Tampa (PRWEB) September 17, 2010 —
RedVector, Inc., the leading provider of online education for the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industries, has passed the 2,700 mark of total OSHA construction safety cards issued (the current number is 2,734). RedVector earned approval from OSHA for its online OSHA-10 hour Construction Industry Outreach Training certificate program in 2008. RedVector’s OSHA training program, which features 12 interactive course modules that cover basic safety categories found in OSHA 29 CFR 1910/1926, includes user activities that spot-check and reinforce knowledge within each course as well as post-lesson quizzes and a final exam.
Designed for construction workers, job supervisors, trade workers, project managers, and others involved in the construction industry, the OSHA training program lets students earn their Department of Labor (DOL) OSHA construction safety 10-hour card and includes a printable certificate of completion. Compliance with OSHA standards is a critical component of success in the building arena, and the program was an immediate success – underscoring the convenience and cost-effectiveness of undertaking continuing education online.
In 2010, the company introduced its 30-hour OSHA training certificate program, which covers in-depth OSHA safety topics such as Contractor’s Safety/Health, Work Zone Traffic Control, Reporting and Record Keeping, and The Competent Person in addition to standard topics like Fall Protection, Electrical, Struck By, Personal Protective Equipment, and more. Because it is self-paced and flexible and does not require travel, workers who can’t afford to lose productivity or might otherwise have difficulty finding the time for more extensive training have found RedVector’s 30-hour online OSHA Outreach Training program the key to earning their DOL 30-hour card.
RedVector’s OSHA training expert, Robert Layman, CHCM, said, “It’s always important for construction workers and those on a jobsite to have safety training, but in a job market as competitive as today’s, workers may find that it pays to have OSHA training under their belts going in. OSHA-trained workers are better prepared to recognize safety hazards, and that reduces the risk of accidents or injuries and adds additional value to them and their companies. Our 10 and 30-hour programs make it easy and convenient to stay safe on the job – and as it turns out, it’s also a way that they can gain a competitive edge.”
“RedVector is truly pleased with the success of the program,” says Ryan Sparks, RedVector’s Vice President of Content Development. “The ever-increasing migration of students from the classroom to the computer underscores our belief that online training, when delivered properly, is at least as effective as more traditional methods in most areas. Now that online education is available, when you factor in the convenience, ease of use, stress-free environment and cost-effectiveness, you begin to wonder why anyone would do it any other way.”
