How Bell Group use eLearning to keep staff safe, happy and productive

5 years ago by Bell Group

At Bell we understand our people are our greatest assets, and that’s why we take the safety, health and wellbeing of our staff incredibly seriously.

We have always had a social conscience and tried to use the work that we do to make a positive impact. I see many businesses today trying to emulate us, but fundamentally, you have to believe in the work you are doing and it has to form part of the DNA of your business if you want to drive real change.

Craig Bell, Chief Executive

We’ve been using iHASCO, a market-leading provider of workplace eLearning, for the past 18 months as part of our wider Health & Safety strategy for which they offer concise, video-based training that helps our 1800 employees understand their Health & Safety responsibilities, helping us to create a safer workforce.

We use a wide range of iHASCO’s core Health & Safety courses, including Fire Awareness, Working at Height and Asbestos Awareness. We also offer staff a range of HR Compliance courses, including Mental Health Awareness  to help to raise awareness of mental health and the support available should they or others need it; Equality & Diversity training to develop employees understanding of the importance of diversity and our expectations as an organisation; Environmental Awareness; DSE and Fire Awareness; and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations).

Courses like Asbestos Awareness and Legionella Awareness teach our staff how to react should there be an incident when on-site. The way we see it, if our staff are safer on the job, then so are our clients!

Whilst we understand that there is a lot more to Health & Safety than online learning iHASCO’s offering has allowed us to train all staff across the group in a cost-effective and time efficient manner. Their LMS allows for easy tracking and reporting and our staff have given us fantastic feedback on the courses, rating iHASCO 4.6 out 5 overall. We couldn’t ask for much more from a provider!
