The global health and safety charity is offering ‘instant access’ health, safety and environmental e-learning courses for employers to purchase and provide for their employees.

The British Safety Council is offering courses in workplace health and safety, general health and safety, display screen equipment, fire safety awareness, manual handling, health and safety for managers and environmental awareness.

Employees can complete the courses in one go or in stages, allowing the individual to learn at their own pace. 

Designed to be interactive and engaging, the courses feature a short multiple-choice test to ensure the individual has understood the information provided. Once the employee has successfully completed the course and test, they are issued with a PDF ‘completion of training’ certificate which they can download and keep.

Employers are also notified when an employee completes a course so they can maintain training records, and can keep track of the e-learning provided to all staff.

John Phillips, Director of Qualifications and Standards at the British Safety Council, says: “E-learning allows employees to study around their working day and at a time and place that suits them, and is a great way for employers to meet their legal obligation to provide suitable health and safety training to employees.

“These new courses will be of particular benefit to small and medium-sized businesses that want to quickly deliver health, safety and environmental training with the minimum of fuss and effort.”
