Global Health and Safety
What you will learn
Today, all business is global, presenting unique challenges when your workforce is located in multiple locations or speaks languages other than English. Skillsoft’s global safety collection is geared for the worldwide learner – all region-specific information has been removed, and the courses are tailored to safety best practices. The solution includes a customizable Global Workplace Safety Orientation program, Global Safety Shorts created using topics from the Global Workplace Safety Orientation program, and a collection of Global Safety Principles courses developed using best safety practices.
Whether selecting the correct personal protective equipment gear or understanding ergonomics, these assets ensure employees at all levels of the organization, across any location, will be trained and prepared to meet the risks relevant to their work environment.
At Skillsoft, we design content to maximize comprehension, taking into account global language considerations and varying computer literacy levels. Each course provides audio to support learners who have a lower reading proficiency, are auditory learners, or where English is a second language.
With our training, employers can protect employees against common workplace hazards by improving their awareness of potential risks and testing the application of knowledge around the critical hazards and risk threatening their health and safety.
