Work can be dull at times, and you might find yourself longing for a bit of danger and excitement. But even though things are more exciting when there’s an element of danger, in the workplace, risk is no laughing matter. If you use, or work in the vicinity of, machinery or tools, this course is for you, as knowing how to protect yourself and colleagues is vital. Managers and people in charge should pay particular attention to fully understand the regulations for using machinery, and the requirements for safety equipment.
This course explores general safety equipment, where it’s needed, and what you should know about it. It looks at what you need to know about the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, as well as maintaining and inspecting safety equipment. And you’ll also discover some important advice on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Ah, the joy of getting a new machine at work! Loads of fresh buttons to push, flashing lights, and it’ll make your job quicker and easier! Bonus! But before you get carried away, it’s important to remember that, with every machine or tool in your workshop, comes a whole host of hazards.
Although you might not feel like it, you do need to put your ‘sensible’ head on to use your machinery safely. This is where workshop safety equipment comes in because, in reality, injuring yourself on a machine is going to lessen the excitement!
Let’s face it, learning about safety equipment can be a dry experience. So, to make things more inspiring, we’ve gone for a variety of techniques to make it more memorable. Approved by IOSH, one of the world’s largest health and safety organisations, the course uses clever animation, interactivity, and humour to engage the learner. There’s even a dragon! With interactive menus and click and tell sections, the learner has full control over discovering information at their own pace, and interactive knowledge checkers help them to test their learning during the course. The final quiz poses a range of questions, to make sure the learner can apply their learning, too.
This course also has an assessment at the end which allows learners to test their understanding and helps businesses demonstrate a level of competence in the topic.
With a bank of questions learners will get randomised assessments which means if people do fail the assessment, they aren't faced with the same quiz again; after all you want to test learners knowledge and not their ability to remember the right button to press second time around.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
