British Safety Council launches e-learning courses

The British Safety Council has launched a new range of instant access health, safety and environmental e-learning courses.

The courses are designed to allow employers to quickly and easily purchase and provide online training to employees from as little as £10 per course.

‘Pay-as-you-go’ e-learning

The new e-learning courses are available on a ‘pay-as-you-go basis’, meaning they can be immediately purchased online using a credit card. Developed by British Safety Council experts and based on the latest best practice, the first batch of available e-learning courses are:
• Introduction to Workplace Health and Safety
• General Health and Safety
• Display Screen Equipment (including a self-assessment of the user’s DSE workstation)
• Fire Safety Awareness
• Manual Handling
• Health and Safety for Managers
• Environmental Awareness.

How it works

Once an employer has purchased the required courses, they simply enter the names and emails of the employees to be trained, and the system sends the individual an email with easy-to-follow log-on details taking them straight to the online training.

The courses can be completed in one go or in stages, allowing the individual to learn at their own pace. Designed to be interactive and engaging, the courses feature a short multiple-choice test to ensure the individual has understood the information provided. Once the employee has successfully completed the course and test, they are issued with a PDF ‘completion of training’ certificate which they can download and keep.

Employers are also notified when an employee completes a course so they can maintain training records, and can keep track of the e-learning provided to all staff via an easy-to-use online ‘My Learners’ function. For the DSE course, employers also receive an emailed report listing the outcome of the learner’s self-assessment of their workstation, highlighting any areas for improvement.


The e-learning courses are priced at £15 each when booking 1-19, £13 each for 20-49 and £10 each for 50-plus. ‘Bundle’ packages containing four different courses are also available at prices starting at £40 for 1-19. All prices exclude VAT.

Organisations that become members of the British Safety Council receive 100 free ‘Introduction to Workplace Health and Safety’ e-learning courses each year.
