Workplace hazards never take a break. Fortunately, neither do the Fund’s safety training opportunities. Through its partnership with Scenario Learning, The Fund provides the SafeSchools and SafeColleges, eLearning systems designed specifically to prevent injuries to staff and save you time and money! These online training courses simplify how your employees receive training and resources that address injury exposures.
Courses are written by experts in the occupational health and safety field and are tailored specifically for teachers, administrators, and staff, which means you don’t have to waste time adapting the training to your organization – it’s immediately ready to roll out to your staff. In 2016, SafeSchools was named a District Administration Magazine Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product for the seventh consecutive year.
With SafeSchools and SafeColleges, you can also track your staff’s training with robust administration tools to record data, monitor progress, download reports, and view or print certificates.
The Fund has selected eleven courses on some of the most common types of injury exposures, including:
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Electrical Safety
- Hazard Communications: Right to Understand (GHS)
- Slips, Trips, & Falls
- Special Education, and more
There is no charge for Workers’ Compensation Pool (Fully Funded and Aggregate Deductible) members to take advantage of the training, and Administrative Services Only (ASO) members receive a substantial discount. Community college members can access training through SafeColleges. Select courses in both programs can be accessed at any time.
Now is the time to think about in-service training to keep your employees working safely! To see a full list of courses and for more information on how you can get started, visit the Fund's SafeSchools web page.
