IOSH/NEBOSH eLearning as good as face-to-face training

If you want your health and safety training to have a positive impact on behaviour, then it “has to be delivered face-to-face”. To reduce the hassle of getting everyone in the same at the same time, organisations have tried eLearning. They found that, whilst it ticks the box, it lacks the impact a good classroom course can have.

Until now.

Compassa’s awarding-winning use of interactive video technology brings face-to-face training to the eLearning environment. Their IOSH Managing Safely and NEBOSH Incident Investigation courses are delivered by an engaging, entertaining, and charismatic tutor in a series of video tutorials. Within the videos are exercises, activities, and questions the learner must answer. It transforms the passive learning experience into an active experience.

And thanks to all the humour, the courses are really good fun!

But does it work? Does this eLearning approach come anywhere close to having the same impact as a traditional face-to-face course?

Will Taylor, Compassa’s Founder and MD, thinks so. He said, “We collect data from learners before and after the course. We ask them how committed they are to health and safety before the course. And after they have completed it, we ask them the same question. The data consistently shows people feel much more committed: a 42% increase in levels of commitment towards health and safety after completing our video course for IOSH Managing Safely.”

Hugh Pidgeon, Health and Safety Manager for Wilkin Chapman, says his experience supports what the data says. “I feel this eLearning course has delivered greater impact than a classroom course. They’ve had the time to assimilate and take on board all the information. The staff undertaking this course have made my life easier.”
