This blog is a supplement or related resources center for a presentation on Evaluating Online Safety Training Solutions I recently gave at the Washington Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Conference. We have a second blog that functions as a related resources center for the presentation on Effective Safety Training.
If you’re reading this after the conference and you did attend, here are the materials I promised. I hope you find them helpful.
