Staff Complete BOHS Training

Staff Complete BOHS Training, RVT Group

As part of RVT's commitment to learning and development, staff regularly attend training courses in pursuit of professional excellence.

One such course recently attended by a few team members was the BOHS 'Basic Principles in Occupational Hygiene'. The aim of the course was to be able to recognise, evaluate and control hazards that can be faced in the workplace.

Holding true to our vision of a world where the impact of site work on life and health is effectively zero, we acknowledge that this is equally as important in a more typical office environment as well.

Hazards are present across all industries. It's the duty of all employers to ensure their staff are equipped with the knowledge to recognise and manage potential dangers in their work setting. This not only benefits each employee, but also the employer by helping to reduce work-related illness and injury which can prove costly.

According to figures from the HSE:

  • Over 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work
  • Over one million people are injured
  • Over two million suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work


Training our staff, arming them with this knowledge, we hope to minimise the risk of health and safety hazards causing harm. And in doing so, we maintain a happy, healthy and productive team.

We advise all companies to follow suit.
