Eric Hansen, Safety Manager at Alberta Processing Company, needed to streamline the Tool Box meetings supervisors gave to their employees. “It took a lot of time to put together these meetings,” says Eric. “Selecting topics, researching and compiling content, then distributing it to the supervisors at multiple locations was an onerous and imperfect process. We really needed a way to simplify the meetings and integrate more interesting, relevant content into them.”
All the time spent putting together the Tool Box meetings left little time for Eric to keep apprised of the latest safety compliance legal updates. “I also needed a resource that had complete Due Diligence documentation and kept us apprised of any legal changes to ensure our safety program is compliant,” adds Eric.”
“SafetyNow has simplified and streamlined our Tool Box meetings – they take way less time to create and include great content that we didn’t have access to before,” says Eric. SafetyNow’s simple eLearning assignment system also resulted in much more active participation by the employees.
“Since employees are able to access eLearning through the internet, participation has skyrocketed and employees are much more aware of the safety program and also do a much better job at following safety protocols,” adds Eric.
SafetyNow’s regular legal updates and comprehensive Due Diligence documentation has also helped Eric stay compliant. “SafetyNow does a great job of notifying me whenever there is a legal change – and many times even before the change is even finalized so that I can prepare. The Due Diligence documentation is also quite extensive and easy to understand,” adds Eric. “Overall we are very impressed by SafetyNow and it has helped us tremendously – I highly recommend it to any safety professional.”
