BLR's Two Most Popular Safety Training Products Redesigned

Old Saybrook, CT – August 9, 2005 – Delivering frequent safety training to workers is the only sure way to keep accidents from happening and the OSHA inspector at bay. But until now the difficulty of finding the time to research and deliver regular safety meetings has kept many managers from following that best safety practice. To make that training job easier, Business & Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR) has totally redesigned its two most popular safety training products – Safety Training Presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint® and Safety Meetings Library.

Safety Training Presentations – 25 complete, ready-to-go PowerPoint® training meetings The new and improved version of this best-selling CD product now includes interactive exercises to involve trainees in the learning process. Another improvement is that it is now possible to make the training specific to any facility by easily customizing the meetings with photos or text. Safety Training Presentations also includes an easy to follow trainers guide, detailed PowerPoint slides, and reproducible handouts and quizzes.

Safety Meeting Library – New formats and “Training Approaches” This exhaustive resource on CD features almost 300 complete meetings on every conceivable safety and OSHA topic – from Asbestos to Workers Compensation - and in every popular training format. A new “Choose a Training Approach” feature represents a training breakthrough - for the first time trainers can select training meetings tailored to specialized training needs. “Training Approaches” include: OSHA-mandated, new employee, refresher, comprehensive, and hands-on training meetings. The new and improved product also includes several exciting new training formats - 7 Minute Safety Meetings, Spanish language handouts and quizzes, and PowerPoint meetings.

The newly improved CD products have been made much easier to install and use, and both have been exhaustively reviewed by safety learning experts for improved comprehension and training effectiveness.

BLR is offering free trials of these products at its website, BLR.com. As an introductory gift to safety managers, the firm offers a free download of a complete PowerPoint meeting on Ergonomics safety at http://www.blr.com/81001600/PRS26
