If you’re working with adults who may be ill or vulnerable to infection then you need to be particularly vigilant in infection control. But why is infection control important?
NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) estimates that 300,000 patients a year in England acquire a healthcare-associated infection as a result of care within the NHS.
Infection control in hospitals and care homes is therefore critical: it harms patients who are already vulnerable and costs healthcare institutions too.
In the workplace, everyone has a responsibility to minimise risks to the health and safety of both themselves and others.
This 11 module course covers the elements you need to know to work safely in your health or social care role.
Every day at work, you are exposed to a range of hazards and risks – even if you do your best to avoid them! Do you know how to identify these risks – and minimize them without also making it impossible to work? A workplace risk assessment will help you to focus on the risks that really matter and avoid catastrophe.
This risk assessment in the workplace course will help you identify hazards and risks in your work environment and then carry out an appropriate risk assessment procedure.
Are you experiencing stress in your workplace or is there a risk of it in the work that you do? Do you know how to respond appropriately – and as required by law?
Whether you are an employer or an employee suffering from work-related stress or simply want guidance for tackling stress at home, it is important that you know the causes of stress, its consequences and the actions you can take to control, manage and minimise it.
Topics surrounding health and safety are often overlooked, and not many take the time to take control of their well-being, especially in the workplace.
We offer a total of 14 courses, and while some are geared specifically towards individuals working in specific industries (the food industry or the medical industry, for example), others cover broader ideas like stress in the workplace, first aid, and basic life support. Our selection of health and safety courses can offer essential training for those hoping to gain a better understanding of what’s needed to feel happy, healthy, secure and comfortable in emergency situations at work.
We offer a variety of Food Safety and Hygiene courses for those preparing to work within the food industry, and refresher courses for those already working regularly with food. Whether working in a restaurant, hotel, cafe, bar or running a catering business of your own, your first order of business should be to understand how to handle food properly.
While this might sound simple, there’s a lot of ground to cover when it comes to food prep. In order to become a trusted source for your customers, our e-training courses will provide you with the right knowledge to start your (or continue) your career on the right path.

In addition to the courses mentioned above, we also provide basic training to ensure you’ll be able to step up at work in an emergency situation, if need be.
