Wurkplace offers Workplace Health and Safety training courses to UK based businesses including Liverpool, Chester and Wrexham.
This course covers general health and safety issues that apply to a wide range of types of businesses and sectors, from office and retail environments to workshops and factories. The wide range of topics covered makes this a great course to act as an introduction to health and safety in the workplace that can then be built on with more detailed courses that cover specific hazards that employees might come into contact with in specific workplaces. This makes it a useful part of the induction process.
By the end of this course the candidate will have an understanding of health and safety legislation and definitions of common terms associated with health and safety. This is followed up with some statistics outlining the most common causes of accidents in the workplace. They will also understand good practice in relation to electricity, display screen equipment and the use of safe manual handling techniques. The course also introduces best practice associated with the control of substances hazardous to health regulations, the importance of using appropriate PPE as instructed and the most common procedures to follow in the event of a fire.
The course contains specific case studies that outline the seriousness of health and safety in the workplace and potential consequences if there is a health and safety breach. Along with all this it introduces the concept of risk assessment and concludes with the actions that should be taken in the event of an emergency situation occurring.

The course has a very wide audience as it applies to a wide range of sectors and can be included as part of the induction process in most businesses, especially when combined with other more specific health and safety courses that apply to the candidates role.
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. 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.
Other health and Safety courses that cover specific aspects of the candidates role for example if they work a lot with computers then the DSE Awareness course would be useful to them. 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.
Duration: 45 minutes (Note: This is based on the amount of video content shown and is rounded off. It does not account in any way for loading time or thinking time on the questions).

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.
