We've made it easier for you to ensure your staff are adhering to current legislation by combining five of our most popular courses into one convenient package. With a growing number of workplace issues to be addressed as part of UK legislation, it is important to ensure that everyone receives proper training. This will ensure you; your staff and your organisation are protected by having access to the most up to date knowledge, such as reporting potential risks and awareness of new legislation such as The Bribery Act 2010.

We have selected the five e-learning courses based on the common essential training needs of most UK businesses. These modules usually form part of any new staff induction and continuous mandatory training.

What is Included?

The Business Protection Pack includes the following courses:

You can click on each course title for a detailed description, and read a summary below.
Each of the courses is delivered as an e-learning module, so can be completed by the user as a full induction, or paused and resumed to fit around a busy work schedule. Each course ends with an online test and upon successful completion the learner will receive a self-printed certificate as evidence that they have completed each course, making it easy to record who has finished the required training.
Other benefits of using online training in the workplace include:

  • Cost Reductions e.g. travel fees
  • Man hour reduction (training only takes as long as the learner needs)
  • Self-printed certificate for evidence of course completion
  • Staff can start training immediately
  • Helping your business maintain a green status by reducing your carbon footprint

By allowing staff to work at their own pace you can have peace of mind that everybody has received adequate information, without feeling the need to compete with their peers.

Course summaries

Fire Safety and Evacuation (City & Guilds accredited)

Employers are legally required by Fire Safety Regulations (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005) to provide information, instruction and training to employees about fire precautions in the workplace. Our Fire Safety and Evacuation module teaches about the causes of fire, detection and warning systems, evacuation procedure and how to tackle small fires when necessary, covering key required knowledge.

Health and Safety in the Workplace

In 2008/09 more than 29 million days were lost due to work related health and safety issues. By giving employees good Health and Safety training, you reduce the risk of workplace accidents and adhere to your legal obligation of preventing accidents in the workplace. Benefits of good Health and Safety training also result in a more productive, happy work environment. This module demonstrates the key principles of workplace health and safety, emphasised the importance of risk assessment and outlines incident reporting and communication.

Data Protection in the Workplace

In the modern business world most companies gather and store personal data of employees and customers, so it is important that staff recognise how this data should be handled. The Data Protection in the Workplace module provides the benefits and legal requirements staff must adhere to regarding data protection including handling of access rights, requests and reasonable exclusion.

Equality and Diversity in the Workplace

When asked 'what is equality' there are a number of different answers, and this module aims to educate staff in dealing with potential issues and understanding what is meant by equality and diversity in the workplace and how to promote best practice. It is designed to help workers understand the laws surrounding the topic and also raise awareness of how our behaviour can have an effect on others, creating an overall more comfortable workplace.

The Bribery Act 2010

Following the introduction of the Bribery Act 2010 (which came into force July 1st 2011) it is now essential that any company puts procedure in place to show they have adequately tried to prevent any act of bribery. This module aims to clear up confusion on what constitutes bribery (and the difference between this and corporate hospitality) and raise awareness of the penalties associated with a conviction for both the employee and the employer.

Accreditation

The content of these courses have been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines. Our Fire Safety and Evacuation module is City & Guilds Accredited.
