Learn HQ, the eLearning & Learning Specialists, Launch New Health & Safety eLearning Course!

Learn HQ has created a new and improved Health and Safety eLearning course to help employers train their staff efficiently and quickly!

Online PR News – 20-April-2012 – Cirencester, Gloucestershire – Learn HQ Ltd have launched a new and improved eLearning course for Health and Safety Essentials. Whatever sort of business you have, it is important for every member of staff to understand your health and safety protocol. All work exposes people to hazards, yet despite the many precautions set up to deter incidents, there are still over 600,000 workplace injuries every year, as well as 1.8 million cases of ill health caused or made worse by work. It is not only your social responsibility to pay attention to health and safety protocol, but it also makes good business sense and is just as important as the achievement of any other key business objective.

This training can be done 'on the job', or by using one of the many classroom courses on the market. However, and especially in the current economic climate, employers do not have the time or the resources to train their staff to such a high standard. Learn HQ has developed an eLearning solution to this issue! The Health and Safety Essentials course allows employers to adequately train their staff, while concentrating on managing their own business.

This original course has now been updated and improved! With enjoyable quizzes and challenges, users are continually challenged on the subject material, in a vibrant and innovative way. This interactive eLearning course provides all the necessary material you require to train your staff in the principles of Health and Safety, with modules that include:

- Introduction to Fire Safety: Is fire prevention effective? Can more be done to avoid fires at work? Are people prepared for a real emergency? This module promotes a proactive approach to fire prevention and emergency procedures.

- Display Screen Equipment & Office Ergonomics: What exactly is an ergonomically designed office and why is it important? This module will help to create an inviting workspace and prevent unnecessary sick days.

- Manual Handling and Risk Assessment: Injuries can occur when moving boxes, office furniture and other day to day lifting. Poor handling can be easily avoided by following the guidelines laid out in this module.

- Slips, Trips & Falls: This module promotes awareness of everyday hazards, allowing all participants to take responsibility for their own work environment.

Health and Safety Essentials also includes modules on Electrical Safety, Hazardous Substances and Accident Reporting.

Health and Safety Essentials is easy to use and simple to navigate, making it easily accessible for those with basic or no computer knowledge. Moreover, the course also includes an assessment to ensure that your staff fully understand the principles of food hygiene and safety. A printed certificate is then available upon successful completion of the course. The course can be completed within an hour at the work place, or even outside of working hours, which gives employers the option to train their staff quickly and efficiently. Additionally, if you purchase a site license for the course, staff can undertake this training at one fixed cost, and are able to train future members of staff.

Learn HQ Ltd Managing Director Paul Hurrell stated, "At Learn HQ we understand that {training} can be a costly and time consuming undertaking especially for smaller businesses with low levels of staffing and tight margins. To enable businesses to meet their training requirements whilst still concentrating on running their business, Learn HQ have developed an eLearning solution to this issue as a site license and at a low level cost of only £99.99."
