Trained Staff are our futureWestminster Compliance | 24/11/2017
As we move into the future and markets become more competitive, businesses will need to further their competitive edge. Having the right staff is essential and they can be that competitive edge, so having them trained and qualified to work in your business is a way of keeping one step ahead of your competitors. We need trained staff so that we can show that we show their quality, their qualifications and their skills to our potential markets. Clients will gain further confidence when they can clearly see staff are competent.
In the world of health and safety much revolves around the word “competent”. The HSE defines competence as “the combination of training, skills, experience and knowledge that a person has and their ability to perform a task safely”. Every business must prove that it can ensure the right competences in its workforce. Qualifications and training records are sure-fire evidence that someone is qualified to do a particular job. After all anyone who drives a vehicle for a company must show the company their driving licence.
For those looking to train their staff in ways of avoiding accidents and ensuring a healthier, safer (and usually happier) workplace then you should look to our e-Learning academy on our website www.westminstercompliance.co.uk. Our twenty two low cost, interactive, certified on line training courses are a great way to upskill your staff. Successful candidates get an ROSPA approved training certificate (for the majority of the courses) which is easy to print out. Best of all there is a free trial available for each course.
Westminster Compliance was established to provide a more personal, proactive health and safety consultancy that would keep businesses working and compliant with ever-changing legislation.
Our presentations and training are interesting and fun because we want our clients to buy into health and safety, and definitely not to see it as a boring, unnecessary nuisance. We know that our best service is provided to small and medium sized organisations and have developed a system that works in most industries.
We stick with straightforward language, keeping away from jargon, and do not make ridiculous promises. Most importantly, we realise that we are working with human beings.
