Personnel Management: University of Pittsburgh Medical Center
The medical center needed to comply with municipal regulatory requirements by providing standard core safety training for all facilities, as well as control costs and operate more productively. Two departments — Engineering and Maintenance (E&M), and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) — developed uLearn courses to meet the accreditation requirements for the renewal of stationary engineering licenses. EHS associates conducted one course at each of the monthly E&M departmental safety meetings. E&M managers tracked training completion and conducted makeup sessions. The program's success benefits patient safety and ensures all facilities have consistent and standardized safety training.
