Developing a culture of health and safety through e-learning on-demand
A key responsibility for any health and safety manager is to ensure that everyone, especially anyone with specific responsibilities, has the necessary training.
Professional training courses can be expensive and time consuming, but there is a cheaper, more flexible option. Through e-learning, everyone working within a school or across a multi-academy trust can be trained for their level of responsibility.
