Online Health & Safety Training


The LDCA has partnered with Online Learning Enterprises Inc. to provide online Health & Safety Training, a convenient alternative to the more traditional Heath & Safety Training courses.  The online courses are created with custom graphics and real world videos, designed to encourage interaction and increase knowledge retention.  Participants receive high quality training without your company experiencing higher training costs and loss of resource time. 

Easier Resource Scheduling

Online training works well regardless of you or your employees schedule. The courses are accessible via internet connection, enabling participants to learn at their own pace and at a location that is most convenient to them.  Courses are available 24/7 so participants are able to balance both training and work requirements.

Cost Savings

Online training makes sense when looking at the clock, and the bottom line. 

Compared to in class training, online is a more cost effective platform for training; as rates are reduced by eliminating the expense of trainers, classroom materials, as well as travel and accommodation costs.  Online training enables you to provide training for individual employees without limiting their time away from their place of work. 

Increased Retention

Having the ability to study in a self paced environment results in greater knowledge retention and a deeper understanding of the course content. Sections of the course can easily be repeated if not easily understood the first time.
