Improve Training and Compliance with E-learning

10 August 2021

As lockdown restrictions continue to ease in Scotland from this week, many buildings and facilities will reopen to the public. For businesses forced to close their doors, furlough staff, or have staff working from home, it is now essential to start planning a strategy for getting back to business to ensure health and safety compliance needs are met.

Many will be facing different compliance challenges as they operate a hybrid model of home and office working. In this working environment, e-learning can meet training and compliance challenges.

How Can E-Learning Help With Home Working?

 

E-Learning - in particular - Homeworking and Stress courses can educate and identify risks with those employees that continue to work from home.

The Health and Safety Executive announced at the start of lockdown that DSE Assessments were not required for temporary home working. However, as home working has now transitioned to a semi-permanent, or permanent depending on your blended operation model, you need to consider Home Workstation Assessments for employees working remotely. The DSE E-learning module completes a workstation assessment as part of the e-learning course.

What Are the Benefits of E-Learning Platforms?

 

Our e-learning platform delivers both staff training and generates MI that compliance audits are being met across a business.

Defensibility - Our e-learning platform creates an audit trail for each individual employee that can be invaluable when dealing with spurious Employers Liability Claims.

Accessibility - Cloud-based and available at all times to employees on-site and working remotely.

Cost-effective - Reduces training time and cost by allowing online learning to take place at the employee’s convenience.

Visibility - Each module also includes a self-assessment by the employee of how they are working, giving a powerful insight into the performance of your policies and procedures, particularly for staff working remotely.

Well-being - The Stress course and Well-being Check-in allow you to identify employees who may have well-being issues and act proactively.

Employee Engagement - Employees can also leave feedback as part of the training modules. Which gives you an opportunity to interact and build employee engagement.

Managing Training Needs -  Our reporting centre has a suite of user-friendly reports and tools, such as email reminders and management alerts and configuring training plans for different employee groups.
