Venture Programs announced today that it has introduced a new online safety learning management system through its risk management partner, IRISK Solutions. The system – available only for insureds in any of Venture’s programs – is designed to train employers and their employees in key areas that will improve their business while making safety a top priority
The learning management system features a library of 300 highquality web training courses, many of which are available in a bi-lingual format. As part of its offer, Venture provides access to 17 safety training courses for its insureds, with the remaining courses available for purchase. Among the base training courses covered are Safe Lifting, Slip and Fall Prevention, Lockout and Tagout, Hazard Communication, Management Courses, and Golf Cart Safety.
“The learning management system is one of many tools available to Venture Programs customers in developing an effective loss prevention program for their employees,” said Girija Trainor, chief operating officer of IRISK Solutions. “It is intended to provide up-to-date insight and assistance to what an organization – as an employer – can do to improve safety and accident prevention efforts.”
Managers can assign and track course completion while employees are trained in a variety of topics that are specific to their particular department. Each course has been created and reviewed to assure that critical knowledge has been covered, and to keep employees engaged and learning. Every course is based on a set of carefully defined learning objectives, which become the foundation for the course while all of the presentations, interactions and evaluations tie back to these learning objectives.
The training system is part of customer risk management resources offered to all Venture Programs customers. These resources also include a Risk Management Library with access to a wealth of loss prevention articles, case studies, incident reports, and trend reports to help insureds understand the financial consequences of certain exposures.
