Wurkplace offers Personal Protective Equipment training courses to UK based businesses including Liverpool, Chester and Wrexham.
In the UK there are approximately 144 fatalities in the workplace and around 621,000 non-fatal injuries every year. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a vital role in managing Health & Safety risks. However, historical data shows many workers suffering injury were not wearing this clothing.
This course will show how wearing PPE plays a crucial role in preventing and reducing fatalities, injuries and diseases that would otherwise occur in the workplace. It includes details of a wide range of PPE options, examines the legislation and regulations that govern the responsibilities of employers, employees and suppliers, and provides a real-life case study showing the law in action.
The course will also cover risk assessment and the role it plays in the selection and use of PPE along with discussing other hazard control measures that can be implemented. Finally, the course will move on to how to use, fit and wear PPE and understand its physical and theoretical limitations.

This course is primarily aimed at people that work in industries such as construction where they are likely to need to use a wide range of PPE on a daily basis. However, there are many other areas of work where PPE is required such as factories, warehouses, window cleaners, healthcare workers, beauticians and many others.
One of the key things this course is intended to do is to teach people why they should use the PPE that is supplied to them and it is some of these other work areas where this message will be most effective.
Candidates understanding how and why they should use PPE will mean they are more likely to use it consistently and correctly throughout their work. This has the advantage of reducing their risk of injury.
Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.
Many of our other Health and Safety courses compliment this one include Working at Height, Working Safely and Asbestos Awareness.

A very successful construction company named Robert Sheppard Construction were interested in trying our online training courses after being a current retainer client for a couple of months.
Robert Sheppard Construction is a family owned company which has now expanded into 4 different sectors; construction, plant hire, housing development and print. The company was established in 2010 and pride themselves on delivering high quality construction projects to clients all across the North West.
Within our retainer, along with the 24/7 service support, you are allocated 5 free online training courses. After using our HR service for several months, (due to our great service) they were happy to join our Payroll service and have recently started using our Health and Safety Online Training Courses.
Because Robert Sheppard Construction is a construction company, they required training in multiple areas, such as manual handling, abrasive wheels, working at heights and more. Therefore, we worked with Robert Sheppard to create the perfect training package with enough courses to cover all of the employees that required training.
Due to the fact that we provide access to our HR system, we were able to easily navigate and find the employees that needed the said training. From there, we were able to allocate courses easily by using their details to give them a license.
Our relationship with Robert Sheppard Construction has started off very strong and we look forward to working with them for years to come.
“Wurkplace has helped us out in many different sectors of the company and we are already much better off because of this.
