ClickSafety.com, the leader in online safety training, today announced the nationwide availability of its customized Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) service offering.
Injury and Illness Prevention Programs have been recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as effective for both workers and companies, and are widely considered the foundation of creating an effective culture of workplace safety.
ClickSafety's IIPPs are company-specific programs that allow employers and workers to take a proactive approach to workplace safety and health hazards. Through ongoing collaboration and proven industry processes, IIPPs establish industry standards to identify and mitigate workplace hazards before workers are exposed to them.
ClickSafety's custom IIPPs include the discovery, development, documentation and implementation of required safety and health program topics relevant to a specific company. IIPPs also include optional on-site auditing to identify potential hazards, customized training curriculums for workers, and ongoing IIPP updates so the program and documents evolve with the growth of a company.
"At ClickSafety, we are committed to providing the highest quality safety and compliance online training programs in the industry. IIPP assistance now means guiding our clients beyond training and providing critical solutions in support of their safety initiatives, goals and objectives. Injury and Illness Prevention Programs are a crucial element," says Brian Tonry, ClickSafety General Manager and Executive Vice President. "By putting in place a comprehensive and dynamic IIPP, companies may reduce the number of workplace injuries and illnesses as well as the potential financial burdens that come from unsafe conditions, behaviors and work practices. We're very pleased to offer this invaluable service to our clients."

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data th...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...

Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...
