Health and safety resources
There are a variety of publications on the subject of training and a substantial industry has been built on the basis that employers feel that they do not have the necessary expertise or resources to deliver essential training within their organisations. There are far fewer publications available on the subject of occupational health and safety training.
Our aim in producing Jordan Publishing Health and Safety Training Solutions has been to produce a publication that can be used to deliver effective health and safety training to the widest possible audience. Our background as a mixture of health and safety inspectors, consultants and health and safety advisors has provided us with far too many examples of how a lack of health and safety training can have a disastrous effect on both individuals and their employers. It is our firm belief that employers wish to ensure that they have a trained and competent workforce, yet are often discouraged by the apparent sheer enormity of the task. The obvious solution to many would be to send employees on a ‘health and safety course’ or where there are widely known training requirements such as the need to obtain a ‘qualified first aiders course’ then employees will be sent on the requisite training course. Training, in these circumstances, does not come cheap for the employer, and this can help to form the impression that training all employees in all aspects of health and safety will be cost-prohibitive.
This publication sets out to provide a unique solution to these potential problems, by providing a substantial selection of training solutions for both employees and managers. The vast majority of these could be delivered in-house, thus saving the employer time and money. The information is set out in a user-friendly format with clear divisions between different training solutions.
The publication, being in looseleaf format, will be updated regularly to take account of changes in practice, guidance, legislation and theory.

This manual is a unique contribution to the many published works on health and safety management. Health and safety professionals often repeat the need for people to be properly trained and qualified when fulfilling their duties and advising managers. Sometimes that need is not reciprocated when it comes to professional training standards. It is a dichotomy: should people be professional trainers to deliver the safety message; or be qualified in a health and safety discipline? Both routes to effective training have their advantages. It is clear that the legal requirements to provide health and safety training are numerous and fairly extensive. All too often it is found in an accident investigation that inadequate training has been given. Sometimes it is found that there is a complete absence of such training.
To deliver effective training people need to know their subject well – often they need to know about particular workplace procedures, and they need to deliver and monitor the training professionally. Stopping at the point of delivery of the information does not equate to effective learning. Improved knowledge, understanding of the subject, and a change of behaviour lead to a reduced accident and ill health risk. There is much, much more that health and safety trainers need to do to ensure they fulfil the legal requirements imposed on employers to provide adequate and relevant health and safety training. This manual fills an important need in the profession to understand how to set up, deliver, assess, evaluate and record health and safety training.
For many years I have been involved in setting the syllabi, educating and assessing professionals and managers at different levels. This has been achieved through working as a senior professional within industry, various roles in IOSH including President in 1990, chairing NEBOSH and authoring text books.
There has been a steep change in the profession over my working life and particularly during the last thirty years or so since the Health and Safety Act first came into force in 1975. My own experience of training 2000 managers in one large multi-national group and the dramatic effect that improved knowledge had on health and safety performance have taught me that improving knowledge gives managers the tools to deal with health and safety effectively.
The extent and quality of the guidance information now available is second to none worldwide. This book helps both professionals and managers to access the guidance which is relevant to their subject or industry, through extensive lists of the documents available. It is a very welcome resource which should be on all health and safety managers’ bookshelves.
The large range of Safety Talks are immensely valuable to the busy manager. They help to deliver simple information at the point where most accidents and ill health are experienced. The intention to expand this by updates over time will truly produce a small library of training materials ready for use and invaluable for people at the coal face of safety whether in the office, warehouse, factory or out on the road.
I am pleased to have been asked to contribute to such an extensive and valuable publication and I am sure it will be of immense value in improving the quality and effectiveness of health and safety training and reduce the toll of accidents and ill health still evident in work places throughout the UK.
There can be no let up in striving for better safety and health standards through improved education, training and understanding of the problem.
