Health and safety is a big subject, and often employers and employees just need to know about the subjects that affect them rather than having a broad knowledge of health and safety generally.
Online courses in specific subjects is often the best way of increasing and sharing health and safety knowledge.
But for many roles requiring CPD evidence or points, it can be hard to find the right course – especially as the world has changed so drastically in the last few years.
With in-person courses no longer so viable – or in some cases, just not attractive – finding a suitable online course at an affordable price is essential.

Many workplaces appoint fire wardens, and online training can provide them with the necessary information to carry out their role effectively and efficiently with confidence.
There are legal requirements that a fire warden should be aware of, as well as responsibilities for preventing fires, assist in evacuating those who are vulnerable and documenting incidents as well as measures taken to prevent fires.
It is important to be aware of how to protect yourselves and others from the possibility of a fire occurring, and a fire warden course for new and existing fire wardens can be an excellent way of ensuring everyone has all the information they need.
Office Health and Safety
Knowledge of health and safety for offices prevents workers and others from being injured or being made ill while they are at work. There are three main reasons in which employers should manage health and safety in the workplace and that it is there obligation to ensure health and safety is adhered to.
Good health and safety management is essential to the safety and wellbeing of all staff. If a business has one or more employees, employers’ liability insurance is legally required under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969.
The European Union (EU) has had a major influence on health and safety legislation in the United Kingdom (UK). As a previous member state, the UK has been required to adopt and introduce numerous directives and regulations, the legislation currently remains unchanged even though the UK has left the EU.
Electrical hazards in the office can be prevented by maintaining equipment regularly. Fixed electrical installation should be correctly selected, installed, used and maintained to prevent, fault, defectiveness or damages.
There is a legal requirement to provide suitable and sufficient welfare facilities under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
If welfare facilities are not sufficient, it can result in physical and psychological illness. It can also cause low morale and low productivity if employees feel that the employer is not bothered about their welfare, so it is essential to understand the health and safety needs of your organisation and to know how to implement a good health and safety programme.
