Review: free-training.com - Offering Free Safety Training

At the end of each year I do a survey of the internet to see what's available for free online safety training.  I'm looking for quality, comprehensive safety training that would be useful for small companies with limited budgets. This year I found a safety training site I had not seen before.  It is called www.Free-Training.com and it focuses on providing free OSHA compliance training.

The quality of the graphics and web design is not very good.  This gives an initial impression that this is not a very professional web site.

There are two areas within the web site. One for those taking the training, and another, password protected area for training managers.  Signing up as a training manager is quick, but apparently signups are reviewed manually and getting your password may take up to a day.

There are currently four training courses offered:

1. Hazard Communication
2. Personal Protective Equipment
3. Back Safety
4. Forklift Safety and Operation

The screen below is from the forklift training course.

The courses are good. They start at a very basic level that is good for new employees. They incorporate questions, that must be answered correctly before moving to the next page of the course. The only drawback is, like the overall web site, the graphics and design are simplistic.  However, although not flashy the training that is provided is good.

If you are looking for a source for free online safety training, the www.free-training.com web site is worth checking out.

Many unscrupulous companies have forced regulatory bodies to act and enforce safety training at all work places. A lot of occupations have inherent hazards that employees should be made aware of for their safety and health.

Thank you. Your posts about training have been useful. I'm new to this blog and finding it to be a useful safety reference. We have 50 employees and will be using some of the training web pages you've pointed out. Thank you and have a happy new year!

Training is essential when it comes to workplace safety. All employees should know how to properly use safety equipment and apparel to avoid accidents and injury in the workplace.
