The largest UK insurer uses Cobent to help customers improve health and safety

Norwich Union Risk Services, an integral part of Norwich Union, is helping its customers improve the standard of health and safety in the workplace with a new online training portal from Cobent.

Norwich Union Risk Services is using Cobent Learning Compliance Suite (LCS) to create, sell and deploy easy-to-use online training for a number of health and safety related topics to insurance brokers, insured business customers and any other organisation who might benefit from such training.

The portal, launched on 18th July 2008, makes full use of Cobent LCS’s high-security, industry standard e-commerce functionality alongside its market leading content management and deployment technology to provide a seamless ‘on-line’ learning environment for organisations of all sizes.

Cobent LCS will enable owners and employees to log-on, purchase and complete H&S training courses in a simple and straightforward environment, with easy access to class-leading training materials.

Mr John Phillips, Norwich Union’s Risk Services Training and Consultancy Manager, said: “The adaptability, scalability and above all, ease-of-use of the Cobent platform made it the obvious choice for us.

“The application has all the functionality we require, from online payment to end-user reporting, and allows us to roll-out our training message at a very competitive price. Cobent’s solution has already proven itself as the perfect platform for large scale e-learning applications, offering a high level of flexibility without being overwhelming for our customers.”

Howard Sears, Cobent’s CEO, added: “We are obviously delighted to announce this new partnership, as it illustrates once again how the inherent flexibility of Cobent LCS can make it suitable for almost any learning management requirement.

“The effort by Norwich Union Risk Services to deliver workplace health and safety training in support of an overall commercial insurance package is an exciting strategy and one that we are proud to be a part of.”

The Cobent LCS is a powerful set of modules designed to make enterprise wide learning easier to manage and control. LCS is a browser-based application that provides fully functional learning, content and training management, offering organisations the necessary tools to quickly and cost-effectively create, distribute and track training activities online and offline.

LCS consists of advanced tools that have been built in line with global compliance standards and in consultation with training managers, compliance managers and other business professionals who deliver and manage training daily.
