How we help
Transform your approach to training
The business impact of poor health and safety management can be significant: reduced productivity, higher staff turnover, damage to your reputation, and even fines and prosecution. Of course, the primary concern is the welfare of your workforce.
Providing health and safety training to your managers and employees is not only a legal requirement but will develop confidence and awareness of critical risk management topics, reducing the potential for costly safety incidents.
- 100+ courses covering Health & Safety, compliance, HR and soft skills topics
- Boost employees’ skills, knowledge and confidence with refresher courses
- Keep training costs down with unlimited access to a full range of relevant material
- Monitor training progress at a glance, including individual scores and who needs to re-sit
- Demonstrate commitment to employee development with training certificates
Cost-effective, time-efficient employee development
At Ellis Whittam, we understand that taking time out for employee training isn’t always possible. Nevertheless, as an employer, you want to know that your staff are fully equipped to undertake their duties confidently and compliantly – and that your business is protected – without affecting productivity or spending a fortune.
e-Learning is the perfect solution. Not only is it more cost-effective than classroom training, but it keeps downtime to a minimum, puts employees in charge of their own development, and allows training to be completed at a pace that suits each individual and with minimal disruption to their daily work role.
"I would like to thank Ian and everyone involved in making this course happen especially during these difficult times. I found the online course was delivered very well and professionally and with lots of interaction from other students. Overall great course, very informative thank you very much."
Common e-Learning queries and questions about our course offering, answered by our Health & Safety specialists.
What types of courses are available?
Our ever-growing library of e-Learning courses currently covers over 100 topics, including Health & Safety courses such as Accident Reporting, Risk Assessment and First Aid; compliance courses such GDPR, Anti-Money Laundering and the Bribery Act, and soft skills courses such as Communication, Leadership and Change Management. We also offer an extensive range of HR courses, including Equality & Diversity, Sexual Harassment and Social Media Use. Download the full course catalogue.
Who is e-Learning suitable for?
Everyone, whether they work part-time, full-time or from home can take advantage of web-based learning. You can choose what courses to assign and who to assign them to – some courses may be applicable to employees, some may be more suited to managers and some may be relevant to both.
How are courses assigned?
Managers will have the ability to assign relevant courses to individuals based on the specifics of their role and their training needs. They can then monitor each person’s progress and see scores at a glance.
Can we set our own pass scores?
Yes, unlike some online training options, with e-Learning you can set your own pass score for each course to suit your requirements.
I have a particular course in mind but don’t see it listed. Can you help?
We offer a variety of specialist courses available upon special request. If you don’t see the course you’re looking for in our standard course library, speak to our e-Learning experts on 0345 226 8393.
Can you deliver classroom training, too?
Yes. We can deliver IOSH-accredited training courses for employees, managers and directors, as well as our own range of health and safety training courses, both of which can be delivered at your premises or off site at a location of your choice. We also offer expert-led HR training courses for managers.
How much do the courses cost?
All of our e-Learning courses are free for the first year when you purchase our Health & Safety or Employment Law & HR managed service. This means you’re not paying per head or per course, which not only keeps down but gives you complete cost certainty over your training expenses. This is particularly handy if your workforce is growing, as you won’t need to purchase extra licenses, giving you exceptional value for money.
Do you have training that covers COVID-19 and its implications?
Yes. We’ve recently added three brand-new courses: COVID Response for Leaders, COVID Response for Managers, and COVID Response for Employees. These are designed to help leaders work with their managers and employees to create a COVID-secure workplace and provide guidance on identifying and assessing the risks of COVID-19 transmission. We’ve also added 14 refresher courses to help employees get back to work with renewed safety awareness.

We do more than just e-Learning...
Accident and Incident Investigation
An accident in the workplace is every employer’s worst nightmare. We can help to guide your investigation, advise on corrective action and protect your interests in the event of regulatory enforcement.
Can you help us prepare an accident investigation report?
Yes. This can be tricky to get right, especially as once you reach conclusions and set out the actions you have taken, the document is disclosable to the other side in the event of a personal injury claim or prosecution. We’ll help you stick to the facts, keep opinion separate, and make sure the report is presented in a way that protects your best interests and, most importantly, identifies the things that need to be put right to prevent reoccurrence.
We have been written to by the regulator regarding a health and safety incident. Can you help?
Yes. In the event of a serious accident or emergency, we will support your investigation and advise you on your communications with the enforcing authority. We will be there to help mitigate damage, guide you and support you. If you have received a letter from the regulator, we can help you to formulate a response until legal advice is required, in which case (if you have chosen to take it) our Legal Expenses Insurance is activated.
