Liability and the Importance of Keeping Accurate Training Records
Whether one of your responders becomes injured, or someone they're trying to help gets hurt, expired certifications or a lack of records can leave your organization open to a possible lawsuit.
Are your team members trained?
The first question you might ask of a new recruit is what training they have had. When you’re on-site at an emergency, other things tend to take priority. Do you know whether they’ve been trained adequately in what they need to do?
It’s important to track exactly what training each of your members has received. You can do this using a team management solution, spreadsheet, or journal. Whatever method you use, you’ll need to be able to access the information quickly whether you’re at the office, at home, or deployed in the field.
D4H Personnel & Training is a cloud-based training and qualification management solution that can be accessed from anywhere, on any device. The platform is highly proactive and designed to allow you to easily manage the administration of personnel, qualifications, training, attendance, and availability. With D4H, you can access personnel records, qualifications, availability, attendance, and past experience and benefit from structured and audit-ready data regardless of your location.
Are your responders current?
It’s vitally important for your member’s training to be kept up to date and it can be difficult to keep track of various training schedules and qualification expirations. Tracking these on pen and paper or a spreadsheet is no easy task, a good information management solution will proactively alert you to any upcoming cert expirations and remove the burden of tracking this manually.
Should your liability ever be called into question, you can be confident that your team was fully compliant and have an accurate record to demonstrate this.
D4H Personnel & Training’s built-in qualification management tool will automatically determine who is missing qualifications based on the expectations for their role and forecast expiry dates to determine when the next course is required. The software will pro-actively notify personnel and training officers before any qualifications expire.
