Understanding health and safety in general, and for your specific industry, is a vital part of running any business, and if you have a large amount of employees, it is important to train leaders in how to create, maintain and analyse health and safety protocol to ensure that the necessary precautions are in place to prevent injury or illness in the workplace.

Why is an understanding of health and safety important in the workplace?
