This Health and Safety Induction course covers typical workplace hazards, such as manual handling, stress, hazardous substances and falls from height. The course looks at what to do if an accident or incident occurs, or if they experience any signs of ill-health. A case-study illustrates the importance of reporting accidents and near misses.
This Health and Safety online course does not attempt to teach staff to carry out risk assessments, but it explains how they can contribute to, and make use of the findings of risk assessments. In particular, examples show how understanding a risk assessment can help you to work more safely.
The course includes story-based scenarios and active learning opportunities. It also emphasises the importance of health (for example work-related ill-health reporting, stress, asbestos awareness) as well as safety. The course reminds learners to find out specific information about the organisation they are working for.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Health and Safety Induction course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation eg, your health and safety policy, all at no extra cost.
