Why Onsite Safety Training is Important

Workplace Safety | January 28, 2021

Whether you have a temporary jobsite or a permanent facility that your team works in, it is a great idea to get onsite safety training. Safety training can keep your employees from harm and protect you as an employer, so it is important to know who to call in order to get started. At United Scaffold Supply, our partnership with YSafety has enabled us to be able to offer comprehensive onsite safety training to our clients in a variety of delivery systems.

Why is Onsite Safety Training Important?

There are many different ways to prepare your workplace or jobsite for safety, and the best system for your needs will depend on a variety of factors, including the type of work being done, the equipment being used, the size of your operation, and much more. Having a customized training course offered at your facility or jobsite can help to keep your team educated and protected. Some of the best reasons to get onsite safety training include:

Personnel Protection

The most valuable asset of any business is its people. By properly training your employees, you can be more certain of their safe conduct throughout their workdays. This will help to ensure that your employees are able to perform their jobs efficiently and at the highest level of performance without fear for their safety. By protecting your employees, you can also be sure that there will be a lower employee turnover, meaning you spend less time recruiting new personnel.

Protection of Property

Although keeping employees and bystanders safe is always the number one priority of safety training, it can also help to show employees how to keep your business’ property and assets from being damaged.

Save Money

By preventing employee turnover and keeping your property assets safe, you can save a lot of money, making onsite safety training a worthwhile investment. Safety training can also help prevent accidents, making lawsuits less likely.

Improve Preparedness

Onsite safety training is a great way to discover potential safety hazards on and around the jobsite. It can help to educate you and your employees on what kind of first aid and medical equipment should be available to respond to accidents if they occur, and improve the culture of preparedness in your workplace.
