Is There Such Thing as An Accident?

How many accidents can be prevented? Why did 1.7 million people in the UK suffer from work related illnesses in the year 2020-2021? Anxiety and depression were a high proportion of this figure but given the years span across the coronavirus lockdowns, that might not be surprising. The shift in lifestyle was difficult for many to deal with – taking away a vital sense of community that benefits our mental health. But figures also show that a third of this figure incurred musculoskeletal problems. The course we provide for first aid at work in Derby and other areas in Staffordshire doesn’t just teach attendees how to deal with accidents but also how to prevent them.

Prevent Preventable Accidents

Some stringent people believe accidents never happen. Most people believe this holds people to a higher standard than what might be reasonable, especially given the fact everybody has free will and we need to be conscious of the decisions we are making. Even upper management with the fate of their business at stake acknowledge that sometimes, everybody makes mistakes. What our course for first aid at work in Derby helps to drive home is that accidents can be prevented and their impact on workflow lessened by swift and effective responses. It builds the confidence of the attendee as they know they will be equipped with the power to respond without high anxiety and with the right actions in place.

Act Now – Act Fast

Don’t wait until a major accident happens in your workplace – empower your team today. The only thing that builds confidence effectively is lived experience. When you know you have dealt with a problem that inspires nervousness beforehand, even in a trained environment, you can spring into action when it really matters.

Minimise Staff Sickness with HSA

Health and safety shouldn’t be shrugged at. It might seem like a ‘boring’ topic on the surface, since most people look at only the stereotype of innocuous rules being drawn up by men in suits for the fun of arbitrary admin, but the reality is very different. Health and safety legislation is put in place to protect your business from financial and reputational damage, your employees from incurring injury and workflow from being interrupted by unforeseen accidents. Whether you are looking for engaging training courses on HSA in Stafford or a surrounding area, Acadame are a great place to turn for a fresh new approach to the topic.

Musculoskeletal Disorders

In 2017, stress took over from musculoskeletal disorders as being the UK’s biggest work-related illness. Health and safety measures can be partially thanked for the apparent decrease in musculoskeletal disorders, however there were still thousands of accidents at work occurring that could have been avoided. These numbers are echoed in more recent years but 2017 marks a significant turning point with regards to work-related illnesses and highlights how important having health and safety aware staff is to sustain consistent workflow is at your business.

Specialist Courses

We believe staff training courses should be fun, interactive, and memorable in order to make an impact. Rather than box-ticking, courses such as HSA in Stafford are designed to make your employees think about its contents while they return to their daily duties. All courses are bespoke to your workplace or industry because we can specialise in something as specific as ladder training or we can offer you a slightly more generalised course as appropriate. The necessity of having health and safety conscious employees is highly important to minimising staff absences due to a work-related illness.
