Employees who are new to an organisation or who are young people suffer more accidents and ill health than the rest of the working population. Induction training and orientation in the workplace is essential to protect employees. Failing to train employees in basic health and safety is an offence and may lead to prosecution, increased civil claims, poor employee relations and poor performance in the organisation. The Health and Safety Induction – Lower Risk Environments course we have developed provides an interactive experience for trainees to learn the basic elements of health, safety and environment in the workplace, how they can be involved in risk assessments and what to look out for at work. The course is ideally suited as part of an ‘Induction’ package in a lower risk environment and also as a start point for employees to attend other specific courses.

Aims of the Course

Health and Safety Induction – Lower Risk Environments aims to give employees the essential information they need to work safely in a lower risk environment such those found in retailing , hospitality, banking, insurance, legal and offices for example. 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 re-occurrence
  • Recognise common hazards in the workplace and know what to do to prevent accidents
  • Appreciate the importance of safe behaviours and how a positive health, safety and environment
Who is it for?

The course has been developed for all levels of employees entering an organisation and starting their induction process in a low risk environment. The aim is to enable employees to undertake their jobs safely and reduce the heightened risk that new and young employees face.

How is it Delivered?

Health and Safety Induction – Lower Risk Environments can be delivered online or through a computer network to each trainee at their desktop or laptop. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. The training can be completed at the employees own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness and compliance with the organisation’s legal responsibilities. At the end of the training the trainee will complete an assessment.

Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved

An invaluable feature of Praxis42 eLearning modules is our learning management system called SHINE, our Digital Platform. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end assessment successfully passed.

Course Summary

The Health and Safety Induction – Lower Risk Environments 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.
