Health, Safety and Environment

Industrial Environments

Due to the physical demands and the unique work environments of industrial workers, they can face more high-risk hazards than most other professions

Industrial workers can encounter hazards that have the potential to cause severe injury, extensive property damage and devastating environmental harm. One of the best methods to help protect industrial workers and their environment is to provide them with training on how they can work safely.

The safety, compliance and human resource courses for industrial workers give employees the knowledge that they need to do their jobs safely, introduce them to regulations that they must adhere to, and help them work well together. These courses provide valuable information which can be used to fulfill training requirements set by OSHA and other government agencies.

The courses are divided into a number of logical sections, each with its own quiz, so information is easily understood. The interactive formats allow trainers to collect employee performance information which can be organized through a powerful relational database and provides recordkeeping and tracking report capabilities.

The DVD programs contain a Presenter’s Guide, Employee Quizzes, Scheduling and Attendance Forms, and Training Certificates.

Languages: Programs are available in English and Spanish.

Formats: Web-based E-learning / DVD / Micro Learning (3-5 minute courses) / Adaptive-Learning
