In part three of our four-part blog series, we take a look at how hazardous substances are ingested through the body. It sounds pretty simple – we swallow them right? It’s actually a little more complicated than that. Let’s have a look.

Almost there, and this is the last active step you’ll take when it comes to rolling out your health and safety training. Today we’re talking evaluation. And why is it so important?
We’re now halfway through unpacking the process of rolling out your workplace safety training, and it’s time to move on to how to develop your training materials.
Risk management is usually the responsibility of risk managers/professionals in separate business units working with different risk management systems.

In the second of our blogs on rolling out HSE training in the workplace, we focus on the adult learning principles you’ll need to adopt for the training to be effective. The workers you want to train are adults, and adults share certain characteristics that make training more effective for them (or less effective if you ignore the characteristics). If your training recognises and respects these adult learning principles, it is likely to be more effective. If your training disregards these principles, you’re wasting training money.
|We should always, always take safety seriously, but safety information can be both informative and entertaining. Now that we’ve got your attention, take a look at these nine safety facts that seem crazy, but are in fact 100% true.|
Your workplace is ticking along, everyone has undergone the required health and safety training at some point, and it appears that everyone understands how to prevent and minimise risk. So there’s nothing more for you to do – right? Well, no actually.
As any mechanic worth his salt will tell you, maintenance is an ongoing, essential requirement to ensure things keep running smoothly.
