Why Phylmar Academy?

Phylmar Academy places the best courses available at your disposal. We are constantly reviewing offerings, including testing and rating – something you probably don’t have time to perform. We want to make sure that you have the best available:

  • Curriculum: The course must have up-to-date curriculum that includes compliance requirements and best practices.
  • Designed for how adults learn best: Not everyone learns the same way. Some prefer reading, others watching a video. Experts agree – adults learn best from doing. When we review a course, whether it’s online or in-person, we are looking for interactive activities that help the learner to measure knowledge and skills they have gained.
  • Functional: We check to make sure the courses, especially online courses, work smoothly and have all the functions learners expect – ability to stop and return where you left off, quizzes, certificates, etc.
  • Value: Courses must meet our quality standards, then we look for courses that are the best value. That does not necessarily mean the least expensive. A comprehensive 2-hour course may be a much better value than a brief half-hour course.

Occupational Safety and Health

Whether it’s your first day on the job, any job, or you are a seasoned occupational safety and health professional, or you are a member of company management, your first job is to be safe. Your second job is to help keep your co-workers safe.

The total direct and indirect costs of workplace injuries and illnesses were estimated to be

$155,500,000,000

Workplace safety and health training is a win-win for workers and management.

In a recent survey of top 5 motivations for taking action on health and safety were:

  • Cost of workers’ compensation insurance (59%)
  • “Right thing to do” (51%)
  • “Increases profitability” (33%)
  • Federal/State rules (21%)
  • “Too many accidents” (29%)

All of these are excellent reasons to investment time and money for management and workers in training designed to decrease or eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses – resulting in fewer accidents, fatalities, injuries, and lost work days.
