Health & Safety Office Induction eLearning

This office safety online course provides a thorough grounding for those at work in an office environment, focusing on the basic principles of; workstation safety (DSE), manual handling, fire safety, and the very real issues of; accidents, driving at work, home-working, working at height, drugs, alcohol & substance misuse etc.

Tailored training for a standard office environment with the appropriate level of safety detail, assuming there will be trained Fire Marshals present in the office, just touching on fire extinguisher use. See our Fire Marshall Theory course for more detailed Fire Marshall training.

This course provides employees & colleagues with an awareness of the hazards they may face day-to-day within their office based tasks and activities.

Some employers or senior management may be tempted to exclude coverage of the issues such as Work at Height and Manual Handling as they can be perceived to be 'not office related'...

However, the key is to appropriately cover these issues for the office environment. e.g. a person standing on a work chair is considered 'working at height' and a person unloading a delivery of office stationery can be Manual Handling.

It is important that employers provide the appropriate information, instruction and training to a level that is suitable and sufficient for the level of risk.
