Walbridge Orientation Safety Program
A century-old global construction company needs to create an OSHA-compliant multi-lingual training program that supports its core value of safety.
In a company where thinking, demanding, and delivering safety in all aspects of business is the No. 1 core value, creating a work culture that sustains safety is vital. So educating all personnel — from internal administrators to onsite subcontracted laborers — has to happen in an efficient and effective way. Doing this can be tough; project sites are spread around the globe, OSHA has federal requirements which must be met, and Walbridge has its own orientation requirement that 100% of its employees and subcontractors must take and pass the safety course and post-test. This is further complicated on job sites, where employees and subcontractors must take time away from working on the project to complete the training and take the post-test, which they may have already done. Lastly, on many US job sites Spanish is commonly the primary language of subcontractors, making a bi-lingual Spanish/English course a necessity.
GoalsProject goals focused on measuring safety training compliance:
- 100% compliance mandate: every employee and subcontractor must complete Wallbridge Orientation Safety program and pass post-test
- Reduce time and cost by tracking completion rates of training to minimize repetition on sites
