The Answer to Your PPE (and Other) Training Needs

Yesterday’s Advisor reviewed an aspect of PPE that too often is given short shrift – proper maintenance. Today we look at a tool that can train your workers not only on the proper selection, use, and care of PPE, but also on more than 30 other core safety topics.

Before you can select appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), you must first determine the hazards to which your employees may be exposed. The PPE module in BLR’s new Employee Training Center (ETC) says that information about workplace hazards should be collected through a hazard assessment that includes:

  • Evaluating every job function in every department for potential hazards.
  • Preparing and using a checklist to determine if hazards are present. The checklist should cover hazards to the eyes, respiratory system, head, feet, and hands.
  • Determining what type of PPE will protect against the specific hazards found. For example, determine if safety glasses are adequate or whether the worker will need goggles.

This 28-slide audio presentation walks you through the entire PPE process — from hazard assessment to PPE selection and use, and, finally, to proper PPE maintenance. And it covers the topic from head to toe, encompassing eye and face protection, respiratory protection, head protection, hand protection, and foot protection.

Complete with detailed speaker’s notes and a quiz (to make sure the message got through), the PPE training module is just one of more than 30 safety training modules in the Employee Training Center.

These are all motivational, actionable programs — for both employees and supervisors — in such key areas as hazard communication, back safety, general workplace safety, bloodborne pathogens, OSHA requirements, and many more. The courses are kept up to date to reflect federal and state regulatory changes, and, what’s more, we add new programs continually.

This turn-key service requires no set up, no course development time, no software install, and no new hardware. Your employees can self-register, and training can be taken anytime, anywhere (24/7) with nothing but a PC and an Internet connection. Courses take only about 30 minutes to complete.

Just as important, the Employee Training Center automatically documents training. As trainees sign on, their identifications are automatically registered. And when the program is completed, the trainee’s score is entered. So, when you want to see who has or hasn’t yet trained on any subject, or look at the across-the-board activity of any one employee, it’s all there, instantly available to you, your boss, an inspector — even a plaintiff’s attorney.

Course certificates can be automatically generated from within ETC, and are automatically retained for record-keeping purposes. Rest easy knowing that your company is fully trained on current safety-related issues, and that your training efforts are fully documented.

The Employee Training Center also includes a similar selection of HR courses – you decide whether you want just the safety courses, the HR courses, or both the safety and HR modules.

And, from the standpoint of your accounting office (a truly important standpoint in these tight times), you always know exactly what training will cost, no matter how many programs you use or how many times you use them. There’s just one low annual fee – for unlimited training — calculated by the size of your workforce. Budget once and you’re done!

If it sounds like we’re excited about this new service, well, we are – and we think you will be, too. We urge you to sign up for a no-obligation demo by visiting the new Employee Training Center. Or, feel free to call our customer service people at 866-696-4827.
