Being based in multiple offices across the UK can often make it a nuisance to coordinate Health & Safety training with other sites – especially when a training provider doesn’t have a simple set-up process.
Health & Safety is a subject that must be taken very seriously and that’s why we ensure that our staff stay fully engaged with their training so that they have an understanding of best practices.
In order to keep our staff aware of their responsibilities, all of our new staff complete a Health & Safety classroom course during their induction. We also have a Health & Safety committee that meets quarterly to discuss our current arrangements. This, along with our eLearning platform, helps to keep our workplace safe and our staff productive.
Here at MAC Construction Consultants, we’ve been using iHASCO, a market-leading provider of Health & Safety and HR Compliance eLearning, for around 3 months now, as an integral part of our Health & Safety strategy.
iHASCO supply engaging video-based eLearning that is easy for our team to engage with and offers information in easily-digestible bitesize chunks.
We use a range of iHASCO’s Health & Safety courses including Asbestos Awareness Training, Fire Awareness Training, and Display Screen Equipment Training. Ultimately, these courses help us to identify & reduce risks in the workplace.
“iHASCO has helped us to easily manage our mandatory training and compliance needs for our growing team of construction management specialists and feedback from staff has been positive to date!”
– Jonathan Jones, Associate Director at MAC Construction Consultants
We also take our employees wellbeing just as seriously as any other Health & Safety issue. For this reason, we are introducing our Employee Assistance Programme, which will offer help and professional advice on various life issues such as stress, debt management, divorce, addiction, and any family issues.
In conclusion, we believe that all of these investments in our workforce ultimately make for a safer, more productive workplace!
