British Safety Council, Olympic Games Project

Webanywhere delivered a cloud-hosted, fully supported learning platform for the British Safety Council (Britsafe) to deliver Health & Safety training programs to around 125,000 contractors working on the London 2012 Olympic Games.


Britsafe is a leading global Health & Safety Charity offering a wide range of health, safety and environmental training and qualifications at all levels. Britsafe required a robust LMS (Learning Management System) solution to deliver online Health and Safety training to contractors working on site during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Learners using the site need to securely access the video- and quiz-based training materials from various locations (both overseas and in the UK) and in five languages (including Spanish, Russian and Chinese). This presented significant challenges for providing the highest possible accessibility, availability and performance for diverse audiences with differing learning requirements.

Because of the diverse audience needs, the LMS proved a versatile option for the client to use for its new ‘Be Safe – London 2012’ learning platform. Learners can watch a series of videos – created in partnership with a third party content development specialist – and answer a quiz specific to key areas of workplace Health & Safety best practice. Upon successful completion of the course, learners receive a certificate.

We chose to partner with Webanywhere because of their unique ability to truly ‘stretch beyond’ to deliver a highly complex project within budget and very tight timescales.
