Kingston, Wash.-based Arxcis, a full-service safety-training firm that offers on- and off-site training courses, customizable training kits on CD, as well as certified crane inspections, last week announced it now offers its classes online.
Equipment operators can take Hard Hat Online Training at work or at home, anywhere in the world. Using the Internet, an employee can work through a multimedia course at his or her own pace, using interactive diagrams, engaging formats and final tests to increase content retention and mastery.
“More traditional training can be very effective and should happen whenever it is practical,” said Myron Lee, Arxcis co-founder. “But the ease, convenience and cost benefits of online training make it possible for more employees than ever before to receive safety training. This makes employees and their worksites safer. This is the crux of the traditional training versus online training debate. Not only can online training offer cost and convenience benefits, but also it can save lives.”
According to OSHA, employers pay almost $1 billion per week to injured employees and their medical care providers.
“Most employers view safety training as an investment. Yet, tuition costs for many of the country’s training programs can be prohibitive,” Lee said. “We hope to alleviate this cost burden by providing excellent, affordable online training.”
With Arxcis’ Internet training, employers pay a small fee when an employee takes a class. The availability of the company’s OSHA-accredited expertise in an online format makes training in the public works, utility, government, construction, industrial and maritime industries more affordable for both public and private entities.
Also, online training reduces time away from the worksite. Employees with ready access to the Internet don’t have to commute to a class. Operators can complete the online training, which on average runs from one to two hours, during off-peak hours.
Available courses include:
- Telescopic Handler Forklifts
- Boom Trucks
- Articulated Boom Trucks
- RT and AT Cranes
- Utility Truck Cranes
- Self-Propelled Aerial/Scissor Lifts
- Pedestal Mounted Cranes
- Vehicle Mounted Aerial Lifts (Bucket Truck)
