Personal Safety Training Courses for a Better Business
Our Personal Safety courses are available as part of the Health and Safety eLearning Suite in one great package.
Personal Safety Training
Our Personal Safety training course sets out what employers' responsibilities are when it comes to maintaining the personal safety of their staff; when and where your personal safety is most at risk; how to assess and minimise risks to personal safety in the workplace and life; and what the legislation is regarding self-defence in violent situations.
In addition to our personal safety online training course, employers may be interested in packaging together an entire bundle of personal safety courses, including Slips and Trips, Violence and Aggression and Your Health and Safety – all designed to keep staff members safe and control the risk of personal injury at work.
To supplement our full length courses we also have a range of 5 minute microlearning courses which are short, specific, highly targeted bursts of information aimed at maximising learner engagement and knowledge retention. These include Can You spot the Hazard?, Know your Safety Signs? and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
All our personal safety training courses are available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation's requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
What is personal safety training?
Personal safety is a person's right to go about their everyday life free from the threat or fear of psychological, emotional, and physical harm from others. The application of personal safety awareness training in the workplace is an increasingly developing area, and we can attribute this to a number of factors. Firstly, employers have a duty of care to protect the health and safety of their employees as far as reasonably possible. This includes conducting risk assessments, recording the findings, and implementing any necessary changes to ensure personal safety in the workplace is taken seriously.
Other factors in the development of personal safety training include increased levels of violence at work (that is, in those that are recorded), the financial and reputational repercussions that organisations who ignore their duty of care risk, and expectations from staff. Organisations may struggle to recruit or retain talent in an environment that does not offer effective personal safety training, and where violence and aggression is seen to go unchecked. The unwanted impact on productivity and profitability that neglecting personal safety awareness training can have is a serious matter, and it can be mitigated using personal safety eLearning courses.
