Why is Refresher Health and Safety Training Important?
Providing workers and employees with health and safety training can help them to stay safe in the workplace. However, the immeasurable number of risks and potential dangers to their health and well-being means that there is a lot of information to take in.
This makes it unlikely that a delegate on a safety training course will take in and remember every single piece of information imparted to them. Even if they were somehow able to do this, as time goes by they are likely to forget some of it and begin to slip into bad practices.
It may be the case that since they received the training there have been changes to the workplace or the activities the person performs at work, meaning that some parts of the training will no longer be relevant. In some circumstances it may even be detrimental and place the worker in greater danger, for example if a change in workplace layout means that previous evacuation procedures and escape routes will now trap a worker rather than allowing them to exit a building.
