1. Online Compliance Management Portal

There are many benefits to managing your safety compliance online.

This accountability is an added bonus when it comes to OSHA audits.

It will not get lost or destroyed like paper documents. Your online safety compliance documents are safe from fire and water. In addition, when you store compliance documents online you can find them easily at a later date instead of having to sift through folders full of paper. In addition, it can’t get lost or misplaced. In fact, for employees to log in to training they don’t even need to remember a password they just use their email address.

Online portals can usually be set up to send you reminders and alerts when it’s time to renew your training.
