GCSC intends to challenge industry to continually improve the training of personnel on their industrial sites by helping to develop “Site-Specific” Orientations. Contract companies are seeing the benefit of using the safety council to conduct new hire orientation or Company-Specific training. Site-Specific and Company-Specific training creates an advantageous situation to all involved in the areas of:

Cost Effectiveness

  • Reduces training sessions by up to 50% through the use of managing the students time effectively
  • Reduces overall training costs as it relieves unnecessary costs associated with the plant’s infra-structure (cost of building, supplies, employees time, etc.)
  • Reduces external cost by lowering the cost of Basic Orientation Plus training

Quality of Training

  • Allows for information that is specific to the plant to be supplemented into the curriculum while redundant information may be omitted; this improves the quality of training in that workers will be oriented to a greater degree within their environment

Convenience of Training

  • Site-Specific and Company-Specific may be conducted through any GCSC training center
  • Instructor led sessions may also be requested for the convenience of on-site instruction

Computer Based Training

  • Used throughout the industry for contractor orientations
  • Used to heighten the awareness level of the student
  • Used for operations and maintenance skills training

The idea of Council taught “Site-Specific and Company-Specific” Orientation has been used to a high degree of success by other safety councils throughout the United States. Through the innovation of Computer Based Training (CBT), GCSC will work to “partner” with the industry to develop site specific training, and make available at locations across the country.
