Wherever you work, and whether you work alone or with others, the need for adequate lighting is always there. Things really do go bump in the dark. But injury or illness caused by bad lighting are avoidable, so knowing what to do and what to look out for is a vital part of safe working. Managers or people in charge of workplace health and safety also need to be aware of how to stay fully compliant with health and safety requirements.
Understanding the problems that bad lighting can cause and how you can avoid them is a must when you’re at work. This course will help you understand the dangers of having insufficient lighting and illumination levels, and help you assess and manage the health and safety risks attributable to poor lighting in the workplace. It also looks at the requirements around adequate lighting in the workplace, so you can stay compliant.
Scaring your friends with ghost stories around a campfire just wouldn’t be fun in the daylight, would it? And you can’t play ‘murder in the dark’ without the dark, can you? You see, poor lighting can add drama to a situation. But in the workplace, not having proper lighting can make for a life-or-death scenario.
Working in an environment with poor natural light or inadequate lighting can pose a serious risk to your safety. And believe it or not, it could be the cause of some painful health issues, too. In this short course, you’re going to learn exactly why it’s important to stay well-lit at work.
As a subject, lighting in the workplace sounds pretty dull. But we aim to change that, through the power of storytelling and a little comedy, to help learners engage and enjoy gaining new knowledge.
Our creative ‘Van Helsing vs Dracula’ theme, and clever animation, will help keep learners engaged by delivering a memorable visual experience that makes the learning stick. Approved by the world’s biggest Health & Safety organisation, IOSH, this course uses interactivity to further engage learners. With interactive knowledge checkers during the course to help learners problem-solve.
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.
