Ledcor Technical Services
For Ledcor Technical Services, LTS, a division of The Ledcor Group of Companies, with growth came a need for a more focused integration of safety management and risk management. Understanding the risks of a project and planning for those possible risks is one area safety management and risk management intersect, according Rob Weiss, Director of Health, Safety and Environmental Protection at LTS.
Constructing New Possibilities
Growth from a few hundred employees in 2008 to almost 1.000 currently brought with it the challenge of getting all the new individuals through important safety training for compliance, safety and to mitigate risk.
With multiple locations to consider, Weiss, notes that it would take nearly a year to schedule 490 employees for three initial training courses. "Now, we can get those employees up to speed in two weeks," says e Weiss. "We tell them you have from March 1st to the 15th, for example, to go through the courses that are available online.
Because training is automated, and there is no need to rent facilities or fly staff to different locations to conduct classroom training. Weiss estimates that using Safetylogic saves LTS "hundreds of thousands of dollars a year" on training.
