It’s coming up to the end of another academic year and business’s attention will be turning towards apprenticeships.
As their first employer, it’s important that businesses get it right at work – particularly when it comes to safety.
Statistics show that 18 to 24-year-olds are more likely to have a serious accident at work than their older colleagues.
Dangers come in all forms but the lack of experience and training in health and safety is high on the list and that’s something you can help prevent.
Employers need to acknowledge the training and support needed for young people, and all new starters. What are the risks associated with the business and how can you prevent them? What is the latest advice from the Health and Safety Executive and how can you pass this onto apprentices and new recruits?
Failure to look at this serious issue could leave your business vulnerable not only to prosecution but could also impact on loss of business and productivity.
Advice is simple, make sure young new starters have access to all of the latest training and guidance on health and safety to make sure they are well protected in the workplace.
Not only that, but businesses can also look to insurance to protect themselves when disaster strikes.< BACK
