Cardinus Risk Management is delighted to announce its 35 online eLearning courses have been updated to align with the latest  Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

This significant achievement underscores Cardinus’ dedication to providing accessible and user-friendly courses to everyone. This includes users with impairments to their vision, hearing, mobility, thinking and understanding.

Committed to accessibility

WCAG 2.2, established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), sets comprehensive standards to make web content more accessible. By adhering to these guidelines, Cardinus ensures that their educational materials can be effectively utilised by individuals with a wide range of disabilities, thereby fostering a more inclusive learning environment.

Matt Champ, Chief Technology Officer, Cardinus Risk Management, emphasised the importance of this development:

“We recognised the need to ensure our courses met the latest accessibility guidelines. WCAG covers not only visual and hearing impairments, but also cognitive, learning, language, and other disabilities. Following WCAG guidelines will ensure that our courses are user-friendly for anyone and everyone.”

Enhancing user experience

Cardinus serves numerous leading global companies, with their flagship Healthy Working ergonomics program being utilised by over 5 million users worldwide.

Jon Abbott, Global Director of Ergonomics at Cardinus, highlighted the company’s dedication to continuous improvement:

“We have a passion to deliver the best solutions we can for our clients and accessibility is one area that we needed to upgrade. This adds to our commitment to be the best solution in the market.”

The move to upgrade their eLearning courses aligns with Cardinus’ broader mission to provide comprehensive, user-friendly, and effective risk assessment and training solutions. By ensuring their courses meet the latest accessibility standards, Cardinus not only enhances the learning experience for users with disabilities but also sets a benchmark for other organisations in the industry.
