To make your task of complying with the government "Working Safely during COVID-19" guidelines easier, online training provider Human Focus, has developed a comprehensive suite of RoSPA approved e-Learning courses for staff and managers.

This suite of training includes a completely free introductory course (no purchase necessary) on universal Coronavirus safety tips. 

For all staff there are two e-Learning modules:

  1. Coronavirus safety – Universal safety steps (free)
  2. Coronavirus workplace infection control – what all employees need to know (fee applies).

The workplace infection-control e-learning module comes in three versions – office, industry and construction.    

For managers and safety representatives there are 3 modules:

  1. Risk management principles for infection control
  2. Implementing infection control during day-to-day operations
  3. Dealing with suspected cases of infections in the workplace.

These training modules have been carefully designed to help meet the key recommendations of the government working safely guidelines and provide a ready-to-go training resource for creating a safer workplace during Coronavirus.

These e-Learning courses are delivered via interactive video which engage staff and convey the key points with engaging visuals. The courses can be taken remotely removing the need for class room training.

Brits willing to wear devices that detect mental health conditions 15/02/2018

A new survey has revealed that over half (51 per cent) of British workers would be willing to wear a device that may detect the early signs of mental health symptoms, provided their employer would supply the device.

The survey, commissioned by AXA and conducted by YouGov, also revealed that 41 per cent of the workforce in this country has experienced some form of mental health condition in the workplace. 

For employers, health-tech can provide useful information to help reduce workforce absenteeism and increase productivity and 45 per cent of people would be willing to share the information gathered by health-tech if it helped with employee wellbeing strategies. 

Responses also showed that of people who have suffered from mental health issues in the workplace, 52 per cent have never discussed their situation with their employer. However of the 48 per cent who did speak to their manager, 71 per cent found the results supportive or helpful. 

Representatives from NHS England, the mental health charity Mind, academia and business leaders recently discussed these findings at an AXA Health Tech & You Roundtable: Managing Mental Wellbeing in the Workplace, Can Health Tech Help?  

Key points that arose from this discussion included:

  • Trust: A culture of trust should be established in the workplace with regards to wearing personal health tech to monitor mental wellbeing. 
  • Support: Health tech should be used to complement existing  face-to-face support for employees not replace human interaction
  • Holistic Approach: The health and wellbeing of individuals should not just focus on the workplace environment, but take into consideration their wider lifestyle outside of the workplace that may contribute to mental wellbeing.
  • Implementation: Tech to support mental wellbeing should be implemented on a personal basis and involve senior management discussing openly their commitment to support those with a mental health condition.
  • Accreditation: Any health tech to be used should be accredited to ensure quality, efficacy and safety for employees.
