Every HR Manager, director and business owner can be excused for feeling bewildered by the constantly changing and horribly onerous employment and health & safety laws.

One of the toughest challenges is just understanding the basics and keeping up to date - given so many other, often far more urgent, business challenges.

Is live online training the answer to this common problem? Welcome to the brave new world of "webinars"! Instead of fighting through traffic to reach a hotel training venue a "webinar" offers live training on your PC or laptop. All you do is log on to view both the presenter and accompanying PowerPoint! You pick up the audio either via your normal telephone or through your computer speakers.

Mark Ellis, CEO at Ellis Whittam, predicts the imminent demise of a lot of "old fashioned" face to face training: "As we all seek to save time, improve efficiency and knowledge webinars are the way to go! They offer many of the same benefits of an old fashioned hotel or conference centre seminar but with so many additional benefits too! Staff don't need to leave the office to attend. Training is often delivered free of charge or at nominal cost. If you miss a live event you can watch a recording of it later".

Ellis Whittam is one of several firms pioneering this type of training.

Its innovative "Club Sandwich" series of employment and health & safety law webinars is free of charge to business mangers, directors and owners.

Forthcoming "Club Sandwich" webinars include:

HANDLING LONG TERM ABSENCE - How to reduce the impact of long term sickness on your business.

THE ROLE OF RISK MANAGEMENT IN EFFECTIVE HEALTH & SAFETY MANAGEMENT - Your legal duty to carry out risk assessments; what constitutes a risk assessment; how to carry one out; who should do one; what to do with it when it is complete; and how to create a safety action plan.

PLAYING THE STRESS CARD TO AVOID DISCIPLINARY - Dealing with the problem employee that claims sickness through stress.

ACCIDENTS AT WORK - AVOIDING PROSECUTION AND PERSONAL LIABILITY - Strategies to put in place to minimise the risk of accidents at work and procedures to implement following an accident.
