop after a new employee has been inducted. Instead, it is an ongoing process with its frequency and content dependent on numerous factors. For this reason, you should have a Training Policy in place, which can outline how you approach and provide training to your existing staff.

Training procedures

In common with our other policies, the training policy begins with a general statement and then moves on to outline the legal position. However, the most important part is section three, which looks at procedures. This has been devised with accident minimisation in mind and outlines the different circumstances when training will be provided. These include induction, briefings to temps and other groups that may occasionally work on your premises, manual handling and training required to operate specialist machinery. Due to staff reticence in attending health and safety briefing, the last section looks at an employee’s duty to attend any such training that you’ve arranged for them.
