ClickSafety Celebrates 15th Year Anniversary!

ClickSafety delivers 15 years of industry-leading online safety training for construction, environmental and general industries.

Since 1999, ClickSafety has provided award-winning interactive safety training to more than 10,000 organizations worldwide.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif., July 19, 2014 -- ClickSafety.com, the leader in online safety training, celebrates its 15th year of delivering award-winning interactive safety training for the construction, environmental and general industries this July.

Founded in 1999 and attracting early marquee clients such as Avaya, Bovis Lend Lease, Webcor, Intel, Contractor's First, McCarthy and others, ClickSafety quickly established itself as the quality, cost-effective training alternative for the industries. The company has, over the course of its history, charted numerous milestones and set new standards for safety training and establishing an overall culture of safety within construction and general industries.

Among its accomplishments, ClickSafety designed and offered the first-ever online Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10-hour construction course, subsequently complementing that with the OSHA 30-hour construction course.
By 2007, ClickSafety had compiled a portfolio of more than 300 health and safety courses, with more than 50 of them available in Spanish -- a breadth of offerings that ensured the company met the needs of its clients at both a company and individual worker level.

From an industry standard, ClickSafety's Leading Cultural Change, a course that focused on creating and maintaining a culture of safety for companies, received two awards, including the Readers' Choice and Attendee Choice, from Industrial Safety and Hygiene News (ISHN). ClickSafety also partnered with McGraw Hill Construction on an industry-wide survey around safety management which was turned into a widely-read industry SmartMarket Report. And most recently, the company was recently named as one of Inc.'s Top 100 Education Companies and become an IACET Authorized provider of Continuing Education Units/Contact Hours.

“We’re proud to celebrate 15 years of meeting the safety training needs of our clients, thanks to the efforts and dedication of our talented team,” says ClickSafety Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Tonry. “By building relationships with clients and partnering with them to create quality training, the team has helped foster the growing recognition that the safety and wellness of every worker is the single most important aspect of the construction industry. This growing safety awareness by employers marks very positive momentum in the industry.”

Over the course of its 15-year history, the company has charted numerous milestones, set new standards for safety training, and been a leader in creating broad awareness of the importance of establishing sustainable safety cultures within construction.

Some of ClickSafety’s many accomplishments:

  • Designed and offered the first online Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10-Hour construction course

  • Partnered with AGC, the largest construction trade organizations in the country, to be the premier online training provider to their 30,000 member firms
  • Partnered with McGraw Hill Construction on an industry-wide survey of safety management which was turned into a widely read industry Safety SmartMarket Report

  • International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) authorization to offer CEU and Contact Hours for a handful of online training courses and received Honorable Mention for the IACET 2014 Exemplar Training Award

“Not bad for our first 15 years,” Brian says. “With each success, we’re building on our momentum, and I’m confident that we’ll continue accomplishing great things over the next 15.”
