legionella online training

There are some medical conditions, diseases and health concerns which are such high risk that they have their own legislation. Legionnaires Disease is one such concern as the risks it poses can be devastating and it is within the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 that specific guidelines are laid down for the management of Legionella. This legislation was further updated in 2001 by the HSE. The changes in 2001, known as L8, state explicitly that companies and building owners are legally obliged to manage legionella.

Our legionella online training is for employers and staff. It gives them the knowledge to identify the danger of legionella and how to risk assess for the bacteria, as well as managing and controlling it. Our legionella management course is available through our network of distributors.

What is Legionella and Why should you Worry about it?

Legionella bacteria lives in natural water systems but usually it poses no threat in this environment. Legionella becomes a problem when it grows in purpose-built systems where water temperatures are kept high. Systems such as hot and cold water systems, spa pools and cooling towers can be high risk. If you are not aware and do not understand the risks legionella poses then it isn’t managed correctly then an outbreak of Legionnaires disease could be your fault.

Managing and risk assessing your workplace for legionella is essential to avoid the chance of an outbreak which can be devastating and can even be fatal.

VideoTile provide interactive video based training courses and our Legionella Online Training is no different. We offer a Legionella Management course which helps learners recognise and respond to risk sources of the bacteria. It also goes over implementation and management techniques to limit the risk of Legionnaires Disease as much as possible.

Our extensive range of video-based online training courses cover many areas of health and safety. They help businesses work safely, compliantly and within the law.

Offering training services is a lucrative business choice and at VideoTile we specialise in the creation of interactive, engaging video based e-learning for training professionals and providers. Our range of online training options is structured and designed to suit each of our individual clients and we work to design bespoke online training tools to help businesses prosper and grow.

Bespoke Learning Management Systems

As specialists in video we use our expertise and unique production methods to create fast, effective and high quality online training courses. We bring together many different styles of content in a way which suits our clients and delivers the knowledge and learning in the most effective way. Our training videos and online training courses can include:

  • Animated presenters with personalities
  • Animated scenarios and roleplays
  • Quiz style questions

This combination allows for an engaging and interesting learning experience. It also stimulates the learner and ensures the essential training is easily and effectively digested.

Video for Better Results and Better Learning

Animated and interactive online training ensures learners are able to fully engage and get some enjoyment from the process. This is in addition to the essential knowledge needed to “pass” the course and achieve a good level of training in any area.

Video online training and e-learning offers an individual experience and it allows the learner to focus on their training. This can be harder in a group training environment where there is just one trainer to several learners. Our online training courses are available in many different subject areas. They are also complete with accreditation or approval from official bodies in each area. We design courses in the health and safety sector, in business skills and in other areas too.

health and social care training

The care sector contributes an estimated £40.4bn per annum to the English economy. It is a sector with a huge number of employees, many of whom come from varied backgrounds and are not necessarily trained in health and social care. Investing in adequate training is essential for all companies in this sector. VideoTile is proud to offer approved online care training.

Our interactive video-based care training  is suitable for health and social care professionals and those working in similar care environments. All of our VideoTile courses are exclusively available through our distribution partner network. They ensure businesses have access to approved health and social care e-learning.

We have a wide range of distribution partners who work with health and social care organisations across the country. Our courses allow these organisations to quickly and easily get their staff up to speed and working legally. Below is just a small sample of our range of courses suitable for this sector.

VideoTile Health and Social Care E-Learning Courses

Our range of health and social care training courses includes:

Safeguarding Adults and Children

These courses are aimed at people who work in a position which means they have a duty of care for those in need of support and care. It is also relevant for those who come into contact with said individuals. Our courses are suitable for both paid employees and volunteers. Working in a position where you have a duty of care for adults or children means you need to be adequately trained to manage this position. You also need to feel confident in safeguarding those you support. Adequate training must be in place so that the people supported are adequately cared for.

Infection Control

Understanding and knowing how to act to prevent the spread of infection is key in care environments. Hygiene and personal care are core elements of many job roles. Our Infection Control courses help through defining infection prevention and control. Learners will also find out about both good and bad infection control. The courses also cover legislation relating to infection control. Learners explore the different types of microorganism involved in infection, bacteria tranmission, how the chain of infection works and more.

Dementia Awareness

Around 800,000 people in the UK have dementia. Our courses give a general overview of the symptoms and types of dementia and how it effects the brain. They also provide practical guidance and help on how to support clients living with dementia. In addition to guidance on how to appropriately deal with challenging behaviour.

Online care training is a fast and effective way for businesses to ensure their workforce are ready to succeed in their job roles.
