Safety is about more

Than just being compliant

For more than 20 years, SafetySkills has been a leader in creating effective safety training content. Now we are offering a full suite of tools that serves to strengthen our existing platform.

No matter how many employees your team includes, and no matter your past safety record, SafetySkills Empower can help you create an intuitive, functional and effective safety training program.

Dashboard

Your Dashboard provides an at-a-glance view of training assignments and completions, along with both learning management and incident management metrics.

Settings

The Empower platform offers a simple process to create and update worksites, employees, job activities, hazards and safety controls that can be tailored for any industry.

Users

Every company can apply numerous attributes to their learners, such as department or job title, to create the right learning groups for their specific needs, making assigned training a breeze.

Integrated Tools at Your Fingertips

Learning Management System

At SafetySkills, creating the best safety training content possible has always been our key focus. Our simple and effective training is what we’ve become known — and trusted — for, and nothing is changing with the introduction of Empower.

  • User-friendly navigation and multiple language options
  • Dozens of new and updated courses released each quarter
  • 3D animation and relatable scenarios to keep the learner’s attention

Behind the scenes, those with administrative permissions can easily assign training to individuals or to groups, using custom fields to easily differentiate learners. Courses can also be auto-assigned, making it easy to get most, or even all, of your team’s training ready to go for the entire year and beyond.

Incident Management System

Even with all the safety training in the world, accidents still happen. When they do, Empower makes the incident reporting process a breeze, with a step-by-step interface that means anyone, not just a safety professional, can fill out this important information in a clear and consistent manner.

  • Easily fill out a report to note the incident details and attach photos or videos to create a complete record
  • Conduct a root case analysis to determine the causal factors of an incident using a fishbone diagram, the 5 Whys, or both
  • Assign Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPAs), including SafetySkills training, to any incident factor

Having a complete report on record not only ensures each incident is resolved properly but it also helps you to see where additional training or other safety precautions may be needed.

Job Hazard Analysis

A job hazard analysis (JHA) is one way to identify and work to correct potential dangers in your specific workplace. Conducting a JHA will help you understand the hazardous jobs in your workplace, what those hazards entail, and corrective and preventive measures you can take to reduce or completely eliminate the likelihood of incidents.

  • An easy step-by-step process walks you through the full JHA
  • Hundreds of hazards and controls come pre-loaded in Empower
  • Add custom controls to address your specific processes

JHAs are great first steps to building, or updating, any safety program. Empower makes conducting multiple JHAs quick and easy, which will not only save you time but it could end up protecting both your workers and your company by avoiding future potentially devastating accidents.

JHA Briefing

A major goal of Empower is to get every organization seeing safety as an everyday topic rather than simply a compliance necessity. One way we have done this is by introducing JHA Briefings, which make it easy for your teams to hold group discussions over targeted content instead of over generic safety topics that may not apply.

  • Crafted to address the hazards and controls of your specific worksite and job tasks
  • Utilize pre-populated hazard and control descriptions for consistent messaging
  • Walk through the full JHA Briefing and track employee attendance on any device

Because the descriptions are populated ahead of time, there is no need for a safety professional to be on-site to conduct every JHA Briefing. This straightforward, easy-to-use feature could change the way your team approaches daily safety at any job site.

Toolbox Talk Session

Toolbox talks have become increasingly more commonplace among safety professionals. These group sessions have many names but their goal is the same: introduce topics that are relevant to that group of workers and their job functions.

  • Choose from more than 1,000 courses, with over 75% being under 20 minutes long
  • Each session includes quiz questions that help demonstrate employee knowledge
  • Attendance can count toward employee training within the SafetySkills LMS

Effective safety training has always been at the core of what SafetySkills offers, so you can trust that our toolbox talk sessions contain crucial information provided in an engaging, memorable way. Each session can be displayed on any device, whether in an office or on a remote jobsite, maximizing your training potential.

OSHA Reporting

We created each feature of the Empower suite with our clients in mind, carefully considering what their safety program might entail and what we can offer to make their jobs easier. One thing we knew we needed to simplify was the OSHA reporting process.

  • Easily complete the OSHA Form 301, the OSHA 300 Log and the OSHA 300A
  • Much of the information is auto-populated from your company information and your incident reports
  • Quickly identify which information needs to be reported to OSHA and which needs to be retained for your own records

Note that, unlike the forms noted above, severe injuries and fatalities must be reported directly to OSHA (severe injuries within 24 hours and fatalities within 8 hours). All employers under OSHA jurisdiction must report these types of incidents; there are no exemptions here.

Audits & Inspections Mockup

A big part of safety management is accident prevention, and conducting thorough safety audits and inspections is a smart way to prepare against occupational hazards. Empower makes it easy to build, complete and save audit and inspection checklists for as many facets of your company as needed.

  • Create customizable templates addressing the specific equipment and situations associated with your worksite and job tasks
  • Assign action items directly from the audit or inspection form if anything is not up to your organization's standard
  • All forms offer the ability to upload photos, process and procedure documents, or other relevant attachments

Workplace inspections are not required by any regulatory body, but as an employer, you should be doing all you can to create a safe working environment for all employees. Inspecting equipment or reviewing procedures will help you identify potential issues — ideally before an incident occurs.

Empower your safety department

With one easy-to-use platform

At SafetySkills, everything we create is intended to help our clients train their entire workforce in an easy and effective way, from our innovative learning management system to our regularly updated course content.

Empower is a natural extension of our award-winning services, one that will allow any organization to build and implement a more complete safety program that will work for them.

When it comes to safety training, a common question is, “Where do we start?” Empower makes it easy to answer that, with intuitive instructions every step of the way acting as a guide.

Our intentional use of simple inputs means both a safety professional and a user with no industry experience can fully and effectively utilize every aspect of the platform.
