Health & Safety Training
If you work on buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000, Asbestos may well be present. If this is the case then you and your employees have a legal requirement to carry out Asbestos Awareness Training in order to help you avoid the risks and comply with Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
COSHH stands for ‘Control of Substances Hazardous to Health’ and under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, employers need to either prevent or reduce their workers’ exposure to substances that are hazardous to their health. Our online training program helps you understand how to safely use and control the hazard whilst using hazardous substances.
Fire Awareness training
Our online Fire Awareness course is designed to give your staff the knowledge and confidence to act safely in the event of a fire, and to aid fire prevention in your work place. It’s ideal for all employees, and we do our best to make the course stimulating and informative.
Although a lot can be said for common sense in the case of a fire, it isn’t always obvious what you should do. Our Fire Awareness training gives learners the skills and understanding needed for competent fire safety.
Food Safety and Hygiene Level 1 & 2
Regulations require that everyone who handles food in the food industry requires training. This training must be appropriate to their job role, which is what they do with food. It does not depend on how many hours they work. It is quite important to understand the recommendations regarding the level of training required.
These training program provides a good understanding of food hazards and food poisoning, with clear explanations of the ways food can become contaminated; personal hygiene; cleanliness in the food preparation area; safe storage and waste disposal.
Lone Working In & Out of the Workplace
Lone workers are unable to ask more experienced colleagues for help, so extra training may be appropriate. They need to be sufficiently experienced and fully understand the risks and precautions involved in their work and the location that they work in. Employers should set the limits to what can and cannot be done while working alone. They should ensure workers are competent to deal with the requirements of the job and are able to recognise when to seek advice from elsewhere.
This Manual Handling Training Course will provide your employees with guidance and instruction on the correct lifting procedures and some handy hints on the do’s and don’ts of Manual Handling. Upon successful completion of the course & assessment you can print off your Manual Handling Certificate immediately.
More than one third of all injuries reported each year to the HSE involve Manual Handling. The Online Manual Handling Course cover pulling, pushing, lifting, lowering and carrying any object without the use of external aids. The most serious injuries are often caused in the simplest way but many can be prevented by following the correct Manual Handling techniques.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, you have a responsibility to ensure your staff are as safe as possible. This may involve looking at alternative work methods. At the very least it will involve providing Manual Handling Training where appropriate and when relevant to the employee’s job role.
Working at Height
