Combining Health and Safety Training with Job-Specific Training

Many workers will require some form of job-specific training when they begin a new job at a company or switch roles within an existing one. This will teach them what to do in their new task, as well as providing instructions on how to operate machinery. This is especially important in many industries where equipment is used such as the construction industry where workers will be using a variety of equipment which can pose a danger to their wellbeing such as pneumatic drills and excavators. For these construction workers job-specific training can be combined with qualifications like the NEBOSH Construction Certificate, SMSTS or SSSTS certificates to enable them to identify hazards and work more safely on site.

Job-specific training should be combined with health and safety training as the two nearly always go hand-in-hand. This is because the health and safety of the operator and those nearby in the vicinity, whether it is fellow workers or members of the public, will depend upon the correct and safe operation of the equipment at all times, as well as knowing the emergency procedures and learning information such as the location of emergency stop buttons. The two are so intertwined that health and safety training can often be provided at the same time as job-specific training provided that the person providing the training is competent in both.
