Online Safety Training Buyer’s Guide

Online Safety Training Buyer’s Guide


Deciding on an online safety training solution is a big decision.

But it doesn't have to be intimidating or impossible. And there's no reason to simply guess blindly and hope you get a good one.

To help, we've created a free Online Safety Training Buyer's Guide Checklist that you can download at the bottom of this article. We think it will give you a good leg up on your search.

The author of the guide is a member of the ANSI/ASSP Z490 EHS Training Standard committee, helped to create the Z490.2 standard for online EHS training, and as of summer, 2021 is working with the Z490 committee to revise the existing Z490.1 standard for all EHS training--for more on the Z490 standards and revisions, register for our upcoming Z490 EHS Training Standards webinar or catch it later as an on-demand recording.

The guide is below--just click away to get a copy.

In this guide, we'll provide valuable information to help you and your organization make a better, more informed, more productive solution when you're searching out online safety and health training.
