What is important in occupational safety training?

safety trainingHagen im Bremischen (Germany) | Occupational safety is on everyone’s lips due to the corona crisis and the currentl company hygiene requirements. But what other content should an occupational safety training course classically include? This will be answered in the following overview.

Ergonomic working

Whether sitting at a desk in the office, putting goods away in the supermarket or screwing car parts onto the conveyor belt – questions and aspects of the most optimal ergonomic work should always be the main focus. This is the only way to ensure that the workforce can carry out the job as desired for as long as possible in their industry and does not have to retrain for a completely different job.

Prevention of violence

Especially in the often still hierarchically structured world of work, it is important to prevent any form of violence. No matter whether it is a physical confrontation, sexual harassment or anything else. All this must be prevented and fixed mechanisms for dealing with reported incidents must be developed in order to be prepared for an emergency.

Accident Prevention

This is a sub-theme that many people will already have in their sights. While the importance of this sub-sector varies from sector to sector, it should nevertheless be present everywhere and not only in the chemical sector, where dangerous substances are handled in great numbers.
