By Nina Patel. Companies can now use online safety courses to provide employees with up-to-the-minute OSHA training while tracking records and proof of compliance. Rochester, N.Y-based Element K, through a partnership with Vivid Learning Systems, offers the Workplace Safety Library online safety training with built-in assessment tools that supplements or replaces classroom instruction or videos.

The Workplace Safety Library features 36 courses with interactive self-study tutorials. It offers safety directors and managers a fast, effective, and economical way to conduct safety training -- while helping them to cut their paperwork dramatically.

"Organizations can train new employees quickly and immediately from any workstation with Internet access," says Terry Nulty, president of Element K. "Moreover, the content is revised as soon as regulations change -- so there's no fear of out-of-date materials." For a complete course list, visit go to
