RoSPA launch the future of Health and Safety training at the NEC
The Health and Safety Show at the NEC last week held many surprises in store for the several thousand visitors that continued to arrive throughout the three days in Birmingham.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) had a little more to offer to their guests at their own stand in the Health and Safety Show as they launched their new E-Video’s collection.
The future of training
The E-Videos are a series of online short films which can be watched from any PC in any office. All of the films relate to essential Health and Safety subjects crucial in many different workplaces over the country.
An employer can pick and choose which films they feel apply to their own company and the employees can then watch the video at a time convenient for them, unlike the time consuming safety training which can take up a whole day and waste valuable time and disrupt schedules.
With an E-Video a worker doesn’t have to leave their desk, they just have to do the simple task of playing the video on their own or a colleague’s computer.
After the short video has finished there is a series of multiple choice questions for the viewer to answer to ensure they understand and took note of everything in the Health and Safety video.
The whole process takes just 15 minutes and afterwards, the employer can see their employee’s scores displaying that everyone in the team has learnt new safety procedures.
Frances Richardson of RoSPA was at the event to introduce the new videos, “Managers need to be more accountable today and take that extra step to ensure their workforce has all of the health and safety knowledge they need in order to work for their company.”
“The videos not only increase flexibility but also give a manager the peace of mind that everyone has understood and paid attention to the information provided.”
Guests to the launch, including director-e, were all treated to canapé’s, roasted chicken and Bucks Fizz as some of the short films were played for the first time. The video’s cover a wide range of topics such as fire training and basic first aid and draw the attention just like a television documentary would.
The video certainly doesn’t feel like a normal training film and it was obvious that watchers at the launch were engrossed throughout as the buzz around the stand
