Reasons to Train Onsite
Savings: Eliminate travel time and expenses for staff. The more employees we train, the less it costs per employee.
Customized: OSHA requires site-specific training for compliance and requires your employees to be trained on their own machinery.
Flexible: You choose the date, time and location. Our trainers are available workdays, evenings and weekends. Training can even be presented in modules to meet your shift challenges.
Experience: Even competent safety professionals can't be expected to be knowledgeable on all safety topics and training requirements. Our instructors have been carefully chosen for their experience, as well as their years of formal education.
Record Keeping: All participants receive certificates of completion and/or wallet cards for successful completion of coursework. Competency tests are administered to document proficiency. The Council maintains back-up copies of all training documentation.
