Online COSHH

COSHH – Control of Substances Hazardous to Health, has been law since the 1980s. It is, however, a law that it is easy to fall foul of. Substances hazardous to health covers a wide range of things. Employers are responsible for making sure that risks of exposure are as low as reasonably possible.

Training is a very important part of COSHH compliance. By offering online COSHH to your clients, they can keep their teams safe and avoid unnecessary risk.

Who Should Receive COSHH Training?

Anyone who works with substances that are hazardous to health should be trained on COSHH. This will affect a large range of employees, some not as obvious as others. For example, cleaning staff members use solvents and detergents, which are considered hazardous substances. Anyone who works in a dusty environment, such as a bakery or a long term storage facility needs to be trained.

Most importantly, managers need to be trained in COSHH. It is the responsibility of managers to ensure that risk assessments have been undertaken and are being followed. This means that they need to have a firm grasp on the concepts involved,  even if they are not directly working with hazardous substances.

Online training provides employees a training option that is interactive and easy to return to if they need a refresher. By offering online training to your clients, you are giving their team the best tool to maintain the health and safety of everyone in the workplace.

Online Manual Handling Training

Getting your employees trained in manual handling, is not only a legal requirement, but it’s also a smart business decision. More than 1 in 3 workplace injuries are caused by bad lifting technique. These injuries are generally musculoskeletal in nature and are often back related. Injuries like this can be painful and debilitating, which can lead to employees needing a large number of days off work. To avoid this drain on the business labour pool, firms need to train their team. By offering online manual handling training, you can help businesses protect their workforce. However, this training should be accessible and engaging.

What is online manual handling training?

Manual handling training can be split into two parts. There is the awareness side of the training. This covers the relevant regulations and legislation, along with the theory behind safe lifting practices. A practical training session typically follows the theoretical part of the training.

With two-part training like this, it can be challenging to get all your employees together for the time necessary. That’s why online training is an excellent option here. Each employee can complete the theoretical part of the training at a time that suits them. Then you only need to arrange the practical component of the training course.

Online training is an engaging choice for a topic that is often repeated. Manual handling if often a type of training that a lot of employees can be resistant to engaging with. Many think they already know how to lift things, so don’t pay attention. Professionals present our online training. We use stylish graphics and interactive games and questions to keep everyone engaged. This means that you have reassurance  that firms and their employees engage with the training. No one can just switch off during the presentation.
