Site Safe has launched its first-ever blended online course.
The not-for-profit membership health and safety organisation has designed a new course combining the advantages of online and in-class learning, so trainees will now have even more flexibility when they renew Site Safety Cards (Passports).
Chief executive Alison Molloy says the new course will extend workers’ health and safety knowledge, while also providing companies with another cost-effective training option.
“Our latest course, which gives trainees access to a range of online modules, as well as in-class time with a health and safety expert, is a direct result of feedback from the industry,” Ms Molloy says.
“Our new online modules are worker-focused, and allow trainees to choose the topics that are directly relevant to the real-life risks they face on site.”
The Passport Plus – Flexi (Online + Classroom) is now open for online bookings, and will be available at a special introductory price for the first six months.
Trainees select any two modules from a regularly updated online library, which currently includes asbestos, noise, worker basics, manual handling, mobile plant and electrical safety.
With the addition of the Passport Plus – Flexi, Site Safe now offers a total of four new renewal options. They are:
• Passport Plus — Flexi (Online + Classroom) (two hours in-class and two online modules).
• Passport Plus — Tools and Plant (four hours in-class).
• Passport Plus — Height (four hours in class)
• Passport Plus — Worker Health (four hours in-class).
Successful completion of any Site Safe course, including one and two-day courses, or entry-level Foundation Passports, will renew Site Safety Cards/Passports.
