On Wednesday 20th May, the Customer Service Project group received Health and Safety training from Vicky Woodward, Practice Manager for Sphere RHSM. The training was interactive, informative and highlighted the importance of Health and Safety within a workplace. Topics included:
- Why Health and Safety is important
- Hazards, risks and workplace precautions
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Safety management system
- Reporting near misses, incidents and accidents
Robert Freeman who is currently gaining work experience at Homebase commented “The health and safety advice is good to know so no one gets hurt in the workplace.”
Benjamin Ter-Berg added “It was highly informative especially on topics which were new to me, for example lighting and temperature in a workplace.”
Towards the end of the day the 8 young people completed an assessment for an IOSH Level 1 Certificate in Health and Safety, a qualification which is recognised and valued by many employers.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Vicky and also to Steve who helped to organise the day.
