Enterprise Training: First Voice’s Unlimited Staff Model

March 18, 2016

Your Training Challenges 
Because what you need is unique

Getting OSHA-compliant training is easier said than done. Multiple-location companies and franchise organizations are faced with unique challenges when it comes to providing staff training:

  1. High turnover
  2. Budget impact
  3. Multiple locations and departments
  4. Training time
  5. High Staffing Needs

What you need is affordable, flexible training options, customizable to fit your organization’s unique structure, staff, time frame, and budget. And that’s exactly what First Voice Training provides.

Who We Are
Innovators in our industry

We are in the business of making minutes matter. From the crucial minutes that occur after the onset of a medical emergency to the minutes it takes to complete a training course, we believe that every single minute counts. So we’ve made it our mission to provide first aid supplies, technology, and training that save time and money but don’t skimp on quality.

How We Can Help
Engaging technology, empowering people

1.Unlimited Access and Controlled Cost Models at an Enterprise Level
As a multiple-location company or franchise, ensuring that all your employees receive mandatory training can be both complex and costly. Our answer to that is a cost-efficient training system with no employee access ceilings.

Access
A rotating door for employees is a reality faced by many industries, and it makes training difficult and often too prohibitive in time and labor costs. However, First Voice Training allows employees to train anytime—that’s 24/7 access on all 365 days of the year. This flexible system means that training no longer has to be done during times of key field activity, such as during hands-on, in-store, or on-floor hours. With no limit on who can be trained, and when, you control outgoing spend and get more value for your money spent.

All of our training courses are OSHA compliant and up to date with the most recently approved science protocols for emergency preparedness, CPR, first aid, and workplace violence. And, courses even cover the required equipment you have at your facility and how to use the equipment, which helps with OSHA-compliance safety initiatives.

Cost

We offer controlled costs, which allow for best-practice compliance and affordable, tracked training solutions that are sustainable for organizations with high staffing models and high staff turnover.

Many of our clients pay under $1–5 per person per year, a low price that is unheard of in the training and compliance industry.

We can do this because we offer enterprise training for emergency preparedness and safety on a cost-per-location basis, as opposed to a cost-per-employee basis. By paying a low-cost annual service subscription per location, you can train your employees anytime. Our fixed cost-per-location pricing model, in fact, often saves you money on the traditional courses we offer from our core course product catalog.

2.Additional Revenue Streams for Your Business
Our turnkey system is an excellent reselling opportunity for your organization to provide to franchisees for state and/or federal requirements. We allow franchises to license and brand our training to sell internally to the franchisees as a corporate overhead fee income stream. This allows for additional revenue streams at the corporate level while meeting the needs of franchisees and providing very low bulk volume training course access.

3.Flexible Integration
As the licensed and intellectual property holder and content editor, we are able to white label our accredited training to your franchises at a these low pre-approved rates. Or, we plug our curriculum and content into your existing learning management system (various solutions exist on how to do this). This system is turnkey and allows for quality service to be provided at a discounted rate due to the bulk training volume of organizations like yours. Basically, we price it out per location per year so that it’s affordable to you and helps you meet your bottom-dollar budgeting needs for new account acquisition.

Your Course Needs
Relieve the Stress of Training

Most states require social services to facilitate both mandatory reporter and universal precautions (BBP) training, and any workplace is supposed to offer first aid and CPR training opportunities to employees that are potential responders for workplace emergencies. Our training solutions are effective, and we are more than happy to provide OSHA and state codes information to supplement your knowledge about your organization’s compliance needs. Use the More Information button below to request a copy of our Enterprise Training Packages sheet to see what our effective, affordable training model looks like.

This model is sustainable, compliant, affordable, and easy to track. Administrators are allowed to track the progress (0–100%) of their employees online anytime to ensure course completion, or reports can be proactively delivered to the administrators.

We are able to accommodate nearly any emergency preparedness, first aid and CPR, or related safety training course topic needed. Our training medians consist of a multitude of options extending from online to hands-on or blended techniques, including an in-house Train the Trainer program to meet core hands-on skills requirements, if needed. Check out some of our options below.

August 18, 2014

Leading the way in multilingual workplace technology-aided first aid response

Hiawatha, Iowa, August 24, 2009 – Think Safe delivers state-of-the art upgraded first aid innovations consistently, while maintaining its track record of meeting and exceeding industry standards. The Rugged+AED Self-contained Emergency Treatment (SET) System is one of those innovations, providing a compact and low cost-of-ownership rugged AED, color-coded first aid supply bags, and the highly endorsed Emergency Instruction Device (EID) all packaged in a rugged, waterproof Pelican case made to handle the toughest situations.

