Improve skills or risk consequences - 28-06-2007
The Health and Safety Executive has urged employters to improve their skills and competencies or risk the consequences of not doing so.

In a bid to tackle the culture of "unwise risk taking" new Vocational Qualifications (VQs) have been developed to help increase the skills base and competencies.

The need to increase skills and competencies is vital because workers are more likely to be involved in an accident that could result in a fatality, when they take risks unknowingly.

The people most at risk are those who are working alone. They are inclined to take risks in order to get the job done. It's vitally important that the level of hazard awareness is improved so that people can take suitable precautions, to reduce the risk of accidents and protect their health.

"The new VQs will focus on practical health and safety issues and deal with the major sources of accidents and ill health. Workers who undertake these qualifications should be able to recognise dangerous practices and be able to take appropriate action to safeguard themselves and others.
