    Our Difference









    At CDP, we understand that it's an aggravation to try to compare products when the providers will not tell you their price upfront. Many providers make it very difficult to find out their costs, like they have something to hide or are embarrassed about. Price transparency helps you obtain price information easily, which allows you to make useful comparisons of costs of alternative choices. Price transparency also means that you understand how our prices are set and you are aware of any price discrimination (different prices charged to different customers). In the online HSE training markets you often have difficulty finding useful price information.

    CDP is upfront about all prices which are easy to understand and best of all... with no hidden costs.

    Safety Training...A Tool for LIFE.

    We appreciate your business and that's why we want to talk to you in person to make sure you purchase the right solution.

    If we know of a better solution...even if it means losing business, we will tell you.

    We are here to assist, inform, educate and guide you.

What Does OSHA Say About Online Safety & Health Training?
by Master Admin - Friday, 14 December 2018, 11:57 PM

What Does OSHA Say About Online Safety & Health Training?

If you’re thinking of using online safety and health training at your workplace, one reasonable question to ask is “What does OSHA have to say about online safety training?” You may wonder if they accept the completion of online safety training to satisfy safety training requirements in OSHA standards, for example.

Well, the short answer is yes. OSHA certainly does allow employers to use online safety training to satisfy the compliance requirements for mandatory occupational safety and health training.

We’ll flesh out that answer for you below, however, giving you some of OSHA’s explanations and linking you to some supporting documents at the OSHA website. And we’ll go a little further, as well, letting you know about a couple of ANSI/ASSP standards on environmental, health, and safety training that also support the use of online training for occupational safety and health training. We’ll even tell you what learning experts outside the world of safety and health have to say about the efficacy of online training.

Let us know if you have any additional questions about the use of online safety training at work, and do feel free to download our free Online Safety Training Buyer’s Guide Checklist as well.

Does OSHA Accept Online Safety and Health Training for Compliance Requirements?

OSHA does accept online safety and health training as a way to satisfy OSHA safety training requirements.

In fact, here’s how OSHA states it in this Letter of Interpretation:

In OSHA’s view, self-paced, interactive computer-based training can serve as a valuable training tool in the context of an overall training program.


“Computer-based training” is the same as online safety training, so you can see that OSHA sees this as a valuable addition to your safety training program.

Now, it’s worth noting that this same OSHA letter of interpretation concerning the use of online training goes on to state that the “…use of computer-based training by itself would not be sufficient to meet the intent of most of OSHA’s training requirements…”

What OSHA is suggesting here is that safety professionals should use a blended learning approach for safety training when they’re incorporating online training into their safety training programs. This means using a variety of training delivery methods, possibly including classroom-based instructor-led training, field-based hands-on training, online safety training, written materials, and (in today’s modern world) maybe even augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and artificial-intelligence (AI) powered chatbots. And OSHA’s recommendation to use blended learning approaches is in line with what other safety and learning professionals recommend as well, as you’ll see below.

Pro tip: you might want to download our free Blended Learning Beginner’s Guide for more on this.

So there it is, straight from OSHA’s mouth (or their pen and/or their web master). OSHA DOES allow the use of online safety training as part of a safety training program intended to satisfy and comply with OSHA safety training regulations.

Second pro tip: now that you know OSHA does allow online safety training, you might also be interested in this list of the OSHA standards that include specific safety & health training requirements.

OSHA’s Own Use of Online Learning/Training for Safety Training

Although we think that OSHA’s own words about accepting the use of online safety and health training within your overall safety and health training program pretty much seals the deal on this question, we’ll also invite you to consider what OSHA itself does.

Have you noticed OSHA’s own use of online safety and health training materials at their webpage, for example?

Check out this page at the OSHA website, which is a list of OSHA eTools, eMatrix, Expert Advisers, and v-Tools.

