What we did

Heriot-Watt University is one of the UK’s leading universities for business and industry with a reputation for innovative education, enterprise and leading research. The university has been a WorkRite customer since 2009. In this time their health and safety structures have been improved and in 2012 they released all of the courses on their WorkRite system again to ensure compliance across all sites.

In addition to the courses on stress, fire and general health and safety, their DSE assessment was set up so that end users could resolve more than 90% of workstation issues themselves. This, coupled with the fact they achieved more than 93% completion within eight weeks of roll-out is testament to the benefits the WorkRite tool offers.

We have also developed a bespoke course for the university covering the induction of contractors who come on to their site. This course enables the university to maintain a consistent level of training that can be recorded.

The WorkRite management system comes with the e-learning courses we supply. With its numerous automations and other time-saving features you can ensure all staff are up-to-date with their training and any assessments they are due to take. Coupled with the capability of linking directly to your existing LMS or HR management tool, WorkRite offers you and your staff a seamless learning and self-assessment experience.

WorkRite Management System

Our goals

  • Roll out the required e-learning to all staff
  • Improve workstation set-up to reduce MSDs
  • Reduce absenteeism and boost productivity
  • Create bespoke courses unique to client’s needs

We have found that the WorkRite software is efficient and effective, with the generation of management information easily managed. An e-learning platform for delivery of our basic health and safety training over multiple sites was essential; the WorkRite software enabled us to achieve that cost effectively. We are very happy with the ongoing support service and would gladly provide recommendations to anyone who is considering use of their products.
