How many hours out of your week does your in-house safety training program eat-up?
If you’re living in Excel spreadsheets, tracking down your employees for progress reports, and dealing with tech issues one after the other, your safety training program is taking up too much of your time. Your safety training program should work for you, not against you. Investing in a Learning Management System (LMS) can save you time best spent on more pressing issues.
Learning Management Systems have been around for decades. They’re a fairly recent arrival to the transportation industry, though. So, if you’re like most safety training folks, you could probably use a little break down of what an LMS is.
First and foremost, a learning management system is a delivery platform for your company’s education and training. It hosts your safety training courses, plays videos, and utilizes gamification like interactive quizzes and educational activities.
An LMS not only hosts your education and training materials, but it helps you manage them as well. You can assign training to specific employees, track their progress and usage, and give certificates of completion for employees who pass.
Finally, an LMS is a computer system. In other words, it’s a software program just like Powerpoint or Outlook. Powerpoint creates slideshows, Outlook sends emails, and an LMS organizes and delivers your company’s training materials.
