The bespoke e-learning course, developed by Line Communications, covers environmental policies in addition to the usual health-and-safety issues.Originally, the course was destined to be used by 10,000 entry-level managers, but plans are now under way to offer it to all BP workers with computer access, bringing the total to between 80,000 and 100,000 employees and contractors. BP plans to offer the course around the organisation by December 2003, and is to launch an internal promotional campaign to support its introduction.
