CITB Training Is Important For Employee Safety

Author : Rohit Chhibber

Physical safety and well-being of employees is a very important matter of consideration for any organization. Very often, some companies do not take it as seriously as they should. It is very important for the employees to be aware of actions to be taken during emergency situations and they should clearly understand the hazards that they could potentially face. In the construction industry, CITB training to each and every employee is considered as mandatory.

Many training institutions today offer this safety course as well, as many others pertaining to industry safety. The CITB course mentioned above is offered for people who are associated with civil engineering. Professionals in this field seek this course, because being certified for safety practices by CITB increases their market values in the field of construction.
Another important course which is related to the safety and general of employees is the NEBOSH course, which can be taken by people from any field. That is because it is a general course, and does not cater to any particular industry. This course educates you on how to avoid physical risks at workplaces, and how to deal with them, once you are confronted with them.

By going through the CITB training, you gain a lot of general skills that help you go about your day to day life more efficiently, which is apart from safety at your workplaces. Firstly, the course educates you on the possible risks on-site, and it teaches you about how to be safe and avoid physical injuries. You are also given training on first-aid, and also trained on how to administer it to your coworkers if they get injured.

Other than that, CITB and similar courses also teach you about potential long term health hazards that are associated with your occupation, and how to deal with them. Plumbing and electrical training, environmental safety, and communication are other aspects of these courses. Remember that this course is quite important for those individuals specializing in the field of civil engineering and maintenance.

The NEBOSH course, being field neutral is what most people opt for. The good news is that more and more people are becoming aware of the need to be educated on safety and emergency situations, and the number of people undergoing such safety courses is increasing each year. Dozens of institutes today assist you with NEBOSH training, and help you get qualified.

There are other similar courses conducted by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and TechIOSH, and they are basically meant for those in technical fields. Look for industry specific safety courses before choosing the general courses such as NEBOSH.
