All employees are required to receive health and safety training to ensure that they are able to identify common hazards in the workplace and how to deal with them. They must also understand the purpose of risk assessments and the part they play in developing the controls that are put in place to protect themselves and others. The Health and Safety Awareness course we have developed provides an interactive experience for trainees to learn the basic elements of health, safety and environment in the workplace and is ideally suited as initial training, the basis for other specific training in a blended approach or as a refresher training course.
Aims of the Course
Health and Safety Awareness aims to give employees the essential information they need to work safely. The course follows a nationally recognised syllabus where at the end of the training trainees will be able to:
- Understand their responsibilities for health, safety and environment issues in the workplace.
- Recognise the part they can play in securing the health and safety of themselves and others.
- Improve the safety performance of the organisation by recognising hazards and risks and knowing what to do.
- Ensure accidents and incidents are reported and take part in finding solutions to prevent a reoccurrence.
- Recognise common hazards in the workplace and know what to do to prevent accidents and ill-health.
- Appreciate the importance of safe behaviours and how a positive health, safety and environment culture affects an organisations performance.
Who is it for?
The course has been developed for all levels of employees in an organisation with the aim of enabling employees to undertake their jobs safely by achieving greater health and safety awareness.
How is it Delivered?
Health and Safety Awareness can be delivered to trainees either online or through a computer network which individuals can access using their own workstation or laptop. To ensure that all of your employees are trained and educated to the same level, we are able to integrate this course into a learning management system that is SCORM compliant, for no extra cost. All trainees also have the option of saving their progress and complete the course over multiple sessions, allowing them to learn at their own pace. This course is followed by an assessment once all units are completed, to test that trainees have familiarised themselves with the key aspects of the training.
Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved
The Praxis42 Digital Platform SHINE is our advanced learning management system, is an invaluable part of our eLearning modules. It allows you to easily view and manage employee training records and course completions, doing away with the issue of compliance record keeping. All certificates can be printed once trainees have successfully passed the end assessment and you can easily provide proof of compliance to enforcing agencies should you need to do so.
The Health and Safety Awareness course from Praxis42 helps employees stay safe and healthy at work by helping them recognise common hazards, how to act in certain situations, what is expected of them, what can cause harm at work and how they can contribute positively to improve the performance of the organisation.
