Skillsoft announces the extension of their health and safety training library for the UK market and the launch of their ecommerce store

Camberley, 8th October 2014: Skillsoft, an international learning solutions provider, reinforces today its position as a leading compliance elearning solutions provider with the release of an extended range of tablet-ready health and safety courses targeted for the UK market. Nineteen UK courses have been added to the more than 300 Skillsoft environment, safety and health titles available in multiple languages worldwide.

The fast expanding coverage of UK compliance elearning already includes a full HABC endorsed Health and Safety Level 2 program, as well as COSHH and Fire Safety courses, suitable for both managers and staff alike. The additional nineteen titles extend the range with titles such as Lockout/Tagout, Defensive Driving Fundamentals, Hearing Conservation and Job Hazard Analysis and Skillsoft will release further additional health and safety courses this year.

In addition to releasing the new titles, Skillsoft is making available a guide to help UK-based organisations to review the effectiveness of their current health and safety programme. The guide is entitled: Getting the most from your workplace safety programme: Five things you may be overlooking. Organisations interested in reviewing the document are welcome to contact us to request a copy and to discuss their future needs.

While larger organisations can administer and report on employees' access to the courses through our Skillport or Academy Learning Platforms, smaller businesses can now use our UK ecommerce store to purchase licences and give employees access to the courses they need. This new store can be found at http://store.skillsoftcompliance.co.uk.

"We are delighted to announce the release of our new range of HSE courses", Mike Newton, Skillsoft's UK Director of Compliance commented. "Skillsoft has invested significantly in developing an extended and engaging portfolio of courses for the UK market and is now in discussion with several organisations regarding the development of additional topic areas moving forwards”.

Mike continues, “Many of our clients are now all in the process of migrating to the latest version of our learning management system and many are now planning to use our latest HSE solutions to extend the course library they offer to their employees. Any organisations that are not satisfied with the quality of their current elearning service are welcome to contact us to review our latest course offerings. We also welcome suggestions on new topics for future course development”.
