ClickSafety will be the exclusive provider of online safety training through BlueBookUniversity.com’s School of Safety website.

In addition to the School of Safety, BlueBookUniversity.com also will feature training on architecture, construction and general business. It will provide direct access to a comprehensive database of continuing education courses, programs and publications targeted to architects, engineers, contractors, owners, facility managers and other industry professionals. The new website officially debuted at the Greenbuild International Expo on Nov. 14 in San Francisco.

The School of Safety will ensure that Blue Book Network members have unprecedented access to OSHA and construction, environmental and general industry safety courses, ultimately resulting in increased awareness of, and responsibility for, safety on the job.”

One of the key reasons for BlueBookUniversity.com’s selection of ClickSafety as its safety training provider is ClickSafety’s long-standing relationship with OSHA and its ability to offer more than 300 courses and 50 in Spanish. ClickSafety was the first to offer both the OSHA 10-Hour Construction and the 30-Hour Construction Courses online. ClickSafety is OSHA-authorized to offer the newly updated OSHA 10-Hour Construction, 30-Hour Construction and 10-Hour General Industry courses that include the highest standards of increased student interactivity and safety content. In addition to the updated OSHA courses, the company offers the 10-Hour Road Builder, 10-Hour Cal/OSHA and 10-Hour Construction Spanish courses.
