WorkSafe are proud to announce that since the launch of our digital packs we have saved:
- 29,152 delivery miles – more than a trip around the entire world!
- 283 KGs of paper – equivalent to the weight of 81 manikins!
Working alongside the United Nations 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, we are pleased to report the huge savings achieved so far. We remain on track to reduce quantities of hard copy materials by 2025, a target set in our sustainability policy.
WorkSafe’s digital student packs have been instrumental in providing an economical and environmentally friendly solution for teaching first aid.
How do the digital packs work?
Digital student packs are delivered via email with uniquely coded evaluation forms.
Assessment forms are available to download in the instructor portal, with first aid reference material accessible through our Student Zone.
Our Student Zone is available on our website for students to access first aid information, rather than locating a reference book. Lifesaving advice is a click away, with easy to access subject pages, illustrations and treatment advice to reference during first aid courses.
Students can continue to use the zone for reference material after their course.
What have our Instructors said about our digital packs?
“I think it’s the way forward as people are coming away from paper, it also makes it easier for me to add 1 extra if someone books in last minute without thinking about the cost of postage.”
“Yesterday I was able to purchase, download and print some [packs] off in a hurry, rather than remembering to order them so far in advance. They also take up a lot less room and there’s less waste from packaging”
Would you use them again? “Yes, because, as a charity, we are very keen to cut down on our carbon footprint.”
Together we can do more!
We are so excited by what we have achieved so far with the launch of our digital packs and how this has reduced our carbon footprint. Currently 46% of our Paediatric courses are sold digitally and 17% of our Emergency First Aid at Work.
Can you help to make a difference by going digital too?
