Companies that operate in some industries are subject to more regulations than others. This is especially true when it comes to businesses that deal with hazardous items such as heavy equipment, complex machinery or chemicals that can severely impair the workers who handle them. Consequently, compliance with government regulations and standards needs to be a priority for staff training purposes.
However, these rules and guidelines are constantly being updated to reflect new research and additional legislation, meaning that companies need to keep their personnel educated about changes in regulatory compliance. A custom software development application is the perfect solution to this conundrum and can be optimized to keep employees fully trained no matter which local, state and federal agencies add to existing standards.
For instance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) frequently makes changes to the rules governing how healthcare workers must handle dangerous chemicals in medical facilities. By December 1, 2013, all medical personnel need to be trained to properly use many substances from an OSHA-generated list that includes bleach, disinfectant and anesthesia. This is an excellent opportunity for companies to invest in eLearning development, especially considering that many facilities have different structures and needs and will require varied training methods to properly instruct their workers.
