Testing, certification and staff training services have evolved to help organizations that want to build a ‘culture’ of safety. In specific industries – such as oil and gas and mining – organizations must integrate a safety training solution due to the most common challenges such as equipment needs and regulatory changes that impact th weays in which people and processes operate. Specifically, the more high-risk industries like mining, aviation and oil and gas, adoption of safety leaders is required at various points within the organization in order to address and manage safety issues and concerns that could arise.

Specifically, companies are in need of more customized safety training based on a combination of human factors and process safety instead of just a policy – or procedural – training. This need is the recent shift that is driving high-risk industries to identify key personnel to be change leaders within an organization.

It becomes vital to any organization that in order to succeed, functional and operational safety training is necessary.
