The frequency of health and safety training refreshers varies depending on the workplace and job role. However, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to provide ongoing training and instruction to employees to ensure that they can work safely and without risks to their health. Refresher training should be provided when employees start a new job, are exposed to new or increased risks, or when existing skills may have become rusty or need updating.
