Safety in the Workplace

Protecting Health and Preventing Accidents

The safer workplaces are, the more we tend to lower our guard and hence fail to notice potential hazards. Routine numbs our senses, our ability to analyse risks decreases, our conduct becomes less safe, and, consequently, our risk of having a workplace accident increases. To safeguard the health and physical well-being of your employees at work in the long term, you are legally required to provide them with regular instruction of occupational safety. The use of professional e-learning programs with high-quality multimedia features is an excellent option when seeking to keep employees engaged and motivated.

In the various sections of the training program ‘Safety at the workplace’, management-level staff and employees will learn the most important information about protecting health and preventing accidents in the workplace. They will also learn about the applicable laws and regulations, the risks they might face, and how their conduct can protect them and others from painful and unnecessary consequences in day-to-day situations and in emergencies. This allows you to prevent work-related accidents and to meet your obligations as an employer. Unique to our e-learning course are lessons on how to counteract stress and how management can help employees to reduce stress.
