|Cardinus launches Connect Summit||13/05/2021|
THE PANDEMIC has brought about many changes to the way we work, and as we move out of it, many organisations have decided to embed that change in their policies.
For those working in health, safety, wellbeing, or ergonomics, this will present new challenges as employees move from home, to the office to third spaces, while still requiring support in all those localities.
Over two days, Cardinus’ Connect Summit will tackle issues such as the legacy of the pandemic, tackling the stresses of flexible working, flexible work regulations, scaling up health programmes to meet the challenge of hybrid work, new technologies and innovative strategies.
With speakers from organisations who work with many of the world’s leading organisations, including Marsh and Wells Fargo, this conference brings together 20+ speakers for two days of in-depth and engaging talks across a broad spectrum of health and risk categories.
On the 29 June, it will be running from 09.00 GMT to 15:00 GMT with topics including “Internal Communications in a Post-COVID Workplace”, “The Legal Implications of the New Working Environment” and “How to Build Your Wellbeing Strategy (Backed Up by the Data)”.
While the 30 June sees a more explicitly US-context, running from 15.00 GMT to 19.00 GMT, with topics including “Return to the Office – Are You Ready?”, “Work/Life Integration” and “Consideration for the Flexible Workforce”.

|Cardinus’ new personal wellbeing course||08/03/2021|
THE OFFICE for National Statistics (ONS) reports that happiness has remained at its lowest level since March 2020, with overall satisfaction with life significantly lower, and anxiety higher than pre-lockdown levels.
Beyond the data, we are all aware anecdotally, and from our personal lives, that personal wellbeing has taken a hit since the start of the pandemic.
To combat this Cardinus has supported customers with appropriate training and risk assessment software throughout the pandemic, releasing courses on home working, return-to-work, mental health and now Personal Wellbeing.
The personal wellbeing course
The Personal Wellbeing course is authored by wellbeing consultant, expert, speaker and podcast host, Kristel Bauer of Live Greatly. With her extensive knowledge of wellness and mindfulness practice, and as a respected consultant in corporate wellbeing, she is well-placed to provide the knowledge and expertise that employees need to support their wellbeing at this difficult time.
Coupled with Cardinus’ leading health, safety and wellbeing e-learning platform, which now extends to over 25 courses, the Personal Wellbeing course can really help to improve the lives of employees as the pandemic continues.
Andy Hawkes, CEO of Cardinus Risk Management said, “The Personal Wellbeing course represents the latest effort by Cardinus to provide customers with the support they need to truly tackle some of the issues that have arisen through the pandemic and in to the future.
Kristel’s understanding of wellbeing issues and the practical advice and exercises given within the course will undoubtedly be of great use to those who manage wellbeing in organisations across the UK and globally.
Wellbeing is a hot-button issue and has been growing in popularity since before COVID. This course adds a missing element to our suite and gives our customers fantastic coverage across all areas of health, safety, security and wellbeing. “
What does the course cover?
Personal Wellbeing covers all main areas of wellbeing, including:
The course also provides deeper learning opportunities around energy levels and sleep quality, brain function, performance and attention, incorporating movement into the workday and more. Plus, it provides downloadable content around exercises and practices to ensure that employees can quickly access that information throughout their day.

|Dynamic risk assessment for a COVID-world||11/11/2020|
CARDINUS RISK Management, an AmWins Group company, has developed a unique training model, SOAP, that provides employees with the tools to measure and mitigate risk in relation to working in a COVID-world.
As a vaccine is finally mooted and organisations consider a 2021 with a reduced risk to COVID, there are serious concerns that health and safety managers will need to address now and during a transitional phase moving back to a workplace.
Employees working out on-site or travelling to and from a workplace, need to consider and weigh up their approach to risk. Coronavirus presents an invisible risk with a very real chance of exposure and ill-health. This is compounded when considering that employees may live with others who are vulnerable. For employers this presents a big risk.
Right now, and looking towards a transitional phase returning to work in 2021, employees need to be able to dynamically assess their exposure to infection risk so that they can avoid contracting coronavirus.
Cardinus is presenting this as a training model for organisations with two packages. A training course for staff and a train the trainer model, to enable organisations to share knowledge quickly across their entire workforce and to reinforce knowledge.
SOAP (Surface – Object – Area – People) is Cardinus' dynamic COVID risk assessment. The model helps identify places that are high risk and will help identify control measures that staff can use to lower their personal risk.
The methodology builds on the mnemonic SOAP. It’s a simple and effective teach model for this complex risk.
Commenting the model, Andy Neal, global security solutions director at Cardinus, stated, “COVID-19 has presented serious risks to organisations and their employees. Through this unique training model we’re empowering employees with the knowledge to mitigate their own risk through observation, awareness and risk assessment.
This is an exciting training model for organisations to reduce their exposure to risk and to train, through an engaging course, employees to remove the risk of contracting COVID. It helps both the employee and employer.”

|Cardinus champions health and wellbeing||16/09/2020|
CARDINUS HAS teamed up with innovative start-up Champion Health to bring new emphasis to the challenge of health and wellbeing in the UK workforce. Following a difficult year and with many changes in the workplace, this is more necessary than ever.
After using the Champion Health platform with their own staff, the team at Cardinus spotted an opportunity that would have a lasting impact by offering it to their customer base.
The partnership with Champion Health extends Cardinus’ profile to include a strong focus on mental health, wellbeing, diet and nutrition and sleep.
Together with Champion Health, Cardinus can now bring a comprehensive range of health and safety solutions to customers, including powerful e-learning and risk assessment programmes in fields like ergonomics, fire safety, travel safety, fleet risk, and HR.
And with changes to the workplace following unprecedented disruption from COVID-19, the focus on employee health and wellbeing has never been clearer.
Over the course of the pandemic, both Champion Health and Cardinus Risk Management have aimed to support employers and employees to improve their wellbeing.
The partners worked together to develop the Coronavirus Advice Tool, a digital advice platform to reduce risk and improve health due to Coronavirus. So far this has seen over 1,500 people register and has been viewed nearly 5,000 times.
Demand has also increased for Champion Health’s digital wellbeing assessment platform, up 1,000% since lockdown began, demonstrating the shift in workplace wellbeing from a “nice to have” to a “need to have”. This has led Champion Health to launch their highly-anticipated Champion Employer Scheme; an accreditation that recognises and rewards organisations who committed to making a difference to employee wellbeing.
Meanwhile Cardinus created their COVID-19 Health and Safety Hub, providing advice and guidance for organisations in dealing with the health and safety implications of COVID. The Hub reached over 20,000 people, with over 3,000 users taking advantage of the free resources to support their initiatives and improve health and safety.
Andy Hawkes, Cardinus Risk Management CEO, said of the partnership, “We are thrilled to be working closely with Harry and the Champion Health team to support clients who are looking for a simple online mental health and wellbeing solution to complement our ergonomics expertise.”
When asked about the partnership Harry Bliss said, “It’s a significant opportunity to partner with a world-leading company in workplace ergonomics. We know the impact that our approach to workplace health has and it’s great to be partnered with Cardinus as we both look to benefit people, businesses and society.”
Together Cardinus and Champion Health will ensure that health and wellbeing is given the prominence it deserves in organisations and will fill the gap left by traditional health and safety solution providers.
