TORONTO, March 30, 2016 /CNW/ - eCompliance Management Solutions Inc. and Convergence Training announced today that they will be joining forces. Both groups share a common goal: to help provide employers in at-risk industries with a more convenient and cost-effective way to train employees and improve workplace safety.
Training is an integral part of workplace safety, and ensuring that all employees are properly trained plays a significant role in preventing workplace incidents. Statistics released by Ontario's Ministry of Labour and OSHA in the US indicate that proper safety training can reduce workplace incidents by 70%.
"We are really excited about the new partnership," said Adrian Bartha, CEO of eCompliance. "By partnering with Convergence Training, we are now able to offer an extensive library of over 150 training courses to customers across Canada and the US. This allows us to play a crucial role in ensuring that all employees in at-risk industries are able to easily access and complete training as and when they need to."
eCompliance Safety Software offers a subscription-based model that allows employers to secure annual licenses allowing their employees full access to a library of eLearning or online training courses. Convergence Training, a US-based company, is a division of Capstone Technology, a global provider of a wide range industrial and manufacturing technology solutions. Specializing in development of eLearning content and enterprise-level learning management software, Convergence Training is a major producer of occupational health and safety training courses serving many industries, including construction, energy, mining, paper, and utilities.
Through the partnership with Convergence Training, eCompliance is now able to offer very popular, in-demand training for a number of industries including: Bloodborne Pathogens, Fire Safety, Personal Protective Equipment, Lockout Tagout, Ladder Safety, and Forklift Safety.
Randy Kohltfarber, owner and president of Convergence Training, further explains: "Our relationship with eCompliance represents some of our strategic strength as an eLearning producer. Convergence has always focused heavily on the quality of our training content to ultimately provide a superior learning experience. And we feel that eCompliance shares those values."
Online training allows employees to take training as soon as they require it, from the comfort of their computer. Since eCompliance's partnership with Convergence Training significantly increases the variety of courses available through the eLearning subscription, employees using eCompliance safety software will be able to take their required training immediately; therefore, eliminating the gap between when training is required and when training is received.
Employees in at-risk industries often require multiple safety training courses before they are prepared to start work. eLearning courses are typically purchased on an individual basis, and while they tend to be more economical than traditional classroom training, the cost of multiple courses for multiple workers can add up. By partnering with Convergence Training and broadening the selection of courses available, the subscription model will have the ability to start helping more companies significantly reduce their training budgets and strengthen their safety programs.
eCompliance is an innovative, mobile and cloud-based platform, designed by health and safety experts for health and safety experts. eCompliance was founded to reduce workplace incidents by digitalizing company's safety programs and providing a better means of collecting, sharing and reporting on real-time safety data. Not only does eCompliance reduce the administrative burden on safety professionals but it also provides a 360º view of safety performance so safety leaders have immediate access to the information they need to make important decisions to reduce employee and corporate risk and drive business forward.
