Health & Safety e-Learning

With the support of ACRE, we have teamed up with our Village Hall scheme insurers, Ansvar Insurance, to develop a free eLearning resource for all our policyholders.  It is aimed at those with responsibility for managing health and safety in village halls.

Recognising that these are essentially low-risk premises, the unique content reflects the legal position affecting village halls.   It provides a basic introduction helping users understand their responsibilities and the common hazards they face.  They can then start to implement suitable precautions to suit their own circumstances.  Hopefully, this will be with some confidence and in a sensible, proportionate manner.

Ansvar have sought the advice of the Health & Safety Executive to ensure that the information provided is correct and up-to-date.

We sent out details of the facility by email at the end of 2018.  If you have not received this (we may not have your email address or the email may have been sent to a committee member with no health and safety responsibilities) and you would like to try out the facility, please let us know and we will arrange to send log-in details to you.  It only takes around 20 minutes to work through the module and it can be accessed as frequently as you wish.  Once you reach the end there is a short assessment on what you have learned and you can print out a certificate to show you have completed the course.

There is no charge for use of this unique resource and we would encourage all of our policyholders to make use of it to help them comply with health and safety requirements.
