eTools, online training saves time and money

The latest Hospital eTool, designed to help workers avoid common hazards in the healthcare industry, was posted to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Web site last week.

The new sonography and surgical modules featured in the Hospital eTool aim to keep employers and employees in the health care industry safe from injury or illness. This interactive eTool enable users to answer questions and receive reliable advice on how OSHA regulations would apply to their workplace.

OSHA’s eTools are stand-alone, Web-based training tools on occupational safety and health topics including:
  • Construction
  • Lockout/Tagout
  • Computer Workstations
  • Scaffolding
  • Teen Worker Safety in Restaurants

Depending on the nature of your business, blending computer and Web-based training with traditional methods can boost training ROI. Especially when budgets are strapped, online training may prove to be the most cost-effective and time-saving instruction method.
