NEBOSH launches new training course – Safety Simplified!

NEBOSH, one of the world’s leading health and safety awarding bodies, has launched a new three-day course – Safety Simplified – that uses augmented reality (AR) for the first time to bring safety learning to life.

The course opens up opportunities for people at all levels to learn about and contribute to improving health and safety in their organisations. Over three days, learners will gain useful, practical skills that will help them to identify and manage common health and safety issues.

Safety Simplified has been specifically designed to emphasise the practical nature of health and safety – the course is heavily activity focused and the use of augmented reality will help learners to visualise what they are being taught. There are numerous AR scenarios covering some of the most common safety issues such as noise and vibration, desk working, mechanical hazards, manual handling and working at height to name a few.

The addition of a simple risk assessment will also mean that learners can go back to work and make a real contribution, not just to their immediate workspace but to the wider culture and health and safety team.

Safety Simplified has also been tailored to ensure employers can adopt the course in-house to boost health and safety skills and culture across the whole workforce. It has been specifically designed to be applicable to any sector and simple to deliver with minimal set-up, for example the AR app and scenarios are free to download to any smart device from Google’s Play Store and the Apple App Store.

NEBOSH Chief Executive, Ian Taylor, said: “Every person, every day, everywhere has the right to work safely. By launching Safety Simplified, we’ve introduced a health and safety course that’s suitable for anyone in any organisation – after all, we all have a part to play in keeping the workplace safe.

“I’m particularly excited by the inclusion of augmented reality. It will really bring the course to life, help learners visualise the different hazards and make it accessible for everyone, no matter their learning style.”
