Safety Rep Training
All employers with 20 or more employees must appoint a safety rep. They must monitor and report on OHS conditions. For shops & offices, you need at least one trained safety rep for every 100 employees. All other workplaces must have one rep for every 50 workers. This amount is the minimum you must have. In some cases, it will be better to appoint more. Safety reps can be of great benefit to the company.
First Aid Training
Any workplace with more than ten employees must legally have a first aider. The first aider must be readily available at all times. As with safety rep training, you have the same ratio. Shops and offices need 1 to 100. Other workplaces will be 1 to 50. In most cases, we suggest that you train slightly more than the minimum. You need to cover every shift and department.
Your fire team plays a crucial role in your safety planning. They have a lot of responsibility to ensure the safety of your workplace. They can ensure that fire extinguishers are in working order. They can extinguish a fire that can cause loss of your assets. Your fire team will be able to assist your employees during emergency evacuations and other scenarios.
It is vital to training every new and old employee on your safety program. You can assume that your employees understand safety sign and processes.
