Marketing Company Creates 'University of Safety Distribution'
Safety Marketing Services, a Brooksville, Fla.-based producer of safety equipment catalogs and Web sites, has created the University of Safety Distribution exclusively to provide employee developmental training for members of the Safety Equipment Distributors Association (SEDA), and Safety Marketing Group (SMG).
Distributor members can select categorized positional, 24/7/365 training for Customer Service, Inside Sales, Outside Sales, Administrative & Counter Personal and Managerial development. Utilizing SMS's Learning Management Software, customer administrators can plan, track, and report on employee training and development with secure access to course content and delivery.
USD President Wayne Johnson says, "Our University recognizes the need for continuing and ongoing safety and human resource education and training for all employees in the Safety Equipment Distribution industry, with an ultimate goal of achieving higher levels of professionalism, improved customer consultation, and overall understanding of federal laws and regulations."
SMS says manufacturer members of SEDA and SMG are invited to offer their product training programs to members and enjoy the benefits of concise positional training with comprehension testing to ensure knowledge transfer and understanding. Future offerings will include webinars, video conferencing, and onsite hosted development training, and plans are in development for QSSP & FOSH recertification and preprogram testing and development offered by SEDA, SMS says. In addition, distributors may register to have live training sessions hosted in SMS's training center in Brooksville which can accommodate up to 48 students per session.