Top 100 Heart Hospitals – says that the system is comprehensive and a key first aid tool to supplement CPR and first aid training. “With over 3.8 million disabling workplace injuries and over 250,000 Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) deaths in the US annually, and first aid and CPR skills studies showing only a six-week retention, First Voice provides a quality solution for the retention problem and the failure to have the right supplies immediately accessible.” In a SCA event, studies show that a 4-minute or less time to defibrillation is one of the keys to survival and recovery of the victim.

“Our Rugged+AED SET System adds high value by its tough versatility and easy to find color-coded supplies matching our First Voice EID’s audible and visual coaching prompts,” says CEO/President of Think Safe Paula Wickham. “This system is designed for any rough environment that is subject to the elements, or venue that is expected to comply with OSHA’s general industry and workplace first aid and AED requirements or recommendations.”

More information can be found online (www.firstvoice.us).

With a recently added new EID “Language” button responders can now hear emergency instructions in Spanish or English, with the capability of 20 or more additional languages available. The contents of the color-coded first aid supply bags allow the Rugged+AED SET System to meet and exceed OSHA and ANSI’s newly updated 2008 first aid compliance standards.

New OSHA (194.07) First Aid Guidelines…

March 11, 2010

How do OSHA guidelines affect work comp premiums and insurance claims?  Here is a little detail on why first aid reportables can make all the difference….

First Aid or Recordable? New OSHA guidelines…..
Some workers’ compensation injuries are of such a minor nature that the law permits the employer to treat or refer for treatment of these injuries and pay for them privately rather than through the workers’ compensation insurance carrier. These injuries are known as First Aid and are not recordable injuries per OSHA guidelines and no claims file needs to be made up for them. All other injuries are considered Medical Treatment, which are recordable for OSHA guidelines and for which claims files are made up.

Due to the benefits employers derive from classifying injuries as first aid, it is necessary to understand which injuries can be so classified and when they must be reported to the insurer and to OSHA. This list of first aid treatments if comprehensive, i.e., any treatment not included on this list is not considered first aid for OSHA record keeping purposes. OSHA considers the listed treatments to be first aid regardless of the professional qualifications of the person providing the treatment; even when a physician, nurse, or other health care professional provides these treatments, they are considered first aid for record keeping purposes.

New Rules under OSHA 194.07
Note: MT = Medical Treatment FA = First Aid – 1 does of prescription medication now MT (Old rule: 2 doses MT)
– OTC med at prescription strength now MT (Old rule any dosage FA)
– Any number of hot/cold treatments now FA – (Old rule 2 or more treatments MT)
– Drilling a nail now FA – (Old rule MT)
– Butterfly bandage/Steri-Strip now FA – (Old rule MT)

All First Voice kits and Self-contained Emergency Treatment (SET) Systems are designed with careful consideration to these types of OSHA guidelines.  Contact us for more details on how first aid programs can be made easier for EHS and Safety Supervisors, 888-473-1777.  info@firstvoice.us

The Government’s Requirements on First Aid Preparedness

July 31, 2009

[tweetmeme]

Be it running a company or working for one, you need to know what is recommended for first aid treatment and preparedness protocols. There are groups like Raise Your Hand trying to spread awareness, and of course the United States Department of Labor: Occupational Safety & Health Administration (commonly known as OSHA) does its part to spread the word too.

Here’s how OSHA puts it:

It is a requirement of OSHA that employees be given a safe and healthy workplace that is reasonably free of occupational hazards. However, it is unrealistic to expect accidents not to happen. Therefore, employers are required to provide medical and first aid personnel and supplies commensurate with the hazards of the workplace. The details of a workplace medical and first aid program are dependent on the circumstances of each workplace and employer.

OSHA even provides general information that may be of assistance here.

Here at Think Safe we spend a lot of time and energy into making sure our products not only meet OSHA’s standards, but exceed them as well. Be it the First Aid Cube, our Online Training, top-rated ResQr First Aid & CPR Coach, or the American Lifeguard Association-endorsed Emergency Instruction Device, the First Voice line of products are setting new standards in emergency first aid preparedness for the home or business.

Minimum’s mentality will never do when it comes to saving a life. Why risk everything by not taking the appropriate actions to ensure the safety of your loved ones and employees? If you need more encouragement, just remember that Uncle Sam says so too.
