The 28th April marks World Day for Safety & Health at Work 2019, raising awareness on why health and safety within the workplace should always be of the utmost importance to both employers and employees.
For many, health and safety may seem like a matter of common sense. However with 2.78 million work-related deaths a year and a further 374 million accidents, no business can afford to ignore the importance of taking safety seriously.
Whilst all industries have their own risks, the supply chain has by far some of the highest levels of potential for incidents. From carrying heavy goods to dealing with dangerous machinery, the factory floor can be a dangerous place. This is why, as a group, we place great emphasis on ensuring that our partners take health and safety seriously.
For optimum safety in the workplace, employees should be properly educated and tested regarding health and safety guidelines before even starting their new role. Each industry and role comes with its very own set of hazards, which is why bespoke testing is vital. This ensures protection of both the employee and the employer.
Proman’s bespoke, innovative and thorough health and safety induction solution is something we provide to our clients as standard. Employees can enter the workplace confident that they understand the safety guidelines and will act accordingly if incidents occur, providing greater peace of mind for our partners.
