Of the e-learning packages that I have reviewed, this is the best I’ve seen. I had the opportunity to tailor the course to Airbus’ requirements by appearing in the course myself, conducting video introductions.
We previously booked a trainer to deliver the Managing Safely course in a classroom environment. It was a slow process: first we had to get enough people signed up to be able to run a class and, once it was arranged, people would drop out. Also, as the course was over a 4-day period, people would get pulled out in order to deal with the demands of the business. I found this whole process inefficient. It was also hard to arrange the training of staff based abroad: we either had to send a trainer abroad, which is expensive, or the staff member had to arrange the time to travel back, which was highly inconvenient.
The advantage of this e-learning course is its flexibility. Staff can be set up with access to start the course the same day as they sign up for the course. The course can be fitted around work because it doesn’t need to be completed all at once. This course is going to save Airbus a fortune.

Cleveland Police have been a client of the company Safety4Business for almost 3 years. We engaged with the company in order for them to facilitate the provision of e-learning to our Police Managers, both Officers and Staff.
The company was selected because the product “Managing Safely” is accredited by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and offers a full e-learning provision with tutorial support to the delegates. The 24hr support is especially significant to Cleveland Police as many of our Managers are working shifts and prefer to work through their e-learning during their late-evening or night duty. It is therefore comforting to them to know that support is available at these unsocial times.
Once purchased, the full weight of the company’s administration support was put in action, and as a customer we were immediately made to feel part of the Teaching4Business” family. Local induction sessions were arranged and delivered by the T4B support team in Cleveland.
With company administrator rights I could track the progress of the managers. Notwithstanding this in-house facility, numerous telephone and e-mail requests were always dealt with promptly and efficiently by the staff at Safety4Business. Particularly useful were the monthly progress reports and spreadsheets.
Feedback from the delegates has been very positive. Access to the company web site and learning facility has been quick and simple to process either through the Police network links, directly from home or elsewhere. The product is reported by the delegates as easy to use with high-quality graphics and video streaming. All of the delegates stated that they had learned significantly as a result of the experience and would recommend the product. The majority thought that it was relevant to their role or function in the Police Service.
Cleveland Police are looking forward to a continued relationship with Teaching4Business/Safety4Business and to rolling out the Managing Safely training course to a further significant number of Managers in the organisation.

Working with your team has enabled us to build training interventions of real impact. The bespoke component to it allows the candidates to hear the underpinning safety message from their own managers, which has had an even better effect than envisaged when we started.
Their ongoing support with the administration for candidates has made it very easy for us to get high quality, externally accredited training to people whose role has traditionally made it very difficult to release for traditional courses.
I can strongly recommend that anyone looking to have a low cost, high-impact edge to their training considers their bespoke accredited on line delivered courses.
