Health and safety is an important aspect of any workplace, including apprenticeships. As an apprentice, you should be aware of your rights and responsibilities when it comes to health and safety.

Here are some tips to help you stay safe and healthy during your apprenticeship:

  • Know your rights: You have the right to a safe and healthy workplace. Your employer should provide you with the necessary training, equipment, and supervision to help you do your job safely.

  • Follow safety procedures: Always follow the safety procedures set out by your employer. This includes wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE) required for your job and reporting any hazards or incidents to your supervisor.

  • Ask questions: If you are unsure about anything related to health and safety, ask your supervisor or trainer for clarification. It's better to be safe than sorry.

  • Take care of your physical and mental health: Apprenticeships can be physically and mentally demanding. Make sure you eat well, stay hydrated, and take breaks when you need to. Don't hesitate to talk to someone if you are struggling with your mental health.

  • Report any incidents or injuries: If you are injured or witness an incident, report it to your supervisor immediately. This will help prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.

Remember, health and safety is everyone's responsibility. By following these tips, you can help create a safe and healthy workplace for yourself and your colleagues.
