Every year, hundreds of workers suffer needless injuries and death – while managers face heavy fines and jail sentences, due to inadequate or non-existent rescue training.
During an emergency situation, the casualties often include not only people needing to be rescued but also members of the rescue teams who lack proper training and equipment.
You need proper rescue equipment and people trained to operate it.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure their workplace is safe and that workers are adequately trained to undertake the tasks they are required to perform. Managers at all levels in companies that don’t comply with legislation face heavy personal fines for breaches or negligence.
Our safety training division teaches you how to construct rescue and safety plans and gives your staff the necessary skills to use rescue equipment properly.
Zokal Safety Training is not just theory based – We replicate real-life emergencies and provide hands-on equipment training allowing staff to experience rescuing co-workers first hand.
