How we help
Transform your approach to training
The business impact of poor health and safety management can be significant: reduced productivity, higher staff turnover, damage to your reputation, and even fines and prosecution. Of course, the primary concern is the welfare of your workforce.
Providing health and safety training to your managers and employees is not only a legal requirement but will develop confidence and awareness of critical risk management topics, reducing the potential for costly safety incidents.
- 250 courses covering Compliance, Health & Safety, Wellbeing and Performance topics
- Boost employees’ skills, knowledge and confidence with refresher courses
- Keep training costs down with unlimited access to a full range of relevant material
- Monitor training progress at a glance, including individual scores and who needs to re-sit
- Demonstrate commitment to employee development with training certificates

We offer a holistic catalogue of courses and different ways of delivering them
Why waste time covering old ground? With our adaptive courses, learners are given a pre-assessment to gauge their current understanding and knowledge gaps. Based on this, courses are then automatically tailored to their individual learning needs for maximum impact.
Cost-effective, time-efficient employee development
At Ellis Whittam, we understand that taking time out for employee training isn’t always possible. Nevertheless, as an employer, you want to know that your staff are fully equipped to undertake their duties safely and compliantly – and that your business is protected – without affecting productivity or spending a fortune.
e-Learning is the perfect solution. Not only is it more cost-effective than classroom training, but it keeps downtime to a minimum, puts employees in charge of their own development, and allows training to be completed at a pace that suits each individual and with minimal disruption to their daily work role.
Common questions about our e-Learning courses.
Are the courses accredited?
Our courses are CPD certified and approved by RoSPA.
Do learners receive certificates?
Yes. Certificates are automatically generated via LearningNest when a user successfully completes a course.
How often do you upgrade content?
Our courses are regularly updated and maintained; any legislative changes affecting our content are made straightaway and topic areas are refreshed every 18-24 months.
Are courses mobile-friendly?
Our courses are responsively designed and fully accessible on mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop devises. Our MyAstute app also allows content to be downloaded and accessed via a mobile device, allowing for offline access to content, with results automatically synced with the platform when next in internet connectivity.
Are the courses specific to industry sectors?
Our courses have been created as general awareness modules suitable for any industry, so don’t specifically align to one sector.
What is the average run time of a course?
The average length of a course varies depending on the style of course, with formats available to suit all requirements. Our Detailed Study courses, which are typically longer and more detailed, take between 30 minutes to one hour to complete. Immersive courses are typically between 10 and 30 minutes in duration, and courses in our Take 5 series are typically five minutes in duration. We then have some Adaptive and Diagnostic Assessments that provide personalised training paths, meaning each user will have a personal run time depending on their current knowledge level; this ranges from 10 minutes to one hour and 15 minutes.
Do your courses have an assessment?
Our Detailed Study, Immersive and Adaptive courses have assessments built in to assess and record users’ comprehension of the learning; these are pre-set to a pass rate of 80%. Our Take 5 courses have an assessment built in to aid the learning process, but these assessments don’t contain a pass mark.
Can you report on completion?
Yes. LearningNest comes with a full analytics area that has a wide variety of reporting capabilities, which includes a visual dashboard, standard reports, and a report builder, to ensure the data required is accessible. Using the xAPI format to capture completion data allows granular data to be stored, such as question-by-question responses from users, allowing greater insights to be made.

We do more than just e-Learning...
Accident and incident investigation
An accident in the workplace is every employer’s worst nightmare. We can help to guide your investigation, advise on corrective action and protect your interests in the event of regulatory enforcement.
Can you help us prepare an accident investigation report?
Yes. This can be tricky to get right, especially as once you reach conclusions and set out the actions you have taken, the document is disclosable to the other side in the event of a personal injury claim or prosecution. We’ll help you stick to the facts, keep opinion separate, and make sure the report is presented in a way that protects your best interests and, most importantly, identifies the things that need to be put right to prevent reoccurrence.
We have been written to by the regulator regarding a health and safety incident. Can you help?
Yes. In the event of a serious accident or emergency, we will support your investigation and advise you on your communications with the enforcing authority. We will be there to help mitigate damage, guide you and support you. If you have received a letter from the regulator, we can help you to formulate a response until legal advice is required, in which case (if you have chosen to take it) our Legal Expenses Insurance is activated.
