Finding the Right Training Provider!

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers have a duty to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 also requires employers to consider the risks to employees, including protecting staff from exposure to reasonably foreseeable violence and aggression.

Employers must:

· Conduct a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk(s)

· Assess the risks associated with violence and aggression

· Record the risks and identify the actions needed
