If any staff training has been completed even if it is a short Toolbox Talk you should ask your staff to sign and
confirm that they have attended and understood what they have been told.
If there is an accident/incident you are likely to face questions from an HSE or local authority inspector and the first question will be “whether anyone was involved in the incident and whether they had any health and safety or skills training?”.
This will identify if the incident was caused by staff not knowing the safety rules, being unsure of the correct way to operate a machine, not knowing what personal protective clothing was required with chemicals etc.
Remember to keep all documentation and training records undertake for your staff in case you are visited by the HSE or local authority inspector.
The appropriate forms are available for Hawksafe clients. Contact us if you would like any more information.
