Many companies are interested in adding an online component to their current safety/EHS training.
It makes sense. We already do so many things online, and we know that putting stuff online can make things easier, more efficient, less costly, more convenient, and more effective.
Why can’t the same be true with safety training? Well, it can be and it is, my friend.
Plus, by now we all probably have at least some familiarity with online safety training. Maybe you’ve seen and have been impressed by an online safety training course. Or maybe you’ve seen how online systems can keep track of and automate training assignments that workers must complete recurrently (such as every year for HazCom training). Or maybe you know how efficiently and effortlessly they can create and store records of completed training and even auto-generate reports on that training and deliver them to your email inbox automatically.
So in this article, we’ll take a look at one tool you can use in an online safety training solution: the learning management system, which is also known as the LMS. If you already know what an LMS is and how it relates to online safety training, you may learn some new stuff here. If you’re not aware of what an LMS is or how it’s related to online EHS training, this may be really eye-opening (and very welcome) news.
