Carpenters face many risks in the construction industry, including falls from height, slips, trips, and falls. Trips are a high-risk area for carpenters, as there are often trailing leads, toolboxes, screw boxes, and a selection of tools and battery chargers dotted around the work area. There are occupational hazards from inadvertently disturbing asbestos, working with chemicals and wood dust, hearing loss, and hand-arm vibration risks from certain power tools. Carpenters are at risk of cuts, grazes, and amputations from hand and power tools, as well as strike injuries to the eyes, face, and body from objects ejected by a tool's moving parts. Handling materials, working in confined spaces, or carrying out repetitive tasks can cause musculoskeletal complaints, and dermatitis can be standard from using adhesives, silicones, and solvents. In short, carpenters are at a higher risk of injury than many other trades due to the amount of power tools used and the versatility of the work.

If you are an employer with a workforce of five or more individuals, you are legally obligated to have a Health and Safety policy. Moreover, it is essential to carry out risk and COSHH assessments to ensure your work environment is safe. While method statements are not a legal requirement, they are crucial if you seek work with principal contractors or CDM sites. Failing to provide method statements may negatively impact your chances of securing the job.

A Company Health and Safety Policy: If you are an employer with a workforce of five or more individuals, you are legally obligated to have a Health and Safety policy. Moreover, it is essential to carry out risk and COSHH assessments to ensure your work environment is safe. While method statements are not a legal requirement, they are crucial if you seek work with principal contractors or CDM sites. Failing to provide method statements may negatively impact your chances of securing the job.

Risk assessments: Every task must be completed before an employee carries out any work. They are conducted to discover potential hazards and, if necessary, introduce control measures to eliminate or reduce the risk to an acceptable level.

Method statements: Method statements don’t have to list every job stage because many fitments come with their method statement. For example, if a carpenter fitted a lock, he would fit it per the manufacturer's instructions. The manufacturer's instructions are, in effect, a method statement.

COSHH assessments: COSHH assessments are a legal requirement for any substance used in the workplace. They must inform people of the composition, the product hazards for the user and the environment, fire fighting measures, and first aid measures.

For several years now, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has recognised the effectiveness of online training and considered it as one of the most time-efficient options for many workforces. One of the main benefits of online training is that employees can take a course at their own pace and convenience. Unlike a traditional classroom setting, where all relevant staff members have to be present simultaneously, online training allows individuals to learn and progress at their own pace. This makes it an ideal option for busy workforces looking to upskill their staff while maintaining productivity.

Some relevant online training courses for carpenters available from HSEDocs include:

  • Manual Handling
  • Asbestos Awareness
  • Work at Height
  • Slips, Trips and Falls

Carpenters require comprehensive training in four essential courses to master their craft. However, training for carpenters primarily involves repetition, instilling positive attitudes, and disseminating information on newly introduced working practices. To accomplish this, there are several ways to impart knowledge, such as verbal communication, the distribution of safety fliers, the posting of notices on notice boards or work areas, the dissemination of new method statements, risk assessments, and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) assessments. A toolbox talk can also be conducted to convey the message about any potential risks to the individuals who perform the work. The most crucial aspect of any training is ensuring that the message is communicated effectively and that all individuals know the potential risks involved.
