FRANKLIN, TN–(Marketwired – Jul 15, 2014) – UL Workplace Health & Safety, the industry’s leading provider of workplace health and safety solutions, today announced the launch of a new global solution for companies seeking to improve their training, safety and compliance programs for workers throughout the world. This new solution includes PureSafety 7.1, the latest release of UL Workplace Health & Safety’s safety management system, and a new global training library that offers top safety courses in six languages.
“An injury anywhere in the world can compromise a company’s culture, productivity, brand and bottom line,” said Bill Grana, president of UL Workplace Health & Safety. “Companies that continue to expand outside of the U.S. need efficient and effective ways to implement common workplace safety training programs across their global operations, and track incidents anywhere in the world. UL Workplace Health & Safety’s new global safety solution provides companies the ability to seamlessly create safety standards and deploy and manage consistent, centralized safety and compliance programs for thousands of workers in multiple nations.”
More than 3.5 million production employees work for U.S. multi-national companies outside the U.S.in industries such as energy, manufacturing, construction, and transportation and warehousing. These companies employ an international workforce roughly equivalent to 80 percent of their domestic workforce. Companies seeking to mitigate risk across all operations are looking for a globalized and consistent training program across the full span of their operations.
The PureSafety system brings together UL’s safety expertise and guidance with industry-leading software to give companies operating in an increasingly global economy the capacity to establish solid practices in workplace safety and effectively and efficiently give all workers, regardless of geographic location, access to fundamental safety practices. With this 7.1 release, PureSafety is available in English, Canadian French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, German, and Mandarin Chinese.
Additionally, PureSafety’s Incident Management System (IMS) has been redesigned to meet the growing flexibility and interactivity needs of its global clients. It enhances safety managers’ abilities to improve communication and accountability among global employees, and track safety issues across languages and countries. The system can help companies identify and respond to risk more quickly, decrease the frequency and severity of incidents, and reduce related costs.
The new global training library, which is also available in English, Canadian French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, German, and Mandarin Chinese, includes UL’s top 50 courses. The global library provides U.S. companies with consistent training on good safety practices across all operations.
