UL Workplace Health & Safety Wins Gold in the 2015 Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Awards

FRANKLIN, Tenn.--()--UL Workplace Health & Safety, the industry’s leading provider of workplace health and safety solutions, has won a gold award in the Best Advance in Learning Management Technology for Compliance Training category.

Its entry, “Creating a Culture of Workplace Safety by Integrating Training and Incident Management,” highlighted the unique capabilities of its proprietary PureSafety Safety Management System to centralize and simplify safety, training and compliance programs by integrating observation, incident management, prevention and training into one system. The company will be officially honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM (Human Capital Management) Excellence Conference on Jan. 27-29, 2016.

“We are grateful that our PureSafety platform has received a gold award from the Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Awards,” said Mark Ward, general manager of UL Workplace Health & Safety. “Our team has worked hard to ensure that PureSafety’s proactive and flexible approach works for the training and safety needs of our customers because we know that people are the most important asset in any organization. We strive to keep our customers at the leading edge of workplace health and safety so they can keep their workers safe, healthy, and productive.”

Joe Harmon, product management director at UL Workplace Health & Safety, credits the award to PureSafety’s unique features. “Our industry-leading eLearning content is at the heart of our PureSafety platform. We know that training works best when it’s relevant and immediate. Employees are more likely to retain the knowledge that truly matters to them. The PureSafety system can pull actual incident information to create company- and site-specific training courses about real-world safety problems. This integration of training functionality and incident management can help strengthen an organization’s safety culture by educating employees on hazards that they and their coworkers actively face.”

“Our award winners are the most visionary and innovative developers of HCM technology solutions that move organizations forward in serving employees, customers and investors,” said Brandon Hall Group chief operating officer Rachel Cooke, who runs the awards program. “I think everyone can learn from the achievements of our award recipients.”

“These award-winning solutions were closely evaluated by our judges for not only their innovation, but the real results they brought to the organizations,” said Mike Cooke, Brandon Hall Group chief executive officer. “That is what makes our technology awards program special – connecting creativity and innovation to direct business results.”
