About Us


History

Hard Hat Training has been providing heavy equipment operator training services across the U.S. and Canada for nearly two decades. Our story started over 15 years ago in the Seattle area where we specialized in the inspection, testing, and certification of cranes. To this day, those same inspectors travel all over the country and even outside the country inspecting cranes and training heavy equipment operators. Our Hard Hat Training Series training tools have also become commonplace across the globe. Most recently, Africa, Abu Dhabi, and the United Arab Emirates have become markets filled with companies using our online training classes and customizable training kits to train their heavy equipment operators.

VISION STATEMENT

To help companies eradicate accidents and fatalities through consistent in-depth training and the establishment of an engaging safety culture.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our goal is to make safety training easy and affordable and to invite companies everywhere to stop doing things the hard way and, instead, start doing them the Hard Hat Training way!

VALUE STATEMENT

At Safety Provisions, we are just your run-of-the-mill folks, but with an intense desire to become the best we can be and to help you get the best you deserve. We are learners and teachers and learners evermore. We are fiercely independent yet humbly dependent. We expect from ourselves and others honesty, kindness, understanding, and gratitude. We strive to be aware of others’ needs and to be accessible so that we can fulfill them. And we are hyper-focused on delivering more than expected. We want you to feel comfortable turning to us again and again for any help you may need as you work tirelessly to create a safe work environment and achieve ultimate OSHA compliance.

OUR PURPOSE


Our main purpose is to provide you with easy and affordable compliant OSHA safety training solutions. We have an in-house support team to help you with all of your training needs. Our customer satisfaction is based on these three core values:

Quality

We offer robust training solutions that will cover all your safety needs at a price you can afford. In a time when safety training keeps getting shorter, we keep adding to ours to make it more comprehensive.

Simplicity

Our LMS and our training kits are easy to navigate. We do the research and design work to make training your employees as simple as possible without sacrificing quality.

Compliance

We offer training that complies with the most current U.S. and Canada standards. We also offer CalOSHA-specific trainings for our customers in California. If you don’t see what you need in our catalog, we take training requests as well.
