    I’ve always been a fan of a multi-pronged approach to teaching safety. Sitting people in front of a TV and having them sign something at the end is rarely the best way to train people.

    Sure, the training costs more but can we all agree if it safes just one accident it was almost certainly worth it.

    I like what OSHA is doing here.

      Hi Sam, thanks for the comment and your take on training! We completely agree with the multi-pronged approach because not everyone learns in the same way. This is why we released PIG Training, which trains workers on safety and environmental issues in a manner that promotes understanding.
