The Northern Ireland and ROI branches of global lift and escalator specialists, KONE, have recently invested in Quadra’s range of professionally developed online Health and Safety courses, and are benefitting from the flexibility and convenience the training provides.
At Kone, safety is at the top of the agenda, to support the promotion of a positive health and safety culture the organisation invests heavily in a wide range of safety training for their staff members, including traditional classroom learning and dynamic online methods. This blended learning approach ensures that Kone staff members are competent in identifying hazards and adopting safe and healthy working practices as well as enabling individuals to highlight ways to improve health and safety management.
Quadra’s online health and safety training courses are aimed at creating a more convenient and cost-effective way to keep employees up to date with essential health and safety training. All of the online courses are professionally developed and are approved by industry bodies including, RoSPA, IIRSM, IATP and CPD and have been registered by CITBNI for grant assistance to registered in scope employers. Course topics include working at height; manual handling; abrasive wheels; working safely; COSHH and asbestos awareness along with many more within the full course portfolio.
Kone’s HR Officer, Susan Moran who has played a leading role in the online training project commented:
‘Manual handling and working at heights are ongoing concerns for us in relation to health and safety management and when we found out that Quadra offered these courses online we were keen to see if this method worked for us and the staff.
The ease with which the Quadra Online Health and Safety courses can be administered, tracked, and added from one central management account has helped to relieve the strain of managing training courses from a wide range of different providers. The courses are extremely cost effective in comparison to the traditional Health and Safety seat-based courses, which means that I can reinvest in other areas of staff training that my budget would not have previously covered.
We are thrilled with the results of the online training and have received positive responses from our staff members who enjoy the interactive and engaging material within the courses. We would recommend the online courses to other organisation and hope to expand our range of course topics in the future.’
