Company: The Torrington Company
The Torrington Company, a division of Ingersoll-Rand, supplies OEM bearing components to the automotive industry. Kim Kauer, the division safety engineering manager, used ReadyGo Web Course Builder (WCB) to create more than 20 OSHA-required training courses in just under three months. The courses range from basic employee safety to safety procedures for equipment operation.
In the past, Kauer relied on PowerPoint presentations or else hired consultants for each of the company's 16 locations. Consultants were an expensive option, and developing tailored PowerPoint presentations was labor-intensive and seldom met the needs of EVERY safety program.
The ReadyGo WCB Solution
"It used to take me a couple of hours just to enter slides," says Kauer. "With ReadyGo! WCB, I can complete everything, including quizzes, tests and tips, in about two hours, and be assured that the built-in pedagogy will deliver the performance outcomes needed for the training course."
Because OSHA requirements and company procedures change frequently, she needs to upgrade her training courses often, which is easily accomplished with ReadyGo WCB's speed and flexibility.
Kauer sees ReadyGo! being used throughout The Torrington Company, as the division moves toward its goal of improving training performance and reducing document load.
"The Internet and ReadyGo WCB are key elements in meeting our objectives," says Kauer.
