As the world of business is changing how it works, we all need to adapt and change as well.
With the outbreak of the coronavirus, more and more people have been turning to the ‘virtual world’ by using video calling not only for keeping in touch with loved ones but also for conducting meetings, interviews and training courses.
Here at Quality Safety Training, we have decided to fully embrace this new way of working and although we have always provided e-learning courses on a range of subjects, we are now able to offer an online Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment e-course.
This course is designed for those working on construction sites and who need to obtain a green Labourer CSCS card. It is equivalent to the CITB Site Safety Plus Health and Safety Awareness course so you know that your delegate(s) will be receiving training to a set standard.
Delegates who participate in the course and pass the online invigilated exam will receive a certificate that can then be used to apply for the Labourer CSCS card, in conjunction with an in-date Health, Safety and Environment (HS&E) touch screen test. This means that an HS&E touch screen test has to have been passed within the last two years at the time of completing this e-learning course.
We are able to do the following:
- Provide delegate(s) with a license for them to have access to the online Level 1 Health and Safety in a Construction Environment course;
- Once passed, wait 72 hours and login details to the online exam portal will be sent out;
- Once the delegate(s) has passed the exam, an accredited certificate will be sent to the delegate(s);
- Book delegate(s) onto the HS&E touch screen test (if not taken and passed within two years of sitting the online course);
- On successfully passing the HS&E touch screen test, we can then apply for the green Labourer CSCS card on behalf of the delegate(s).
The great advantage of this online course is that delegate(s) do not have to attend a classroom-based event and it can be done at a time that suits everyone.
Some of us may not be fully up to speed with this new ‘virtual world’ (including some of us at QST!) and human beings in general are not fond of change, however, if this is the way we can all move forward safely then it can only be a good thing.
We are also branching out to provide training via ‘zoom’ and Microsoft Teams. Take a look at our previous blog for more information on this.
