In a first for the industry, Inspire International has launched a new commercial vehicle workshop safety e- learning solution, E-Workshop. CVW finds out more.
Aimed at the commercial vehicle market, the E-Workshop solution has been designed and developed by Inspire International UK, the UK’s leading provider of health and safety management solutions for commercial vehicle workshops, offering 16 health and safety e-learning modules, plus many more which are soon to be released.
Recent statistics show that over half of companies expect an increase in their risk profile, with 71% expecting to have 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.
Inspire International UK is a family-run business, managed by Jagjeet Singh Virdee, Managing Director, and his father, Harvinder Singh Virdee, Technical Director. The father and son duo have provided commercial vehicle health and safety solutions to over 250 commercial vehicle workshops across the UK, working with well-established and leading businesses in the industry, including the likes of Keltruck, Scania (Great Britain), MAN Truck and Bus UK, Haydock Commercials, Ford and Slater Group, Europa Worldwide Group and RH Commercial Vehicles.
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.
He says: “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 with 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 with applicable health and safety regulations through the use of e- learning. E-Workshop is ideal for the current economic climate and will be the future of health and safety training within the commercial vehicle industry.”
The easy-to-use e-learning solution caters for all personnel, from directors to workshop controllers and technicians, educating them on the importance of effective health and safety management within a commercial vehicle workshop.
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.
Jagjeet Singh Virdee continues: “We are a one-stop shop for all areas of health and safety management that relates to commercial vehicle businesses. With the launch of e- workshop, we look to further strengthen our position as the experts in commercial vehicle health and safety solutions that are effective, efficient, pragmatic, and proven.
“We are the leaders in our industry and truly passionate about what we do, so we will continue to invest in developing solutions that will benefit both our existing and new clients. We plan to continue to listen to the needs of our customers and monitor any changes to the health and safety regulations to ensure our customers continue to introduce best practices in order to remain compliant.”
