Safety promotion and training is an important part of an SMS. Safety promotion includes activities to support the implementation and ongoing improvement of your SMS. It can also be a crucial aspect to fostering a positive safety culture in your business.
Safety-related training ensures your employees know what’s required of them and that they have the knowledge, ability, skills and support to work safely. Providing appropriate SMS awareness training to your employees (regardless of their role in the business) gives them a better understanding of your SMS and how they can contribute to the safety goals and objectives within your business.
