The International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) has announced two new online training programs for safety sales and marketing professionals. The new courses are part of ISEA’s strategic initiative to provide quality professional development programs to broaden knowledge and competency in occupational health and safety.

The Introduction to Occupational Health and Safety (IOHS) course is designed to introduce professionals to the fundamentals of workplace health and safety. The course is geared towards professionals new to the occupational health and safety industry, including inside sales representatives. By completing this course, participants will work towards developing knowledge of the origination of occupational health and safety in the U.S., understanding risk management, the hierarchy of controls, as well as standards development and the organizations that develop them. They will also consider how occupational health and safety connect to people, company brand and reputation and profitability.

The Advanced Arc Flash Safety Training program is designed for safety sales professionals to gain a deeper understanding of the safety precautions involved in the electrical workplace. By completing this course, participants will have advanced knowledge about arc flash, arc rating, hazard analysis, and different safety standards and regulations. The course also dives into personal protective equipment (PPE) within the electrical industry, PPE ratings and why PPE is important, and the strategy for selecting PPE by matching to the hazard. Individuals who have completed the Qualified Safety Sales Professional (QSSP) course from ISEA will find the in-depth topics beneficial.

For the past 20 years, ISEA has been providing the Qualified Safety Sales Professional (QSSP) training program and designation, a recognized and sought-after achievement, to the sales and marketing personnel of personal protective equipment manufacturers and suppliers.

“ISEA continuously strives to develop the type of education programs that will help safety sales professionals become better safety partners to their customers,” said ISEA President Chuck Johnson.
