At ZF Transmissions, visiting employees and new hires from Germany are required to complete a safety orientation before walking onto the manufacturing floor. After using translators and other training strategies that turned out to be time consuming, company executives found out about Life and Safety Inc.’s online learning management system.
“They are providing online training for some of our counterparts in Germany,” said Scott Nelson, environmental, health and safety manager at ZF Transmissions in Gray Court. He said that instead of spending a day in training, “they get on the ground with boots running. They are able to do this in Germany, from their home in Germany and at work. It is saving us a tremendous amount of time.”
