STS's FAQs

 


Training Division


 

What training courses does your company provide?
How do I know what training courses I need?

Our company offers "hands-on" hazardous waste, emergency response, confined space entry, and a variety of other safety related courses under controlled simulated conditions as a practical alternative to traditional seminars.

Courses range from skill-building exercises to compliance training as well as regulatory awareness training in a variety of topics.

We can help your company identify the applicable training requirements of your operation and then recommend an integrated curriculum to minimize overlapping requirements.

All of our courses are specifically designed to meet federally mandated requirements. Please click here to view course descriptions or call our office toll free at 877-724-2744 to discuss any safety-related questions.




Do you offer on-line training?

No. We currently do not offer on-line training because we feel that trainees benefit from direct contact with the equipment they will be asked to use during the course of their employment.

Where is your facility located?

Our home office is located in Highland, Indiana in a 18,000 square foot training facility conveniently located 4 stoplights south of I-80,on Kennedy Avenue, about 6 miles west of I-65.


Comfortable classrooms and a large hands-on training area filled with props and scenarios are prominent features. We also have the capability to provide our courses at your site.




Do you offer training at other facilities?

We can set up a class specifically for your company at a location of your choosing. For some courses, we encourage clients to hold the training at their facility so that courses can be customized to provide hands-on scenarios using the plant-specific equipment employees will be expected to use during the course of their employment.
