Business Specific Guidance
If you operate within a specific risk industry, we have grouped information, guidance and direction by sector in order to help you. It is designed to address those areas where specific regulations have been put in place governing the particular risks the particular industry may encounter. Issues are addressed not just the rules.
Our E-Learning solution offers a wide variety of Health & Safety training courses created by our highly qualified Health and Safety experts
As a cost effective solution to Health & Safety training our online e-Learning is especially suited to businesses on a tight budget or struggle to get employees together for classroom-based training. The courses offered in this facility were created with the emphasis on giving the learner the practical information they would need in order for them to deal with the Health & Safety issues they may actually encounter when at work.
By placing the emphasis on delivering the training material as concisely as possible, we have been able to cut down on course lengths helping to maintain learners attention, ensuring the knowledge of the lesson is understood and retained.
Just like the training material itself, our Learning Management System (LMS) has been designed and created by our own team of software developers and unlike many Health & Safety E-Learning solutions currently on the market, is not licensed from a Third Party.
Our e-Learning courses are:
Our Health and Safety service provides up-to-date information on the provisions of current Health and Safety Legislation and explains in clear language the obligations of companies and their directors and or principals.
Health and Safety at Work Regulations apply to all businesses, regardless of size. They cover employees, both full or part time, temporary or permanent, the self-employed, young people doing work experience, apprentices, charity workers, mobile workers and homeworkers.
Workplace Health and Safety is an issue which has increasing importance for businesses of all sizes regardless of industry. Planning for effective Health & Safety Management is vital for your business.
Health and Safety Click can provide you with the tools and information that will help keep your business compliant, without the costs of Health and Safety consultants. Our online safety management service, which allows untrained managers of small and medium sized enterprises to understand, audit, improve and document their workplace safety management, with unlimited access by email to our panel of expert safety consultants.
Our Human Resources service was designed by a team of HR Professionals with many years of experience in dealing with HR issues. The policies, procedures and documents have resulted from their experiences and take account of best practice and case law.
Employment legislation is a major headache for many employers. In the current working environment even minor disputes can have potentially litigious and costly consequences. Our service is designed to provide help and information concerning the employment of workers to businesses that do not benefit from their own HR team. Many of the articles result from actual Employment Tribunal cases that the authors have been involved in and our subscribers can benefit from these real-life scenarios.
The majority of employers DO deal with their employees fairly. Nonetheless, tribunals are often unable to determine "fair" treatment due to the lack of an "audit trail" which records the opportunities and warnings an employee has received prior to their dismissal or resignation. Our Human Resource service is designed to help managers deal with employees in a way that is not only fair but seen to be fair.
The information sections, policies and procedures have been written in a practical and straightforward way, explaining how employment legislation translates in practice. A strict interpretation of law may be required when dealing with Employment Tribunal or other claims by employees and users are therefore advised to seek legal opinion before responding to these.
Business Continuity encompases the planning and processes of creating systems of prevention and recovery to deal with potential threats to your business.
You may wonder what Business Continuity is, another piece of red tape perhaps?
In fact it is far from it, it may be the very thing that keeps you in business when an even minor disaster strikes. Business Managers invariably believe that they have everything covered because to date nothing has gone seriously wrong. Most likely nothing will.
But, what if there was a fire, not necessarily a big one, just sufficient to stop your business for a few of days.
Ask yourself these questions:
Would you manage? Would you survive?
Planning can ensure you do and the 'Head of the Business' must be the person insisting that the planning takes place this service will help you to do just that...