Here’s how OSHA explains this page and the online materials that are listed there:

eTools and the eMatrix are “stand-alone,” interactive, Web-based training tools on occupational safety and health topics. They are highly illustrated and utilize graphical menus. Some also use expert system modules, which enable the user to answer questions, and receive reliable advice on how OSHA regulations apply to their work site. Expert Advisors are based solely on expert systems and v-Tools are prevention video training tools.


We added the bolding in the quote above to call out the obvious. OSHA’s eTools and eMatrix are “Web-based training tools,” which is online safety and health training by a slightly different name, and the v-Tools are “video training tools” delivered online (sounds a lot like a form of online safety training to me).

Speaking of OSHA’s own creation and delivery of online safety training materials, we think they’re doing a good job and deserve some recognition and thanks. And, if you’d like to see a larger list of their offerings, check out this OSHA webpage.

OSHA Accepts Online Training for OSHA 10 & 30

But wait, there’s more to be said about OSHA’s use and acceptance of online safety training.

OSHA even authorizes online safety training for the completion of OSHA 10- and 30-hour safety training.

Speaking of that, if you’re looking to complete OSHA 10 and/or 30 online, our business partners at RedVector offer online OSHA 10 & 30.

What Other Safety Professionals and Organizations Say about Online Training

Well, by now it’s clear OSHA’s good with online health and safety training. They say so in their own words (in the letter of interpretation quote above). They use it in their eTools and other similar safety training tools they offer online. And they authorize the use of online safety training for OSHA 10 and OSHA 30.

But what do other safety experts have to say about this? For example, what does the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) think of online safety training?

Fortunately, that’s easy enough to find out by checking out the ASSP/ANSI Z490.1, Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training national standard and by taking a peek at the ASSP/ANSI Z490.2 standard for ONLINE Safety, Health, and Environmental Training (this standard is not yet final as of December, 2018 but is in the works and coming soon–we know this because we’re helping to write it).

First, let’s consider Z490.1, the standard that deals with all EHS training in all different delivery methods. It’s instructive to know that Z490.1 includes an entire Annex on online training (this is Annex D, and they call it “virtual learning,” but it means the same thing as online learning/training). We’ll leave it to you to pick up a copy of Z490.1 (in addition, check out our free guide to effective safety training, which functions as a bit of an unofficial “expansion” or supplement to Z490.1), but clearly ASSP and Z490.1 endorses the use of online safety training as evidence of the inclusion of this Annex on virtual training.

Next, let’s consider Z490.2. As a reminder, this is an ANSI/ASSP standard that’s (1) currently in development and nearing completion and that (2) is a standard entirely devoted to best practices for online safety, health, and environment training. The fact that ASSP is creating a brand new standard on online EHS training certainly shows they support the use of online safety training.

Two quick notes on ANSI/ASSP Z490.1 and Z490.2: It’s worth knowing that Z490.2 isn’t intended to replace Z490.1. Instead, everything in Z490.1 is true for all types of EHS training, and Z490.2 is intended to provide guidance that’s specific to online EHS training. In addition, it’s worth knowing that these two ASSP/ANSI standards both echo OSHA’s recommendation to use online safety training within an overall blended learning approach to safety training.

What Learning Professionals Say & Evidence Shows

So it seems OSHA and ASSP and the “safety world” endorses the use of online safety training. But what do learning professionals who aren’t specific to safety, safety and health, and/or EHS training have to say?

In short, the answer is that they endorse the use of online training too, when it’s created following best practices, and they provide research and evidence to back up their recommendations and to show that online training can be just as effective or even in some cases more effective than other forms of training delivery (such as classroom, etc.).

We won’t get too far into the weeds on this, but we’ll quickly summarize some findings from the following three sources of evidence-based training information and will provide links where you can learn more about this:

  • Dr. Ruth Colvin Clark
  • Dr. Will Thalheimer
  • United States Department of Education

Dr. Ruth Colvin Clark’s book Evidence-Based Training Methods (a classic, and well-worth buying) shows that the delivery method for training (meaning, online as opposed to classroom as opposed to field-based, etc.) really isn’t especially important when it comes to evaluating the effectiveness of the training. Instead, she argues (and provides evidence to prove) that what is really important are the instructional methods (providing opportunities for practice, for feedback, effective visuals, etc.) that are used within the training. So the takeaway here is that if online training is created following best practices and incorporating effective learning methods, it will be effective.

