FAQs about Health & Safety eLearning Training Courses
What is an eLearning Course?
How do you complete an eLearning course?
Is eLearning an acceptable form of health and safety training?
eLearning provides a powerful form of learning that suits many employees learning styles. It is accepted standalone or as a blended learning framework for many health and safety compliance training courses. Fire safety eLearning courses are among the most popular eLearning offerings due to employers’ ability to roll them out across a spanning workplace, with large numbers of employees, at the click of a button. Employers can use courses like this or others such as manual handling eLearning to contribute to meeting their health and safety legislative requirements.
Higher-level health and safety courses such as the NEBOSH General Certificate, IOSH Managing Safety or IOSH Safety for Executives & Directors courses are accepted in their eLearning form. These courses are ideal for busy employees and managers who are unable to spare large chunks of time out of the office sitting in a classroom learning via the traditional face to face method. Instead, senior managers and others can complete NEBOSH eLearning courses or IOSH eLearning courses at a pace and at times that suit the operational needs of their organisations. eLearning also provides a training method that can help facilitate a positive work-life balance.
There is nothing in health and safety legislation that states a requirement or a preference for a specific training delivery method. However, some clients, employers, contractors, or associations may outline a need for a particular training scheme and delivery method.
Who needs a health and safety eLearning course?
Which health and safety eLearning course is right for me?
The type of health and safety eLearning course most appropriate for you depends on your responsibilities and the hazards and level of risk you are exposed to at work.
When considering responsibilities, first aiders within an organisation would benefit from undertaking a first aid eLearning course as part of their initial, requalification or update training. Additionally, DSE users or assessors can obtain crucial information on how to execute a DSE risk assessment by completing the DSE assessor eLearning course. Finally, suppose your employer requires you to assume the responsibility of the fire warden. In that case, the fire warden eLearning course will provide you with clarity on the role and expectations placed on you in the event of a workplace evacuation.
When considering hazards and risks, short courses such as manual handling, fire safety, asbestos legionella or COSHH eLearning courses can be valuable training to raise awareness. Delegates can then gain an insight into how employers control the health and safety risks presented by hazards.
IOSH eLearning courses cater perfectly to employees across the entire workplace spectrum. The IOSH working safety eLearning course provides an excellent introduction to health and safety for entry-level employees with no managerial responsibilities. For supervisors and mid-managers, the IOSH Managing Safely eLearning is ideal. It clarifies health and safety managerial responsibilities and guides how best to manage risk using a health and safety management system. For top-level employees such as senior management team members, directors and CEOs, the IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors eLearning course is excellent for clarifying responsibilities, liability and the duty of care owed to those under their direction in the workplace.
