Workplace safety is about being informed and prepared.
As a business, you are responsible for taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of your workplace for your staff and customers. Safe businesses benefit from increased productivity, quality service and ultimately, develop a good reputation. Making safety a priority shows that you care about the wellbeing of your staff and that you are a responsible employer. One of the most effective ways for you as an employer to demonstrate that workplace safety is a priority, is to provide quality training for your employees.
As infection from COVID-19 continues to pose a risk in the UK, all workplaces are responsible for making sure they have taken the correct measures to reduce this risk of infection. Using the most up to date government and public health advice, Mini First Aid has created a range of accredited short courses to help you and your business minimise the risk of spreading infection. We want to help you reassure your employees and customers that you know exactly what to do to keep both children and adults safe.
