About these courses

Safetrac has partnered with Beam Australia to create a Working From Home Effectively course, which is broken into Employee and Manager modules.

Working from home, or remotely from the office, can seem ideal, but the reality is that it can be challenging from a professional and personal point of view.

Staff need to overcome many challenges, from focusing on your everyday tasks to ensuring that you are mentally and physically prepared to work productively when out of the office. As a manager, when you’re in the office, you can see what your team are doing and communicate with them face-to-face to manage tasks, reiterate goals, provide support and motivate them to succeed.

Safetrac’s ‘Working From Home Effectively’ course will assist staff to understand how to effectively set up a safe work environment, improve productivity and how to protect their mental health. For Managers, the course will assist to understand how to manage teams working remotely and how to lead them towards working efficiently and effectively.
