Never Underestimate Health And Safety In The Workplace
The statistics on workplace accidents are startling, with over 200 people killed each year in the workplace. By providing quality health and safety training, employers can help reduce this figure.
By law employers are responsible for providing safe and healthy workplace conditions for all of their employees, and ensure that they are fully aware of the importance of health and safety in the workplace and of the necessity of following good working practices. The key areas to be fully trained on in terms of health and safety are health and hygiene at work and accidents and how to prevent them.
Another area of health and safety training that is required is manual handling, which is not only important in protecting the well-being of staff but in preventing absence from work due to damage from incorrect handling, and, in the worse case scenario, in providing due diligence in the event of an ever increasing number of workplace claims.
Fire prevention is another area that is absolutely crucial, and records of what training is provided are required and regularly checked by local authorities and fire services.
How to deal with hazardous substances is another health & safety are that is mandatory to provide to all employees.
Finally, risk assessments are a necessary part of any business these days, and have a key role in highlighting and addressing any health and safety issues that may not have been fully considered.
As well as ensuring that all new staff receive adequate health and safety training, it is important for all employers to remember to continue to refresh their existing teams.
It is worth noting also that legislation changes on an ongoing basis as do the potential hazards and subsequent requirements in any operation so it is necessary that the whole team are working to the same core standards to ensure a safe and happy working environment where health and safety comes as standard.

Why Time and Attendance Software is So Complex
When the first computerised time and attendance system named Weeney Clocker was produced by Baur Automation in Johannesburg South Africa and became commercially available in 1992, many companies not only saved a lot of paperwork but also labor time on processing enormous calculations to produce each employee’s timesheet that will eventually fill-up the payroll.
The Weeney Clocker made its goodbye in 2005 but it opened a new chapter that gave an opportunity for software companies to create time and attendance software of their own. These companies continue to showcase their ability to unlock and improve every aspect of what the Weeney Clocker left undiscovered.
From punching the time cards into the bundy clock, all you need to do now is to swipe your ID or touch the sensor with your finger to indicate your login and logout time. From manual calculations, everything now is automated and all you need is the power of your fingertips; less labor time, less headache for the payroll department. And since time and attendance deals with figures, accuracy is crucial – an issue that is often neglected by manual calculations.
And from that point, every time and attendance software became more and more advance but also more and more complex.
Time and attendance software is easy to use because of its simple interface but in the wake of its simplicity lies the complexity of how it works. It’s a good thing that you should learn this before its implementation.
So, why time and attendance complex? Here are the reasons;
Sql database manipulation, LAN and WAN networking principles, terminal hardware communication and advanced payroll and award interpretation; these are the foundation of an effective time and attendance system, one can not work without the other.
Although you can leave this to the I.T, department, it is better that you also somehow understand the basic components of time and attendance system and how they interact with each other not only for emergency but also for security.
