New Course: Vehicle Mounted Aerial Devices

Vehicle Mounted Aerial Devices (VMAD), such as bucket trucks, are commonly used to lift employees and materials to great heights and are mainly used for maintenance, repairs, construction, and tree trimming. This training program will teach you how to identify hazards and controls critical to the safe operation of this VMAD. At the end of this training and after both the written and practical exams, you should be ready to operate a vehicle mounted aerial device. You will be familiar with the equipment used by your company, have an increased knowledge of how to setup and safely operate it, and be able to recognize and avoid the most common hazards associated with its use.

New Course: Safe Handling of Sharps

Small but mighty; sharps present a plethora of hazards in the workplace, including some life-altering illnesses. Sharps are present in various industries and need to be effectively controlled. This course will review sharps, associated hazards, safe handling and use, and sharp prevention considerations.

New Course: Safe Clean Up of Feces

Feces is not something to be taken lightly as it is considered a biohazard that may contain many bacteria, viruses, parasites. Because the risk of infection or contamination is so high, it is imperative that those who perform the job of cleaning up fecal matter are properly trained and equipped. The purpose of this course is to teach the employee the proper cleaning methods to prevent the spread of an infection.

Event Scheduler

A few months ago we released an update so event URLs could be added as a shortcode within the event scheduler emails to make it easier for employees to access upcoming events. An event information page was created to display the event information after this link was selected. As an update to this new page, a registration button has been added to make it even easier for employees to register for upcoming training.


In addition, the URL that is generated for the event is displayed in the event details when the admin accesses it from the administer events page. This way, they can provide this manually to anyone who requires it.


Not using the event scheduler to manage your upcoming training events? Email support@systems24-7.com for more information.

Tech Update: Report It Updates

A new search functionality has been implemented for Report It. Now when you go to Report It – Manage Reports – a new search function has been added to search the report list by name of the report. Did you know Report it can be used to replace virtually any paper form in the workplace? Email support@systems24-7.com for more information.

Supervisor Skills: Employee Engagement and Development Webinar

We’ve all heard “no one wants to work anymore”, but the truth is our workforce dynamic has changed over the years. Just like with technology, our workplaces need to keep up with the changing times. Employers and managers need to make adjustments in the workplace to align with what employees are looking for to feel satisfied at work.


So, how do you engage with employees so they not only show up but actively participate in making your business successful? Join us as we explore various opportunities for employee engagement and development. Sign up today by visiting systems24-7.com/webinars/supervisor-skills
