The EssentialSkillz Health and Safety Induction Online Training course introduces the importance of good health and safety practices in the workplace. The course introduces the responsibilities for employers and employees from the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Learners are reminded that they should take responsibility for the safety of themselves and others. This includes the need to comply with procedures, participate in training and to report accidents, incidents, ill-health or hazards.
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 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.

Generate 10 random questions from a bank of 20 to test your user’s retention and understanding of key content.
As training administrator, you can configure the passing score that users need to complete the course. Set your own grade boundaries to ensure your training complies with the standards set out by your organisation.
The course is suitable for employees of all levels and is particularly suited to new employees who are required to take health and safety induction training at the start of their employment. It should be combined with a site specific induction which covers the local hazards and control measures.
