The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires you to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of your employees.
This is expanded by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which identify situations where health and safety training is particularly important, eg when people start work, on exposure to new or increased risks and where existing skills may have become rusty or need updating.
Like many employers, you may not be in a position to provide this training on your own, in which case you will need competent help.
What about self-employed people?
If a person working under your control and direction is treated as self-employed
for tax and national insurance purposes, they may nevertheless be treated as your
employee for health and safety purposes. You need, therefore, to take appropriate
action to protect them.
If you do not wish to employ workers on this basis, you should seek legal advice.
Ultimately, each case can only be decided on its own merits by a court of law.
WHO NEEDS HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING?
Whether you are an employer or self-employed, are you sure that you’re
up to date with how to identify the hazards and control the risks from your work? Do you know how to get help – from your trade association, your local Chamber of Commerce, or your health and safety enforcing authority?
Do you know what you have to do about consulting your employees, or their representatives, on health andsafety issues? If not, you would probably benefit from some training.
YOUR MANAGERS AND SUPERVISORS DO!
If you employ managers or supervisors they need to know what you expect from them in terms of health and safety, and how you expect them to deliver.
They need to understand your health and safety policy, where they fit in, and how you want health and safety managed.
They may also need training in the specific hazards of your processes and how you expect the risks to be controlled.
YOUR EMPLOYEES DO!
Everyone who works for you, including self-employed people, needs to know how to work safely and without risks to health. Like your supervisors, they need to know about your health and safety policy, your
arrangements for implementing it, and the part they play.
They also need to know how they can raise any health and safety concerns with you.
