Occupational Safety at the Office

Safety at Work - Occupational safety and accident prevention

Occupational safety and accident prevention

If workplaces are clearly safe and no work-related accidents have occurred for some time, even the most vigilant employee will begin to feel a false sense of security. Nevertheless, accidents and work-related illness are a frequent occurrence, resulting in heavy costs to companies and society as a whole. In order to safeguard the health and physical well-being of your employees at work in the long term, you are legally required to provide them with regular instruction in the area of occupational safety. The use of professional e-learning programs with high-quality multimedia features is an excellent option when seeking to keep employees engaged and motivated.

The ‘Occupational Safety at the Office’ web-based training course from Idox Compliance is used to instruct management-level staff and employees. Your employees learn what you as an employer expect from them when it comes to occupational safety and they find out what their responsibilities are as employees. It also encourages employees to handle resources responsibly and to conduct themselves properly in the workplace, allowing you to prevent work-related accidents and to meet your obligations as an employer.
