Often businesses and individuals blame their lack of training or knowledge regarding important matters such as health and safety on their busy work and home schedules. Their apparent inability to find time they believe is an excusable reason as to why they have not completed the adequate and necessary which their job expects them to carry out.

However, avoiding completing the relevant health and safety training is unlawful and dangerous in any business environment. This is because that individual is putting people’s lives at risk whilst jeopardising the reputation, ethos and financial grounding of the business that they are involved with. Legislation on safety in the workplace is put in place for a very good reason and therefore if the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) finds anyone ignoring these guidelines they will penalise them which could lead to financial difficulties and closure. Therefore it is vital that individuals find health and safety courses which they can complete around their busy work schedules to ensure that they adhere to the health and safety regulations.

This article will explore how course providers are offering flexible courses to enable you to complete the relevant health and safety training around your busy work and home schedules.

Flexible Training Schemes

Many health and safety course providers are now bending over backwards to create flexible training schemes. This flexibility will allow you to choose a course which fits in with your daily life, allowing you to complete the necessary training without affecting your normal working day. What’s more, providers are creating courses which are designed solely around your needs to ensure that you get the relevant information to your industry sector or job specification. This means that there is a great plethora of health and safety courses which have been constructed to teach you the health and safety measures which relate directly to your line of work and even your specific working environment.

Providers have also created short-term intense courses which last just one day which minimises the loss of business or working hours to your company. To make it even easier for you, some health and safety course tutors are willing to teach the course to those who need it at your own premises. This saves money on transport and means that the tutor can tailor the course to your needs by understanding your work environment.

Online & E-learning Courses

Another way that health and safety course providers are making training more accessible and available to you is by creating online (instructor-led) or e-learning interactive courses. E-learning gives you complete control and flexibility over you learning and allows you to complete the course in your own time. This means that the course is less intense and impacts less on your daily life. Online courses also allow you to learn at your own pace whilst they record your progress, providing you with relevant guidance, support and feedback to sustain your learning. By managing your own time through an online interactive course you can complete the relevant and necessary training easily.

Many people argue that they are unable to complete health and safety training because of time constraints and a busy work schedule. However, E-learning courses make completing the necessary training easy as they are flexible and are designed around your lifestyle and needs. View IOSH online courses and NEBOSH online courses.
