The newly revamped National Demolition Association website www.demolitionassociation.com now offers a full arsenal of online safety training and certification courses that allow for in-house training, orientation, and personnel management.
The members-only feature provides more than 7,000 training courses on topics that range from fall protection and excavator safety training to Microsoft Excel and safe driving.
“These self-paced courses were created for safety managers, employees that deal with environmental hazards, and general workforce employees,” explained Michael R. Taylor, CAE, Executive Director of the National Demolition Association. “It lets members track the training of each employee and manage their specific training needs.”
The courses are designed to improve safety, compliance, and risk management initiatives by providing OSHA standardized content, which is validated by industry experts. The interactive courses include instant grading and online certificates, as well. Members can pay just once for each course, but can view the course as many times as they want for up to one year.
Upcoming, the National Demolition Association is developing a demolition-specific safety training course that will be web-based and available on the newly upgraded website.
The National Demolition Association is a non-profit trade organization representing more than 1,100 U.S. and Canadian companies and many international firms that are involved in the demolition process. Membership includes demolition contractors, general contractors, civil engineering firms, and recycling, landfill, and salvage operations. The association’s efforts help members stay abreast of environmental, regulatory and safety matters, keep regulators informed about issues facing the industry, increase public and industry awareness, and provide members with networking opportunities and information on the latest technical advances in equipment and services.
