Learning Management System: 

  • Automated, centralized learning administration and company specific solutions
  • Allows field employees and supervisors to fit training into their existing schedules so that they can keep project schedules on track  (ie., employees won't have to stop work to sit in a classroom all day; they can log on and off the website as needed 24/7)
  • Allows safety management to assign specific training courses to each employee according to their tasks and associated hazards (instead of the same courses to all employees in a classroom setting)
  • Frees up safety personnel's time to perform other important tasks instead of extensive training, tracking and record keeping
  • Management benefits from employee tracking and record keeping database and can generate reports on this data to provide to corporate post accident training can be assigned immediately as a step to prevent reoccurrence.

It is easy to use; (member firms only) log on to and get started.
