Bespoke online platform revolutionises Health & Safety training

Forget costly, time-consuming staff training seminars – now all the modules for a Health & Safety compliant workforce are online.

New Zealand businesses can now quickly train a workforce of thousands to OS&H compliance online – and create huge savings in their learning and development budget. With Safety First’s Training Hub online platform, employees can complete Health and Safety training modules at their own pace, from the convenience of their desk. 

Based on a per-seat user licence, the Safety First Training Hub system is extremely cost effective, compared to traditional face to face training, and eliminates the need for HR Managers to schedule expensive trainers, meeting rooms and time away for each staff member. 

The Safety First Training Hub qualifications are internationally recognised, and the training modules have been audited by Simpson Grierson as compliant with current New Zealand OS&H legislation. As the sole New Zealand distributor, Safety First are working towards NZQA accreditation for the online courses.

A responsive, accessible way to train for company-wide workplace H&S compliance

The Safety First Training Hub platform can be updated instantly so modules always stay current and in line with legislation changes. Using one source of truth also means that all participants get a consistent training experience and eliminates trainer incompetence. 

Based on best practice user experience guidelines the digital training environment provides responsive, richly interactive and easily accessible content. Employees can check what training they have been assigned, search for and request new modules and assess what training courses are most urgent. Safety First Training Hub is available anywhere, on any connected device. 

Managers and Human Resources teams can easily assign, manage and monitor company-wide compliance via management controls, and view data in smart dashboard formats for instant insights.

If specific modules are required, Safety First will develop bespoke training courses within the online platform. To complement the online training system, Safety First can provide bespoke on-site training, and has a nationwide team of consultants who can conduct health and safety assessments and help businesses ensure compliance. 

Online Health and Safety training delivers big L&D savings

With options of a 36 month complete system licence or 12 month per-user licences, the cost of training teams via Safety First Training Hub’s online Health and Safety training modules provide online training and compliance records at a fraction of the traditional cost. 

Safety First’s Training Hub project leader explains; 

“It’s normal for a medium sized New Zealand company to spend $1200 per person every year to ensure employees are Health and Safety trained to a standard that meets legal compliance. Initial Training Hub quotes have shown dramatic savings for businesses of over $10,000 per year.”

The bespoke suite, designed for 1-100 users, allows businesses to ‘clip on’ the relevant training modules and simply pay per user per year. 

Safety First’s online Health and Safety training is designed to help businesses to protect their people through education, but also protects the business and the management team by ensuring the organisation obtains – and can demonstrate - workplace health and safety compliance. This all-of-business compliance provides peace of mind, saves time, money and prevents incidents.

Online Health and Safety training modules for staff, wardens and management

The six Health and Safety training modules in the initial Safety First Training Hub range from modules suitable for all staff to specific management and warden training. The generic OH&S module covers a huge range of compliance essentials such as first aid, ergonomics, basic health and Safety, risk management - but takes just one hour to complete; with no pre-work required. 

A Training Hub module designed for management includes subjects like workplace harassment and bullying; and brings decision makers up to speed on their personal vulnerability and responsibilities under the Workplace Health and Safety Act 2016. 

The Training Hub modules were developed for Safety First by Learning Seat, Australasia’s leading compliance training experts. Learning Seat have provided training modules in the Asia Pacific region for 27 years. They currently protect over 500 clients, and count over 700,000 learners who have completed Learning Seat courses online.
