QBE has launched a new health and safety e-learning initiative. Together with international training solutions company Vocam, the group will offer over 600 courses focusing on health and safety in the workplace.
The courses cover areas as diverse as Construction, Work at Height Safety, Logistics, Warehouse, Driver Safety, PPE, Electrical, Fire, Food and Hospitality, HR and induction, Drugs and Alcohol.
A fully on-line e-learning package is available in easily downloadable modules. Each training session typically lasts about 25 minutes and through a partner discount for QBE, its clients will benefit from discounts up of to 30%.
Commenting on the new programme, Mike Barraclough, Client Risk Manager of QBE’s Casualty Risk Management team said, “We are often asked by clients to recommend an e-learning provider for their health and safety training programmes. This is particularly so for those companies who do not have their own in-house resources.
“We’ve developed this initiative in direct response to this growing demand from clients and our own desire to promote a focus on health and safety training and compliance.
“Diverse and geographically spread employees can do their training online without the need to be absent from their place of work, which makes it a really cost-effective option.”
