What is S/P2®?
S/P2 is the automotive industry standard for Safety and Pollution Prevention training. The S/P2 online courses provide the knowledge and skills necessary to do your job effectively and efficiently while at the same time protecting yourself, your coworkers, and the environment. Our industry-specific content helps managers, technicians, safety supervisors, shop owners, and students alike stay safe and compliant on the job.
S/P2 includes a range of courses—everything from basic workplace safety topics to targeted training for collision, mechanical, and paint shop technicians.
Why Do You Need S/P2?
United States law mandates that companies not only ensure safety compliance in their shop, but that they also ensure that all employees received safety training that addresses the hazards they face on the job. In fact, this training must take place before the employee can begin working. Moreover, OSHA requires that employees receive annual training to ensure that they are up to date on the latest regulations. Failure to provide this training often results in significant fines and penalties.
S/P2 provides a convenient, cost-effective “one stop shop” for your compliance training. Our online courses are available 24/7 wherever there’s an internet connection. Employees can take their training as time permits and our learning management system will track their progress. If an employee completes the entire S/P2 course they will have all the safety and environmental compliance training they need for a whole year! And if employees need to review a topic, they can access S/P2 at any point during that year for a quick refresher.
How Can S/P2 Help Your Business?
Of course S/P2 helps keep you compliant with federal and state standards, meaning that you can keep working without fines, penalties, and work stoppages. But a safe workplace is also a productive—and profitable—workplace. The lessons contained in our S/P2 training can help you save money by reducing days lost to injury and other safety issues. Moreover, S/P2’s pollution prevention information helps prevent waste by promoting conservation-minded handling of chemicals and other shop materials. Careful handling of materials not only prevents leaks and spills, but it also ensures that employees do not use costly paints and solvents unnecessarily. It’s a win-win!
How Can S/P2 Help Your School?
Just like paid employees, students learning a trade also need safety training before working in a shop. S/P2 is written with all learners in mind, free from needless technical jargon and other unnecessary complexity - making it a perfect solution for students getting their first taste of safety and pollution prevention training. S/P2 can help get students started on the right path early, preparing them for a long, safety-focused career.
How Does S/P2 Work?
Once your facility is set up for S/P2, each user will receive a set of unique log-in codes giving them access to the training. As they make their way through the course, the system will track their progress. Users are able to stop mid-lesson and the system will save their location. They can pick up exactly where they left off. As users pass each lesson, they will earn a personal "Certificate of Completion" for that section. The certificate will be awarded online, but it can also be printed for display or inclusion in a personnel file.
The S/P2 course is typically sold as a facility-wide license, meaning that any new employees can be brought onto the program during the year at no additional cost. Protect yourself and your business with S/P2’s economical compliance solution.
