As employers, we all try to make sure our staff are fully trained to do their job properly, be it sales, admin, on the warehouse floor, in the kitchen or in front of the classroom. Depending on the industry, there are many different variables to being able to do a job properly and safely in and out of your particular job description.
No matter where or in what type of office or building your staff work, there is a range of laws, standards and legislations to ensure everyone on-site is provided with the required fire, safety and emergency procedures along with ensuring overall workplace safety.
Business owners and managers are responsible for providing timely and up-to-date instruction in this area and there are considerable penalties – even jail terms if your business is found not to comply with the correct legislation. Previously ensuring all your staff and visitors had the appropriate training used to take significant time and resources, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Formiga1 now has access to online learning facilities that considerably cut down the cost and time required to get your staff and visitors up to speed with the latest safety training.
Training the old way takes time and resources
When you think about safety training, you’re probably picturing a classroom scenario where you need to get all your staff in the same room at the same time along with a safety trainer to complete a series of components and units to be compliant. This is not only inconvenient for your business, but also for your staff when there are deadlines, project timelines and jobs to complete.
New ways of training offer compliance in less time with lower costs
Formiga1 has recently put together a newly created evacuation planning & safety division to help our clients save time, money and ensure compliance. We can now deliver safety training through a range of different online systems that not only keep your workers safe but make sure everything you need to be recorded for your legislative requirements is in one, easy-to-use online interface.
How our online evacuation planning system works
Putting in place emergency and evacuation procedures are now even easier with Formiga1 Safety. Here’s how it works:-
- We visit your site
- We develop an online interactive version of your floor plans
- We overlay essential safety information onto the maps such as:-
- Emergency exits
- Fire equipment
- First-aid equipment
- Gathering/ Rally points
- Staff then complete online modules
When your staff complete online modules, their assessment scores and history of refresher courses can be stored in our easy to use online system. Everything your staff need to keep them safe in an emergency – be it fire, structural issues, flood, active shooter, storms, etc, along with all the essential information your business is needed to record for legislative requirements is readily available online.
The beauty of our online system is that employees, contractors and visitors will have a better understanding of your site-specific safety procedures. When combined with the fact that users can complete the training at their own pace – even off-site or at home means it’s convenient, cost-effective and efficient.
