BSC introduces e-learning course for health and safetyPosted on 20/03/2013
In order to help companies teach employees and management about good health and safety practices, the British Safety Council (BSC) has introduced a new e-learning course.
The course will also help to increase understanding of obligations introduced under new legislation on health and safety at work.
Courses can take between two and three hours to complete and feature the ability to create a 'unique personal action plan', following the responses that are given.
The e-learning course is ideal for companies who can not afford the time away from the workplace in order to complete health and safety training in the classroom.
Director of qualifications and standards at BSC John Phillips said: “The course is interactive and engaging, and quizzes are used throughout to test the learner’s knowledge and understanding."
One simple way to ensure health and safety is to make sure that all power tools on site are working correctly, in order to avoid future injuries. Furthermore, hard hats, safety gloves and safety shoes should be checked to make sure existing damage does not compromise a person's future safety.
