Safety Training

Safety Training for Your Business

 

Occupational Health and Safety is a hot topic for businesses across the world at the moment. With the COVID-19 outbreak, many organisations were forced to adapt. In the case where people could work from home, they were given the means to do so, limiting human contact to minimise the potential spread of the virus among co-workers. The majority of countries around the world are encouraging safer workplaces and working from home, while others are lifting lockdowns and quarantines for the sake of their economic infrastructures. No matter in which country your business operates, you can benefit from Occupational Health and Safety training, especially with regards to COVID-19 in the workplace.

 

How Can I Ensure the Safety of My Employees Within Their Intended Workspace?

 

Businesses operating in the industrial sector are aware of the importance of creating a safe and healthy work environment for their employees. Operating heavy machines, vehicle fleets, and workbenches can be dangerous when approached carelessly and without the accommodating training. This concept translates to an office space, where there are several crucial elements to Occupational Health and Safety that might be overlooked. On top of that, human contact must be minimised in the modern workplace, with regulatory tests to ensure that your employees are healthy. Therefore, we offer a comprehensive approach to Occupational Health and Safety training through our E-Learning portal, allowing your organisation to be trained remotely.

 

WWISE can also assist in the development and implementation of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System in accordance with the ISO 45001:2018 Standard. This standard provides a framework on which we can build an OHSMS to suit your organisation. Such a Management System will give you the tools and controls to efficiently manage and monitor Health and Safety elements within your workplace. The framework can be adapted to businesses of any size and within any industry, ensuring that the introduction of an OHSMS will be beneficial to your business as opposed to being disruptive and detrimental. We also offer regulatory maintenance to keep your OHSMS up to date and compliant with the latest ISO regulations and requirements.

 

Occupational Health and Safety Short Courses on Our E-Learning Portal

 

Our Induction to Retail short course covers a variety of Health and Safety elements within a retail outlet. Aspects such as Fire Safety, manual handling, and employee responsibilities are addressed to train your employees on what is expected from them and how they can keep the workplace safe and under control. Fire Safety is commonly overlooked within the workplace, along with the knowledge on how to contain a fire or extinguish it efficiently. This course covers such elements to empower your employees to be aware of any hazards and possible dangerous situations and how to handle such a situation when it arises.

We also offer an Induction for Office and Reception short course. Once again, many elements of Occupational Health and Safety are overlooked within an office space. Therefore, this short course covers elements such as Fire Safety and DSE/Workstation Safety to raise awareness and train your employees accordingly. We also offer a short course specifically on Display Screen Equipment (DSE) and Workstations. This short course is ideal for people who are consistently working on Visual Display Units (VDUs) such as smart device screens and computer monitors. People are commonly overlooking the health risks of sitting in a chair and staring at a computer monitor for an entire day, as it can have dramatic effects on your body. This course creates awareness for your employees to inform them on how to correctly approach their daily routines within an office workspace.

 

First Aid and Fire Safety have their own individual short courses. Our First Aid theory course is designed as an awareness guide for basic First Aid within the workplace. Our Fire Safety course serves as an ideal way of basic Fire Safety training for any business or organisation. Both these short courses are ideal for businesses that want to create a common level of awareness regarding Occupational Health and Safety within their organisation.
