Veresen is a diversified North American energy infrastructure company that owns assets within three business segments — pipelines, midstream and power.
In the past Veresen used training programs that were complicated and hard to access for their employees. This results in training getting pushed to the side or not getting done at all. Veresen is committed to being recognized as a leader in HSE performance and needs to be providing relevant safety and health information to all of their workers. Veresen was looking for a training course that could help them in this regard.
Veresen signed up with Chemscape to provide transitional training from WHMIS to GHS as the new implementation is being rolled out in Canada. The online training course is accessed through Veresen’s MSDS management system, msdsBinders site.
Veresen was able to have the site linked to an internal program so it was very efficient for their workers to access.
David Larson, Environmental, Health & Safety Advisor commented, “The training was easy to operate, functional, and not hard to navigate, which means when our workers start the course, they finish it. It is not pushed off to the side. Each person has logged into the system and been into it at least once. They are forced to do practical steps such as search for an MSDS/SDS and a workplace label as part of the training.”
