What Is Training Compliance?
Training compliance is the discipline of ensuring workplace employee training requirements are met and tracked. This is especially important when training is mandated by local, state, federal or international standards. Today, a big part of Training Compliance is the technology that allows employers to identify employees in need of training, delivers training content on-demand, and manages the data needed to track and report on the success of training programs.
Why Pursue Training Compliance?
Training is an essential requirement of workplace regulations around the world; for instance, a broad range of OSHA standards contain specific language on what is considered effective training. Often, training is the first thing an investigator will look into following a workplace incident, which is one reason keeping accurate and up-to-date training records is key. Of course, more important than avoiding fines and penalties is protecting employees, and through it, the health of the organization. The benefits of technology in meeting training compliance include:
- A more skilled, productive, and engaged workforce
- The ability to verify training in real time across locations
- Expansive library of on-demand training modules
- Reduction in time spent on inefficient and repetitive manual tasks
- More time to focus on other critical EHS tasks
