Health and Safety

Health and Safety

All employers must adhere to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the act is the prime piece of legalisation used to cover every employee at work to keep them free from harm. 

The employer should be visited by a Health and Safety Executive  who will do checks all around the working environment, this is to ensure the employer has done their best to make sure all hazards have been made safe or at least been made clear with signage or through health and safety meetings.

As an apprentice you are entitled to the following:

  • A safe, healthy and supportive environment, wherever learning takes place
  • An induction to health and safety when starting your learning or training and at each new placement
  • Information on any risks associated with the learning programme
  • Training on health and safety issues and appropriate use of equipment

You can contribute to making sure your workplace is safe and supportive by:

  • Raising any concerns you have about your learning with your workplace suppervisor
  • Knowing who to speak to and what to do if you see any trip and slip hazards or any other form of hazard in your workplace
  • Obey all Health and Safety rules and measures
  • Reducing fire risks by obeying all non-smoking rules, ensuring all fire doors are locked and free from obstructions

RM Training will not place any Apprentices in to an unsafe working environment, before placing apprentices we have a form that must be filled out by the employer to ensure the environment is safe.

If you are not happy with your work environment please contact us and we will resolve the issue.