Dr. Will Thalheimer is a well-known learning researcher dedicated to advancing evidence-based training methods (and doing the research to backing his claims up). His white paper, titled Does eLearning Work? What the Scientific Research Says! backs up the claims made by Dr. Clark in her book mentioned above. In fact, his research shows that online training tends to be a little more effective than classroom-style training, although it’s worth reading his report to find his explanation for that. To learn more about this, check out the discussion we had with Dr. Thalheimer in our interview titled Is eLearning Effective: Evidence-Based Training Methods?

The US Department of Education probably requires no introduction. Their report titled Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies falls very much in line with the findings from Dr. Clark and Dr. Thalheimer and supports the use of online training as well (and recommends following best practices best on research and evidence).

Additional Materials from OSHA On Safety Training Development & Online Safety Training

In case you want a little more insight into what OSHA’s looking for in terms of safety training in general and online safety training in particular, you might find these documents and materials helpful:

Conclusion: OSHA Supports Online Safety Training For Occupational Safety and Health

In summary, OSHA is A-OK with you using online health and safety training, and they recommend you use it wisely within a well-designed blended learning solution.

We hope this answers all your questions about OSHA’s thoughts on the use of online safety training to satisfy health and safety training requirements. If not, feel free to leave a question in the comments section below.

And before you go, and now that you know online safety training can be used to satisfy these OSHA requirements, the next logical step is to figure out how to get the best online safety training solutions for your company’s unique safety training needs.

Summary of OSHA's New Record Keeping Rule
by Master Admin - Monday, 25 July 2016, 05:28 PM


The final rule that will require some establishments to electronically submit OSHA record keeping data has been unleashed. And, it's not evil. In fact, I do not believe this rule will be a big burden on folks; complying with it shouldn't ruin anyone's day. The final rule is less stringent than the proposed rule had originally planned it to be.

The final rule becomes effective January 1 of 2017, though the first batch of data will have a deadline of July 1 of 2017. Please note that there are no changes to the requirements regarding OSHA record keeping responsibilities (though some were reiterated); nothing has changed except that some of us will be submitting our data electronically.

Scroll beyond the downloads to review the summary in full detail, or click one of the following to jump to a specific section:


The following downloads are available for your review and use. Clicking on a download will open a new browser window where you can view and/or download. You may freely circulate these.

  • Summary of OSHA's New Record Keeping Rule - The majority of the text on this final rule web page was copied from this document; the four-page PDF is a handier and more portable version of the information found on this page.
  • PowerPoint of the Final Rule - Can be opened in "Read Only" mode. Editing is not allowed, but it may be freely presented, distributed, and shared by individuals, corporations, and safety and environmental associations that do not charge for attendance. Commercial use is forbidden and subject to U.S. copyright laws.
  • Final Rule - This is the complete 273 page final rule PDF, for your complete reading enjoyment! If you only want to know what the new rule requires and how it affects you, then view the summary.
  • List of High Hazard Industries - This is the new rule's list of "high hazard industries," identified by NAICS code. This is important because any establishment (with 20 to 249 employees) in this industry list will be required to electronically submit the OSHA 300A annually.


There are two groups of business establishments that are required to submit data. The first group includes establishments with 250 or more employees. The second group includes establishments with 20 to 249 employees, but only in industries identified by the final rule as "high hazard."

Please note that the employee number "triggers" are based on employees at a particular ESTABLISHMENT, and NOT the total number of employees company-wide. An establishment is any physical location in operation for at least a year. Two examples follow.

