Viridis' in-house instructional design team can develop a bespoke training program to meet your stated objectives with relevant examples from your industry and using language your staff will understand.
Sessions are developed either to be delivered by one of Viridis' experienced instructors or your own H&S or HR personnel.
Development of eLearning tools and blended learning solutions (e.g. classroom based training top'n'tailed with eLearning) is also available with development being carried out in-house by Viridis' instructional design team.
Below are a few examples of training sessions our instructional designers have been engaged to develop. In most cases Viridis was also retained to deliver the sessions to client staff and managers.
Delegates learn to recognise the symptoms commonly associated with excessive exposure to hand-arm vibration, understand the risks associated with using vibrating hand tools, understand the techniques used to reduce these risks, and be aware of both an employer’s and an employee’s responsibilities with regard to reducing these risks.
Delegates learn about the difference between hazard and risk, be able to conduct a basic risk assessment, learn why risk assessment is an important tool in risk reduction and learn who is responsible for reporting and recording incidents.
Delegates learn why it is important to incorporate the safety of contractors into an existing health and safety system, about health and safety roles and responsibilities with regard to contractors and techniques to help ensure the actions of contractors do not cause harm to themselves or others.
Delegates learn about the requirements of the Noise at Work Regulations and other relevant legislation, associated health effects of excessive occupational noise exposure, about noise action levels, how to go about assessing exposure and what controls can be put in place if there is a problem on site.
Delegates learn about the risks posed by many of the chemical hazards commonly found by LEV engineers, the different routes of exposure and the potential health effects, how to conduct a dynamic review of an existing job risk assessment including an evaluation of the risks posed by hazardous substances and gathering hazard information from SDS sheets. Delegates also learn about the different PPE and control options available to them.
Delegates learn how to conduct a risk assessment of worker exposure to hazardous substances, where to find information about hazardous substances and their health effects, how to use the hierarchy of control to reduce risk, selecting control measures and PPE and the importance of effective risk assessment as a tool to allow the consideration and communication of the risks associated with a hazardous substance.
