Learn about manual handling, conflict resolution, working at height, fire safety, accidents and incidents and occupational health with retail specific scenarios.
This Retail Induction course provides a thorough grounding for those at work in a retail environment, focusing not only on the basic principles of manual handling, fire safety, and accidents at work, but also the very real issues of working at height, driving at work,workstation safety (DSE), homeworking, drugs, alcohol & substance misuse etc.
The level of detail is appropriate to a retail environment and addresses familiar tasks/activities. This one hour course provides employees with an awareness of the hazards that may face them day to day within their retail based tasks and activities.
The course addresses activities not always recognised such as working at height (ie. low level use of step ladders) and manual handling.
It is important for an employer to address these issues at a level that is appropriate for the environment, for example; a person standing on a work chair or using a small set of steps is 'working at height'; a person unloading a delivery of equipment or clothing is manual handling.
It is important that as an employer you have provided information, instruction and training to a level that is suitable and sufficient for the level of risk.
