“The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires all businesses in the UK to provide whatever information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of employees.”
Despite the legal requirement, health and safety training has a bad reputation. Most people working in an office don’t want to do it, and won’t think about it much again. VinciWorks is currently developing a new OHS course designed to make training more engaging and relevant to the user’s workplace.
Health and Safety for Office Workers
VinciWorks’ Health and Safety for Office Workers course delivers short, interactive health and safety training units which are customised to the specific office they work in by default. Gone are the endless slides that bear little to no relevance to a person’s working environment. Health and Safety for Office Workers provides all the health and safety information in one place.
Health and Safety for Office Workers contains ten stand-alone units which can be made mandatory by the admin. The units are RoSPA approved and contain dynamic, interactive learning as well as customised content as standard and ‘write-your-own’ units to ensure the right health and safety information gets to the users who need it.
Further, floor plans of the office can be uploaded to the Health and Safety Dashboard, with admin users marking points of interest such as fire exits, electrical hazards and first aid stations. Admins can add additional information to the floor plan on the Dashboard, such as accident hot spots based on accident reporting data. These points of interest can include real pictures from the office, custom content, explanations, and links to further training.
Users will be able to upload risks and near misses by taking a picture with their phone, and uploading it to a central reporting system where admin users can track and report on all risks, accidents and near misses. Admins can further use this data to mark further points of interest including specific hazards on the floor plan.
