Off-the-Job Safety

Course Library

A complete library for all of your off-the-job safety training needs.

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), approximately 24,000 individuals are killed each year in home accidents — an average of about 65 deaths per day. The NSC reports that about 3.6 million people are injured in home accidents, which means that one person out of 60 was disabled for one or more days. About 100,000 of these injuries resulted in permanent impairment. With these statistics, it cannot be overly emphasized that home safety is extremely critical. At home, we are all too familiar with our environment and the potential for serious mishaps.

OverNite Software’s Off-the-Job Safety library ensures that you are aware of the safety issues outside of your work environment and supplies you with the proper tools needed to handle any situation. This library contains 29 courses, including: Safe Driving Practices, Boating Safety, Poison Control, Stress Management, and Heat Stress Prevention.

Our courses are delivered via a state-of-the-art learning management system that allows you to customize curricula, adjust testing parameters, and even customize courses with site-specific content and photos.
