The modern supply chain has become more complex, and the industry is continuing to adapt to the ever-changing economy. Dusty warehouses have been replaced by state-of-the-art facilities, bigger trucks move more and bigger loads, and the demand for skilled workers is higher than ever. But as the industry expands, all of these changes have led to new occupational hazards and it’s more important than ever that employee safety be a company’s number one priority.
Whether employees are driving a truck or working in a distribution center, the Transportation and Warehouse Safety, Compliance and Human Resource courses are a great way to ensure that they have the knowledge they need to keep themselves safe at work, introduce them to the OSHA, FMCSA and DOT regulations that apply to their jobs and help employees work well together.
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
