– To understand that, it is important to know how our organization came into existence. In 1998, Thompson Machinery endured a tragic incident when one of its employees was killed in an on-the-job accident. Although the company had long been dedicated to maintaining a safety-conscious culture, management felt determined to do more. Additionally, the company sought a means to systematically track and report government and other corporate mandated training. As part of management’s commitment to a company-wide safety initiative, PureSafety was born.
In 2011, PureSafety joined Underwriters Laboratories (UL), a trusted name in safety for more than 100-years, to form UL Workplace Health and Safety. UL’s mission was not only to continue their efforts in keeping consumers of products safe, but also protect the employees that make those products.
ULWHS continues to provide health and safety eLearning training topics to increase employee awareness on various subjects. In addition, we provide safety and health management software to assist our clients with obtaining a true, leading indicator-based approach to their health and safety programs. Armed with over 75 years of collective knowledge, our EHS Advisory Services offers consulting services to help organizations make the transition to a leading indicator based health and safety program. In addition, we have the capabilities to perform more traditional EHS services such as JHA/JSAs, OSHA 10/30 Onsite Instruction, Risk Assessments and training matrices development.
To add, we DO NOT advocate eLearning to be the only solution, or to replace instructor-led training. We believe by using a blended approach, organizations can effectively use both to meet their objectives.
