Due to the digital nature of our training kits and online courses, we cannot unfortunately accept returns. All sales are final upon fulfillment. As it relates to online courses when purchased via purchase order and invoice. Sales become final upon invoicing (eg, a customer contact us and asks us to invoice them for x-amount of online course credits; we then, in turn, add those credits to their account and invoice them: this constitutes a fulfillment of goods and the sale is final whether those credits are used up or not.) For more information, refer to our full return policy.
Safety Training products and solutions created by Safety Provisions, Inc., Home of the Hard Hat Training Series, are herein defined as training tools, designed to assist employers, supervisor, safety officers, and the like in fulfilling their ultimate responsibility to train, qualify, certify, test, and observe their employees and operators. These tools are also provided herein to help operators better understand basic principles of safe operation, best practices, and regulations specific to their chosen course(s).
Ultimate compliance according to federal, state, and provincial regulations, as well as company rules, is so much more than training. Of fact, according to said-regulations, it is the employer who is ultimately responsible to ensure any and all training being done or training tools being used are in line with the specific regulations governing their company, industry, or equipment. Because ultimate certification is the responsibility of the employer and training (whether online training, training kits, training via videos, on-site training, or other forms of training) is simply a tool to help them certify their own workers, or in the case of individuals seeking a job, to help them better understand safe practices, and because our training solutions are designed to help a broad spectrum of industries, employers, and workers, and because it cannot possibly cover every specific situation or application for every possible customer, work site or industry, it is understood that employers are the ones responsible to address any “gaps” in training in an effort to make it specific to their operations, work sites, and employees.
Additionally, it is understood that neither training nor a training company “certify” operators or workers. According to federal and state standards, it is the employer through their own means or through the use of 3rd party trainers or training tools (such as those services and products offered by Safety Provisions, Inc) who certifies and acknowledges his/her employees have been sufficiently trained, tested, and observed and are therefore authorized and trusted to work and operator safely and in accordance with the principles outlined in the training as well as any other additional information trained on by the employer or their trainers/supervisors in an effort to make all training and applications specific to their work situation and work force.
Be it known that course completion alone, whether in a live setting, an online setting, in front of videos, or by use of training kits, does not necessarily signify compliance. While our training courses, kits, and others services and products are noted as being OSHA-compliant, this term is herein defined as meaning that the training tools, for their part, follow to the best of our ability the regulations and best practices put forth by OSHA, ANSI, CSA or other governing safety agencies.
Furthermore, it is understood that a company can use OSHA-compliant training, as herein defined, but fail to do other things required by OSHA or other governing safety agencies in conjunction with the training and still be found not to be collectively compliant as a company or still be found in violation of certain standards outlined in the training. For example, a company that takes a training such as forklift, which covers safe use, but fails to follow the outlined principles taught therein might still be in violation and fined accordingly. Or a company that requires its employees to take an online course but fails to administer a practical exam by way of practical exercises and observation is in violation of federal and state regulations since the practical examination/observation is a required portion of ultimate training, certification, and compliance. It is understood that such negligence or disregard for the training principles taught is not a reflection of the training or our promise that it was built to comply with safety regulations and, by virtue of that, is OSHA-compliant as herein defined.
Be it known that by using these online courses for your self or your employees, you understand your responsibility in this matter and agree to abide by the regulations governing you in order to achieve collective compliance. It is the employer’s ultimate responsibility to administer the practical exam and further observe any and all workers applying in the field what they learned about safe operations in the classroom. This can be done by the employer or a designated safety supervisor or competent person.
Individuals taking online courses or other training for themselves further understand that where employment is not secured, the online training is simply part of a certification and not a license to operate any piece of equipment without eventual employer authorization. In this sense, it is feasible, common, and encouraged that any subsequent employer not accept training based on a certificate alone, but they instead see the new hire receive their own agreed-upon training followed soon after (prior to work) by a skills check during which they test and observe the worker practically applying in the field what they learned in the classroom.
Train the Trainer/Competent Persons
According to regulations, such terms as “competent person” and “trainer” are, in fact, employer designations. It is understood that our online courses, on-site training, and any other form of training which, in the end, issues a certificate for a trainer or for a competent person are once again a tool designed to be used by the employer to make this designation. It is understood that a certificate alone does not necessarily qualify or certify a trainer. As an employer, you must further justify this designation by way of education, experience, training, or the like.
