Frequently Asked Questions

Workplace safety training is essential for several reasons:

  • Regulatory compliance (ensures that employers and employees comply with the law and regulations that ensure a safe workplace)
  • Prevention of workplace accidents (workplace accidents can result in injuries or fatalities, which can significantly impact the organisation, employees, and their families; safety training helps prevent workplace accidents by teaching employees about potential hazards and how to avoid them)
  • Cost reduction (workplace accidents can be expensive, both in terms of medical expenses and lost productivity; safety training can help reduce accidents, thereby reducing costs for the organisation)
  • Increased productivity (helps create a safety culture in the workplace, which can improve morale and motivation, thus increasing productivity)
  • Improved reputation (having safety as a priority will help improve their organization’s reputation, which can positively impact their bottom line)
