Jangro enhances health & safety training module
Jangro, the largest network of independent janitorial and cleaning distributors in the UK and Ireland, has made further enhancements to its award-winning and CPD-accredited e-learning platform, the Jangro Learning Management Solution (LMS). Its newly refreshed health and safety training course is now live and available for operatives to complete at www.jangrolms.net.
Often perceived as a career requiring limited (or zero) skills, cleaning can actually be a hazardous occupation. For example, many chemical products used are dangerous and, if handled incorrectly, can be detrimental to health, the environment, and even cause fires.
The newly enhanced Health & Safety module takes 30 minutes to complete, during which users will learn to:
- Identify risks in cleaning
- Prevent accidents during cleaning
- Recognise their responsibilities regarding health and safety
- Identify chemical and biological hazards in the workspace
By the end of the course, they will have been taught to understand health & safety signs and hazard symbols, identify possible accidents, and eliminate risks in the most effective way.
"Employers have a legal responsibility to make sure that their staff have a safe working environment," notes Jo Gilliard, CEO at Jangro. "But it is also important that employees contribute to the review and development of best working practices.
"It is vital that together, they can both properly identify common workplace accident hotspots to prevent them before someone gets hurt. The newly refreshed health & safety course on the LMS enables them to do just that, quickly, easily, and cost effectively."
Accessible to all Jangro customers and their staff, the LMS is designed to give clients the tools to get their teams fully trained quickly and efficiently, so that they can offer a safe and high-quality cleaning service.
Highly accessible and fully interactive, this innovative, versatile e-learning platform covers a wide range of topics, with varying course lengths. Users can, therefore, dip in and out of sessions as required and train remotely at times that suit them. Other modules include Colour Coding & Infection Control, Washroom Hygiene, COSHH, Floor Care, Kitchen Hygiene, and many more.
