Training and Development Courses and Qualifications by The BCF Group

Health and Safety Training and Testing

The ultimate aim of providing health and safety training to workers is to give them the knowledge and awareness of the risks that they may encounter whilst at work, and how to work safely in a way which minimises the chance of an accident or incident occurring that could cause serious injury or death to themselves or others.

This means that it is imperative to ensure that not only do those delegates on the course pay attention to what is being taught, but also that the information and knowledge being imparted is being understood and retained, which is where testing and assessments come in. Simply sitting through the course and not taking anything in will not achieve the desired aim of making the workplace safer. By testing course attendees at the end of the training, it will demonstrate and prove that the individual has understood the information and so will then be able to use it when back in the workplace.

Many accredited heath and safety qualifications including the NEBOSH General Certificate, IOSH Managing Safely and CITB SMSTS and SSSTS Certificates all have assessments and/or exams at the end to ensure that only those who have retained a sufficient amount of information obtain the qualification.

Whilst assessments at the end are fine at that moment in time, people can and do forget things, and fall back into bad and unsafe working practices. Regular health and safety refresher training along with periodic testing can ensure that workers have the correct safety information and procedures at the forefront of their mind whilst they perform their workplace activities.
