Recent statistics showcased that over half of companies expect an increase in their risk profile with 71 per cent expecting to increase investment in legal compliance, with the largest anticipated risk increase from health and safety. To address this, Inspire, through its E-Workshop solution, is offering a Covid-19 Return to Work programme, which explains the changes that have been introduced into the workplace and what employees must do to protect themselves and others from the spread of infection.

Jagjeet Singh Virdee, Managing Director at Inspire International UK explains why now is the time for businesses to invest in health and safety e-learning that is specific to their commercial vehicle workshop: “In light of Covid-19 and the challenges this presents Commercial Vehicle Dealerships now and over the next few years, we have worked with Senior Commercial Vehicle leaders to ensure they can maximise workshop hours/utilisation whilst complying to the health and safety regulations that are applicable to their operations.

“E-workshop is the UK’s first commercial vehicle specific health and safety e-learning solution that will help to ensure commercial vehicle dealerships remain compliant to applicable health and safety regulations through the use of e-learning.

Inspire advises that by investing in the e-learning training modules, it will ensure workshops remain compliant, workshop hours are maximised, the correct type of health and safety training for the correct job role is delivered and teams are educated to effectively avoid and manage health and safety within their working environment.
