UCC e-H&S Training (Staff)- Instructions

At present there are two (2) e learning H&S courses available to UCC staff. These relate to

  1. Workstation Ergonomics VDSE (VDU) course (introduced to UCC in 2007), 
  2. a UCC bespoke e-Fire Safety Course (introduced in 2009)

The SHWW Act 2005 places an obligation on all employees to co-operate with their employer and attend necessary safety training that their departments may specify and assist the University to comply with its statutory obligations.

Staff may now complete both of these on-line e- Safety H&S Training Courses in a flexible manner. To avail of these courses staff must have a valid UCC staff email address and must self register at:

http://o-las.net/logins/companyLogin/5144

The registation instructions are contained in the link given at at the end of this section. 

Each staff member may complete these courses whilst seated at their own PC. Each course may be undertaken directly once the staff member completes a simple self registration \ enrolment online .  Each staff member is entitled to complete each course singularly on a 3 year cycle.

The Health and Safety Office introduced a refresher facility in Q1 of 2013 whereby staff who have previously completed these e-courses will be automatically notified, by e-mail, of an opportunity to undertake a full refresher course (upon/ after the three year anniversary of first completion has passed). This refresher facility is triggered on the 3 year anniversary (or longer than 3 years in the initial cycle of refreshers) of course completion.

 Note:

The unique UCC staff email addresses which each user registered on first use is the means of notification and access.  

The Health and Safety Office also intends to launch a e learning hazardous substances/chemical awareness course in 2015 as part of the expansion of  e-learning health & safety training service for UCC Staff.

As of the 8th May 2012 UCC migrated to an updated version of the e-learning delivery platform OLASv2.   The new version has enhanced functionality.