ABC Company has 300 employees, all operating at one location; ABC is obviously required to submit data. But, assume that XYZ Corporation also has 300 employees, but three physical locations, and that 100 employees are assigned to each location. Is XYZ required to submit data? No. The size of the establishment triggers data submission, not the total size of the corporate workforce. This treatment is in line with the 1904 standard's existing requirement that instructs us to record injuries and illnesses by establishment. While many multi-location businesses create aggregate company-wide 300A summary forms combining data from all of their establishments, they are not required to do so. And, they will not be required to electronically submit composite company-wide data. This is a good thing; a great deal of data would otherwise be submitted twice and therefore skew the collected data.

This aforementioned establishment treatment also applies to those with 20 to 249 employees; 50 employees in one location triggers data submission, while five employees each at 10 locations means no data submission for any of them. Please note that data submission is not required for ALL establishments with 20 to 249 employees, as is the case with establishments of 250 or more employees. For this smaller group, only those in high hazard industries (classified by NAICS code and characterized by historical incident rates) are required to submit data. The list of high hazard industries will NOT change every year. The final rule does say that the list may change, but any changes would require a further rulemaking process, so I don't anticipate this list changing very often.

Also, from time to time, OSHA will request "special purpose" data submission. OSHA may want to collect data from all establishments with a particular NAICS code, for example residential roofing contractors. Or, it may want to collect data for all establishments involved with handling infectious materials. Any establishments that meet a special purpose data collection initiative will receive written notification from OSHA, so there will be no surprises. Please note that these special purpose data initiatives will even apply to establishments that are not otherwise required to submit data; in these cases, even establishments with just 15 employees will be required to take part in the particular special purpose data collection effort.


Establishments with 250 or more employees are required to submit data from the OSHA forms 301 (incident report), 300 (log) and 300A (summary). Please note that for the first submission year, 2017, only the 300A data will be submitted; data from the 301 and 300 will be required beginning in 2018. This phase-in scheme is undoubtedly due to the unprecedented volume of data that OSHA is going to be receiving in 2017 when it becomes operational, and the fact that the system won't have been combat proven yet. It will be a far easier task to work the bugs out of a system that isn't completely inundated with data the very first time it's used.

Establishments of 20 to 249 employees, in high hazard industries, are required to submit only the 300A.

Data will be submitted annually. This is great news; the proposed rule called for quarterly submission of data. During the comment period of the rulemaking process, interested citizens and industry groups voiced their concerns; many of them were not thrilled with the idea of submitting quarterly data, mostly on logistical grounds. And, the folks at OSHA listened, and ultimately agreed. I have always encouraged business leaders to participate in the rulemaking process by submitting their ideas during the comment period, and this is why; OSHA takes our concerns seriously.


The first electronic submission of data will be due July 1, 2017. Establishments with 250 or more employees, and those in high hazard industries with 20 to 249 employees, will be submitting their 2016 OSHA 300A summary data by that deadline. Since establishments must post the 2016 300A from February 1 to April 30 of 2017 (a quarter year), there is no reason why they shouldn't have that data ready to be electronically submitted by July of 2017.

In 2018, establishments with 250 or more employees will be required to submit data from their 2017 301 incident report and 300 log, along with the 300A, by July 1.

Beginning in 2019, the submission deadline will be moved up to March 2 for all establishments required to submit data. Since this will still be a full month past the requirement to post the 300A summary form in the workplace, there shouldn't be any reason for not submitting the data on time.


Personally identifiable information will NOT be collected. All of the information on the 300A summary form will be collected; there is nothing of a personal nature. The 300 log form will omit employee names. The 301 incident report form will omit data from the entire left side of the form (fields one through nine). Since personally identifiable info will not be collected, employee privacy should prevail.

Also, the final rule says that the electronic data collection system will include safeguards to ensure that inadvertently submitted personally identifiable information is not collected. For example, it's possible that a person may mistakenly include information of this nature on the 300 log - the record keeper could indicate "Bob had three stitches" in the brief description field for the case. OSHA is intending to implement a system that will scrub Bob's name in such a case.


All collected data, minus the aforementioned personally identifiable information, will be publicly available on the OSHA website. This data will be available for all interested parties to see, as is currently the case for an employer's OSHA violation history.


