April 2016

There is no industry standard for how you or your organization handles your budget, so why settle for a one size fits all payment option from your vendor?  The popularity of subscription based pricing - where the customer pays a monthly fee to access content and software - has grown substantially over the past few years.  It's designed to be easy for customers...you pay a flat fee each month based on number of users or number of courses and can cancel or upgrade your subscription as you go or at the end of the contract term.  It certainly simplifies the process, but you may be paying for things you don't need or on the flip side, not getting enough of what you need.  Some customers may fall in the middle of two different subscription options.  A subscription only option certainly benefits the vendor.  They get your money each month (or in some cases, up front) no matter what while offering you zero flexibility.  But your needs, in terms of both content and learning management system (LMS) capabilities, are unique. 

Evolved Safety offers you multiple ways to access the content and tracking capabilities you need, as well as choice in how you pay for it.   Best of all, you can choose your content and your LMS from different vendors!  The sky is the limit with how you set up your training program, from content and delivery choices, budget needs, and payment options. 

  • Monthly Billing -
      Pay an annual fee to access the learning management system, we bill you each month for the amount of content you consume. 
  • Annual License -
      Select the content you need and number of users you have.  Pay for your training and learning management system access up front on an annual basis.  
  • Pay Per View - Pay for content as you need it. 
  • Active User License - Each user can access an unlimited amount of content for an annual, per user fee.  Licenses can be transferred to other users in the event of employee turnover.    
We have over 1,000 online training courses in our library and four learning management systems to select from and we'll work with you to find a solution that fits, rather than fitting you to our solution.  Let's talk about making your online training work for you.

12 and 15-Passenger Van Drivers and Administrators - Online Course
The U.S. Department of Transportation, or DOT, creates regulatory requirements for commercial drivers and the companies that employ them. There are situations where drivers of 12 and 15-passenger vans will be considered commercial vehicles, and must comply with DOT requirements. While much of the burden of meeting the DOT's requirements falls on drivers, company administrators play a vital part in keeping their companies in compliance. Learners who successfully complete this course should be able to:
  • Identify requirements for commercial drivers as defined by 49 CFR 380, Subpart E
  • Recognize DOT documentation requirements for qualified drivers and requirements for hours of service and driver violation notifications
  • How to properly participate in a DOT audit inspection, identify DOT vehicle inspection requirements, and identify DOT requirements for record retention

Mother Nature played a great April Fool's Joke on us in Michigan...with 1-3 inches of snow and 30 degree temps on April 2.  That being said, we know spring is around the corner, and it seems like we go from 50 degree days to 80 degree days in the time you can say heat index.  Almost 100% preventable with proper awareness and training, being proactive is key when it comes to heat related illness.  The CDC recommends the following to prevent heat related illness:  
  • Schedule jobs that are in hot environments during the coolest part of the day; when possible schedule maintenance and repair jobs in hot areas for cooler months
  • Acclimatize to a hot environment by progressively exposing yourself to the environment for longer periods
  • Drink cool water or liquids, avoiding drinks with large amounts of caffeine or sugar
  • Take rest periods with water breaks in a cool or shaded area
  • Wear light-colored, loose-fitting, breathable clothing such as cotton
  • Take note that personal protective equipment or clothing can make you warmer 
  • Monitor the physical condition of workers and co-workers 
Train now to prevent incidents later with multiple options for heat stress training in online, DVD and streaming video formats from Evolved Safety.
