About this course

This short course is for anyone who works in a workshop.

It’s all about working safely, looking at why accidents happen and how they can be prevented.

General workshop safety training is vital to ensuring that your staff follow best practices and remain safe in the workshop. No two workshops are the same, each with different hazards and machinery, this programme concentrates on general safety awareness, safe working habits and safe operating procedures.

In our General Workshop Safety Training course, we consider specific hazards that may be found in a workshop, such as dangerous equipment and hazardous substances. As not all hazards are relevant to everyone, these are optional – the information is provided as a pointer to further training that may be needed. For each type of hazard, it explains who needs to know about that particular type of hazard and what the dangers are.

If you work in a workshop you may also be interested in our PPE Training and/or our Abrasive Wheel Safety Training.