Setting up user accounts will be similar to how we do it for many of our online accounts, so one may assume it will be fairly intuitive. Self-registration will be accomplished via an online form. When complete, an email will be generated in order to obtain login information. Sound familiar?

The actual data submission system has not been developed yet, but it will be. Since the first batch of submissions won't be due until July 1, 2017, there should be sufficient time for OSHA to accomplish the feat; the final rule states that synchrony with existing software platforms, to make the process as user friendly as possible, may be a possibility in its development.

80,000 establishments are already reporting record keeping data to OSHA's ODI (OSHA Data Initiative), and 80% of them are doing so electronically. 200,000 establishments are reporting data to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Survey of Occupational Injuries & Illnesses (SOII); 90% are submitting their record keeping data electronically. So, there is no reason to assume that developing a system for the rest of establishments to follow suit will be much of a technological problem.

OSHA also intends to create a help desk to assist users with the process. One may wonder, will the help desk be staffed by federal employees whose business day may end at 1600 hours, or perhaps by civilian contractors available for second shift duties? We'll see.


The greatly increased volume of data that OSHA will receive will be of great value from an occupational injury and illness epidemiology standpoint. Whether OSHA, injury epidemiologists and various other safety number crunchers, and the general public at large, will be able to succeed in utilizing this data won't be known for years.

And, now for the million dollar question... Will OSHA also use this data specifically to target establishments and/or entire industries with high incident rates? YES. The final rule states that it will be used to enhance OSHA's enforcement efforts, and there is no reason why it would not. Again, it will be years before we'll know whether OSHA has succeeded in this regard.

OSHA has utilized incident rates to dial in enforcement activity for years; this door is already wide open. There are various enhanced enforcement programs that are at least partly based on incident rates. For example, due to the National Emphasis Program for excavation activity (a very high hazard activity), any trench can be inspected without OSHA first having observed an imminent danger situation or receiving a complaint or referral. Just having a worker in a trench can trigger an inspection. If incident rates weren't so high for excavation work, this wouldn't be the case. There are quite a few national, regional, and local emphasis programs! Other initiatives, such as Site-Specific Targeting, also resulted in inspections opened on account of incident rates.


The new rule also restates some existing requirements. Employers can't retaliate against employees for reporting injury and illness cases and must inform employees of their right to report such cases (free of retaliation). And, the employer's reporting procedure must be reasonable and not discourage reporting. There is nothing new here and therefore no new burden on employers has been created.

One may wonder why the federal government is spending our tax dollars on creating new rules with provisions that simply restate existing ones. OSHA believes that restating and re-clarifying existing requirements will persuade non-compliant employers to finally get with it. Of course, this is wishful thinking. The only employers not already complying with these requirements are owned and operated by those who truly don't care about employee safety and health, who can't be expected to begin complying just because a rule has been restated.

Instructional design models: ADDIE process.Perhaps the most common model used for creating instructional materials is the ADDIE Process. This acronym stands for the 5 phases contained in the model:

  • Analyze – analyze learner characteristics, task to be learned, etc.
  • Design – develop learning objectives, choose an instructional approach
  • Develop – create instructional or training materials
  • Implement – deliver or distribute the instructional materials
  • Evaluate – make sure the materials achieved the desired goals

Most of the current instructional design models are variations of the ADDIE process.

Rapid prototyping: A sometimes utilized adaptation to the ADDIE model is in a practice known as rapid prototyping.

Proponents suggest that through an iterative process the verification of the design documents saves time and money by catching problems while they are still easy to fix. This approach is not novel to the design of instruction, but appears in many design-related domains including software design, architecture, transportation planning, product development, message design, user experience design, etc. In fact, some proponents of design prototyping assert that a sophisticated understanding of a problem is incomplete without creating and evaluating some type of prototype, regardless of the analysis rigor that may have been applied up front. In other words, up-front analysis is rarely sufficient to allow one to confidently select an instructional model. For this reason many traditional methods of instructional design are beginning to be seen as incomplete, naive, and even counter-productive.
