eSafetyFirst Canada announced the implementation of the first online occupational health and safety system that is designed for training a group of employees on their platform.
This reduces costs in comparison to a classroom training program, and allows the employer to address questions and failed assessment modules, all in real-time.
“Online training companies have this individual training approach where everyone invited to take a course have their accounts and can do that course whenever they please or are being asked to. While we also offer this type of training, the real challenge was developing the group training solution as there are no other examples of best practices you can learn from”, said Andrei Rebegila, CEO, eSafetyFirst Canada. “With our Group Training solution, you can create a group of employees (minimum of six) and they will all be able to complete the course, all at the same time. This type of training also works well paired with the hands-on practical evaluation, frequently required with equipment-related safety training, which is workplace-specific, so you don’t have to chase everyone individually and check if they have done their program, ask for their certificates, check on the testing results, etc., before moving to the practical part.”
This development came a week after a recent interview for TheSafetyMag, where Andrei Rebegila addressed one of the most frequently asked questions employers have: “Is online safety training as good as classroom training?”
