Summit Taking NSC's Training to the Web
BALTIMORE -- The National Safety Council (NSC) offers training in a number of areas at locations across the country. The list includes defense driving courses, OSHA 10-hour construction and general industry, fleet safety, emergency care instructor courses, train-the-trainer courses, and Certificate in OSHA Compliance courses in machine guarding, lockout/tagout, electrical safety, forklift operation, and many more. Much of this extensive catalogue (http://www.nsc.org/products_training/Training/Pages/Home.aspx) will be available via the web under a new agreement signed last month and announced here Monday.
NSC signed the agreement with Summit Training Source (http://www.safetyontheweb.com) of Grand Rapids, Mich. Bryan Hornik, Summit's general manager, said the agreement was in the works for more than a year and follows similar content delivery agreements Summit has signed with Liberty Mutual, Wells Fargo, and others.
Summit will put the NSC's training offerings on the web for a larger audience, and the council also will distribute Summit's offerings through its network, Hornik said. He said the first NSC training offerings from the partnership should be available by midsummer.
Summit recently opened a second office in Bonita Springs, Fla., to function as a sales and customer service branch.
