Employers must ensure that they provide the right information, instruction and training for staff so they can carry out the job safely and not put themselves or others at risk of harm.
This begins at their induction when you tell them about welfare facilities, the company rules, fire safety, personal protective equipment and basic health and safety.
You must then decide if they need any further training, for example a food safety qualification or manual handling.
You can send staff to train at an external venue, call us in to train them or do in-house training by using your own experienced staff.
You may decide on something more formal such as the courses on our eLearning portal (click on the links to view the courses.)
