Working Safely Training

Wurkplace offers Working Safely training courses to UK based businesses including Liverpool, Chester and Wrexham.

Working safely is in the interest and concern of all staff, both employers and employees. Health and safety is one of the few areas where the law places specific duties specifically on employees so a knowledge of where this applies and how to ensure that it is adhered to is vital to protect individuals and businesses. Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people.

The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working to safe systems of work – the physical, mental and financial burden of these accidents can have a huge impact on themselves, their families and their colleagues.

The course covers a wide range of topics including fire safety, asbestos awareness, working at height, COSHH, PPE and electricity. It also covers methods for improving safety performance and methods of protecting the environment.

Target Audience

This course is a great induction course in relation to health and safety as it covers a wide range of topics in some detail. Most of the examples relate to the construction industry so this course is perfect for people starting out working on a site for the first time.

Advantages

As this course covers a wide range of health and safety situations the course provides a strong basis to further build on with more training. ROSPA and IIRSM approval means that this course meets the rigorous standards of this leading industry body. Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.

Further Progression

Other health and Safety courses that cover specific aspects of the candidates role for example if they are likely to be required to work above the ground then Working at Height would be a useful follow up. If they are going to be handling chemicals then the more detailed COSHH course would cover this more thoroughly, and if they are going to be working alone at any point then the Introduction to Personal Safety for Lone Workers course would be a great next step.

Case Study

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. Their continued support has been very helpful in getting our employees fully qualified and trained, and they are always available whenever we need them. We shall continue to work alongside Wurkplace and use their training courses as the business continues to grow.”
