Health and Safety

‘Safety doesn’t happen by accident’

Unknown

Health and Safety is a subject that gets a bad press as it is perceived as stopping people from doing things as opposed to saving lives. Health and Safety is an important aspect of the workplace. With the workplace safe, staff can stay healthy and can achieve their working aims.  When Health and Safety goes wrong that is when we hear about in the newspapers and  in the news.

Workplaces with poor Health and Safety practices can end up with:

  • Bad reputations,
  • Fines, and /or
  • Imprisonment of the business owner.

These consequences are bad enough, the repercussions for the employee of a poor workplace health and safety ethos can ultimately be death.

This Health and Safety e-Learning course den is designed to take you deeper into the world of Health and Safety than we can in a classroom based course.

VideoTile Learning Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome e-Learning Course

Why this course?

Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) can cause vibration white finger, a permanent and painful numbness and tingling in the hands and arms, also painful joints and muscle weakening. There is also evidence that it may cause carpel tunnel syndrome.

Hand-held portable power tools that transmit vibration into the operator’s hands and arms such as grinders, sanders, impact wrenches and air chisels can lead to HAVS.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) states that tools should only be purchased if they have been designed and constructed to reduce the risk of vibration and are suitable for their intended use. Employers should train workers to use them safely and keep them properly maintained.

Regular and frequent exposure to hand-arm vibration can lead to permanent health effects. This is most likely when contact with a vibrating tool or work process is a regular part of a person’s job. Occasional and/or infrequent low exposure is unlikely to cause ill health.

The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations place duties on employers and the self-employed to assess and identify measures to eliminate or reduce risks from exposure to hand-arm vibration, this course will help you to meet current regulations.

VideoTile Learning Lock Out/Tag Out (LOTO) e-Learning Course

Why this course?

Lock Out/Tag Out (LOTO) is a safety procedure used to ensure that dangerous equipment is properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or repair work.

LOTO requires that hazardous energy sources be ‘isolated and rendered inoperative before work is started on the equipment in question.

The isolated power sources are then locked, and a tag is placed on the lock identifying the worker and reason the LOTO is placed on it. The worker then holds the key for the lock, ensuring that only they can remove the lock and start the equipment, Thus preventing accidental startup of equipment while it is in a hazardous state or while a worker is in direct contact with it.

Lockout–tagout is used across industries as a safe method of working on hazardous equipment and is not currently mandated by legislation in the UK but has been proven as best practice across multiple industries.

What’s covered?

  • What is a Lock Out/Tag Out System?
  • What Type of Hazard Exposure Might be Required for Lock Out/Tag Out?
