Train Your Team Anytime, Anywhere

This course will show how wearing PPE plays a crucial role in preventing and reducing fatalities, injuries and diseases that would otherwise occur in the workplace.

Who is the Personal Protective Equipment Training Course For ?

This course is primarily aimed at people that work in industries such as construction where they are likely to need to use a wide range of PPE on a daily basis. However, there are many other areas of work where PPE is required such as factories, warehouses, window cleaners, healthcare workers, beauticians and many others.

Duration

60 minutes. (Note: This is based on the amount of video content shown and is rounded off. It does not account in any way for loading time or thinking time on the questions).

Approvals

CPD approved*

* Our IIRSM & CPD approved courses are owned by VideoTile Learning Ltd and distributed under licence.

In the UK there are approximately 144 fatalities in the workplace and around 621,000 non-fatal injuries every year. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a vital role in managing health and safety risks. However, historical data shows many workers suffering injury were not wearing this clothing.

This course will show how wearing PPE plays a crucial role in preventing and reducing fatalities, injuries and diseases that would otherwise occur in the workplace. It includes details of a wide range of PPE options, examines the legislation and regulations that govern the responsibilities of employers, employees and suppliers, and provides a real-life case study showing the law in action.

The course will also cover risk assessment and the role it plays in the selection and use of PPE along with discussing other hazard control measures that can be implemented.

Finally, the course will move on to how to use, fit and wear PPE and understand its physical and theoretical limitations.

Target Audience

This course is primarily aimed at people that work in industries such as construction where they are likely to need to use a wide range of PPE on a daily basis. However, there are many other areas of work where PPE is required such as factories, warehouses, window cleaners, healthcare workers, beauticians and many others.

One of the key things this course is intended to do is to teach people why they should use the PPE that is supplied to them and it is some of these other work areas where this message will be most effective.

Why Attend the Personal Protective Equipment Online Training Course?

Candidates understanding how and why they should use PPE will mean they are more likely to use it consistently and correctly throughout their work. This has the advantage of reducing their risk of injury.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.

Further Progression

Many of our other health and safety courses compliment this one include Working at Height, Working Safely and Asbestos Awareness.

About our Courses

How our elearning courses work

Specialist online video production methods ensure extremely fast, high-quality streaming. A combination of the presenter, animations and quiz-style questions keeps learners interested and stimulated.

Our content and Learning Management System (LMS) are constructed to provide a set of multiple-choice questions after each module.   These help embed the learning in trainees’ memories and allow managers to check the training has been completed and understood.

When a candidate successfully completes a course, they will automatically receive a system-generated certificate.

Training managers can also use our course management portal to keep records and track learner progress.

Trainee Experience

A powerful combination of embedded presenters, live video footage and animated graphics immediately grabs learner interest and holds attention.

Face-to-face eye contact builds trust, triggers emotion and delivers a memorable tone and style, while communicating the essence of the learning content.

The overall result is increased learner engagement and the creation of a lasting, positive impression.

Your Learning Management System

The customer dashboard is where the candidates go to do the training. Learning manager can also use the dashboard to manage any number of candidates. It’s mobile-responsive and can deliver extensive reports. If needed, it will work side-by-side with an existing LMS, via an open API.

Checking on Learning

The candidate-facing areas are constructed so that a set of multiple-choice questions are introduced after each module. Following successful completion of a course, candidates will receive a system-generated certificate.​

The question sections of our courses use a variety of techniques.

For example, in the Fire Safety courses, candidates are presented with certain types of fire and have to select the image of the appropriate extinguisher.

We also make use of various exam canvasses to suit all exam types and random question banks. We can feature a wide variety of online questions, including, multiple-choice, drag and drop, surveys, quizzes, answers in free-text exams and assignments.

Yes.  Our courses are built with responsive designs, so they can adapt to multiple device sizes, whether it’s desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

This is particularly useful for learners who are ‘on the go’, or who work in environments where desktop computers are not available.

A recent forecast stated that around 80 per cent of the world’s population (that’s over 6 billion people) are now smartphone users. So it’s no surprise to discover that mobile phones are widely used in training – a trend that is certain to grow significantly in the future.

Why are learners more motivated and engaged in mobile learning courses?

Well, for a start, mobile learning eliminates the need for learning to happen at a particular time and place, or on a specific device.

Mobile learning seamlessly integrates into peoples’ daily routines, making it easier for them to stay on track with the courses, resulting in increased course completion and knowledge retention.

Learners can also use mobile courses to recall information while at work, so they can perform their job better. For example, when someone is about to perform a task, or check a piece of machinery, or give a product sales pitch, they can quickly check their mobile phone and run a short course to help them brush up on the key facts.
