Understand the importance of working safely

Because everyone at work deserves to understand about safety and health – that’s why we train up to 179,000 people each year.

A day can make such a difference… Working Safely is a one-day course for people at any level, in any sector, that will boost business performance and staff motivation. How? Simply by showing how everyone can enhance their safety, health and wellbeing through everyday behaviours. This is a completely different approach to safety and health training: a high-impact programme designed to be fun and inclusive. No jargon, no legalese – just inspirational learning that’s enjoyable, stimulating and effective.

And a final word

Working Safely has really helped me engage with the guys who work here. And it’s introduced safety on a personal level. They get to grips with the fact that people actually do care about it. And it’s also given me insight as to what the guys face on a day-to-day basis. Some delegates are quite sceptical to start with and then you see the perception change through the day. I’d say, 99% leave happy that they’ve been on the course.” Andy Hall, Health and Safety Advisor, DFDS Seaways PLC, Immingham, UK
