Safety induction training in construction site

Construction sites are a place where accidents are just waiting to happen. Especially if your employees don't know the dangers around them.

Before your employees can start working, they need induction training. This ensures they're clued up about their surroundings and the hazards that may exist.

Discover today three reasons why induction training can mean the difference between life and death.

1. Induction training is an important and compulsory part of your safety programme

This training ensures that all employees, external contract workers and visitors to the site behave in a manner that is beneficial to their safety. It teaches them on potential hazards and on site safety measures.

2. Not everyone on a construction site is qualified to handle hazards

There are many different people on the construction site at any given time. They all have different qualifications and roles. Chances are, most of your employees don't know how to operate the machinery on the site. Furthermore, until you tell them, they don't know how to protect themselves from possible danger. This is worse for visitors to your site. Induction training educates them on potential hazards and also, how to behave on a construction site.

3. The smallest thing could have a big impact on safety

Something as tiny as a bolt could be the reason someone dies. Don't believe me? Well if itsn't tored or disposed of the right way, it could get jammed into one your machines. Which could subsequently explode and kill someone.

The opposite is also true. Something tiny can make the biggest difference. Something like knowing when and how to pass scaffolding, could be that fine line between life and death.
