How do we approach electrical safety e-learning training?

Electricity is the lifeblood of modern society, it enhances our quality of life and we are becoming increasingly reliant on it to power tools and devices we use for work and entertainment. However, although electricity has many benefits it can also be a hidden killer as it can’t be seen, felt, smelled or heard until someone comes into contact with it.

This course will start by covering the many benefits electricity brings to society, as well as its key components voltage, current and resistance. It will explain the two main types of electricity, cover UK accident and death statistics, and describe a simple way of remembering the electrical hazards. It then goes on to provide basic instructions about how you could safely help someone you suspect has received an electric shock.

Towards the end of the course it includes an overview of the main standards, guidance and legislation that control the use of electricity in the workplace, and finish off by looking at simple maintenance plans and portable appliance testing including who within an organisation would be best to carry out the various checks.

This course has 5 modules in total and each module concludes with some relevant questions. The pass rate for these questions is 70% and the 5 modules covered are:

How do we approach noise awareness e-learning training?

Noise at work can cause hearing damage that is permanent and disabling. This damage is preventable if the right steps are taken but once your hearing has gone it will not come back. It can also interfere with communications by stopping people from being able to understand or follow conversations and it can make verbal warnings or alarms harder to hear. These issues can lead to further safety risks that put people at risk of injury or even death.

This course will show you how dangerous noise can be in the workplace, and the main safety issues you should be aware of. It will take you through some of the simple science, the main laws that apply and introduce you to noise level limits. It also covers some of the specific health risks and how to avoid them by producing risk assessments, action plans and through the provision of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. It concludes by examining how to provide information and instruction to employees, along with the most professional way to conduct health surveillance of the workforce.

This course has 7 modules in total and each module concludes with some relevant questions. The pass rate for these questions is 70% and the 7 modules covered are:

  • Noise in the Workplace
  • Legislation
  • Health Risks

How do we approach Working at Height Awareness e-learning training?

This course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height.

Please note that this is an awareness course only, if your duties include working at height you will also need further practical training, you can get in touch with us to arrange this.

The term 'work at height' applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches. This is because the crucial thing to understand about work at height is that it’s not how far you climb, but how far you can fall. ‘Falls’ doesn’t just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment fall, that will obviously present an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.

All working at height situations are covered by health and safety legislation. Chief among these is the Work at Height Regulations 2005. These regulations confer legal duties on employers and employees to assess, control and minimise risks and hazards from work at height.

This course covers topics including the dangers of working at height, the regulations, the hierarchy of controls, assessing risk and much more.

This course has 11 modules in total and each module concludes with some relevant questions. The pass rate for these questions is 70% and the 11 modules covered are:

  • Introducing Work at Height
  • The Dangers of Work at Height
  • The Work at Height Regulations
  • Summary of Duty Holder's Responsibilities
  • Employer's Responsibilities
  • The Hierarchy of Control
  • Avoiding Work at Height Wherever Possible
  • Prevent Risk of Falls
  • Minimise Consequences
  • The Risk Assessment
  • Course Summary
