Intertek’s Wisetail Launches Protek People Assurance, an Employee E-Learning System for Health, Safety and Wellbeing
May 05, 2020
Bozeman, Mont. — Wisetail, an Intertek company specializing in training and culture, announces the launch of Protek People Assurance, a targeted eLearning program that teaches, tests and certifies employee proficiency on critical topics, such as cleaning and sanitation, face masks, personal hygiene, vehicles of disease transmission and more. The program is part of Intertek Protek, the world’s first health, safety and wellbeing assurance program for people, workplaces and public spaces.
As the world adjusts to a “new normal,” consumers are looking for assurance that places, products and services are safe and trustworthy. Recent Intertek research shows that more than 70 percent of people don’t feel safe returning to their workplaces without authenticated health and safety practices in place. More than 50 percent of people are nervous about visiting a bar or restaurant when restrictions lift. And yet just over half (54 percent) of managers believe they will struggle to provide an acceptable health and safety standard for their employees when workplaces re-open.
Wisetail’s Protek offering uses the company’s award-winning learning platform, and includes interactive elements, microlearning, and gamification to ensure employee engagement and comprehension. Certification visibly demonstrates to consumers that employees have been trained, assessed, and verified to meet stringent health, hygiene, and sanitation protocols developed by Intertek Alchemy, the world’s leading expert on frontline worker training, trusted by more than 15,000 factories worldwide.
Ali Knapp, President of Wisetail, stated: “Health, safety, and wellbeing is now one of the greatest concerns of employees and consumers. We’re thrilled to provide the essential training businesses need to succeed in a post-pandemic world. Our intuitive platform will quickly get employees ready for new standards, boosting consumer confidence and ensuring the health and safety of clients”
Intertek Protek is an end-to-end, industry-agnostic program. In addition to state-of-the-art training and certification, Protek includes an audit of hygiene and sanitation processes, and assurance for all types of facilities, from hotels and restaurants to transportation hubs and factories. Wisetail’s Protek offering is designed to instill consumer confidence by certifying a commitment to the highest standards of environmental and product safety.
