All businesses have a legal obligation to ensure that their employees are protected from harm in the workplace. This online Health and Safety course helps you to fulfil legal requirements for providing workplace training; it also promotes staff awareness that can lead to greater efficiency, lower insurance costs and a reduction in lost time.

This online training has been approved by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

The benefits of using online training in the workplace include:

  • Cost Reductions e.g. travel fees
  • Man hour reduction (training only takes as long as the learner needs)
  • Self-printed certificate for evidence of course completion
  • Staff can start training immediately
  • Helping your business maintain a green status by reducing your carbon footprint

The Health and Safety in the Workplace module is available as a stand-alone course, however, for a limited time only we are offering it as part of our Online Safety Training Pack with our Fire Safety and Evacuation module for only £40 + VAT.

All of our online training can be paused by the user and picked up again when they like, allowing freedom to complete the course in a time that fits around their workload. By allowing them to work at their own pace you can have peace of mind that everybody has received adequate information, without feeling the need to compete with their peers.

If you are responsible for training a large number of staff, you may also be interested in hearing more about our Learning Management System (LMS) Our well established system allows you to easily track and record who has received and completed the training, while reducing the need for administration and paperwork.

What is Covered?

Organisations will experience a number of benefits from providing a safe and healthy workplace; as mentioned above in 2008/9 29.3 million days were lost overall due to work related health and safety issues. To help reduce these numbers, our course has been tailored to address your legal workplace training requirements, as well as key risk assessment areas. If you require additional training depending on your specific sector, you can view our additional courses including, Manual Handling, Asbestos Awareness and Risk Assessment
