ACTi is leading industry through change to safety training by “setting the industry minimum standard for training material content and delivery of safety training programs”.

ACTi is celebrating our “20th” anniversary in 2014, serving our clients by providing the finest safety training industry has to offer. ACTi is among one of the first safety training companies in North America to be “annually audited by an industry expert professional engineer”. The main purpose of these audits is to ensure our training material content and safe-work practices are in accordance and compliant to the most current published applicable national and international standards. The audits also reduce responsibility of liability in the event of an injury accident for ACTi, our Instructors and our clients.

ACTi safety training programs are standardized therefore applicable to all company locations worldwide. Standardization of this safety training Provides corporate office with total traceability and assurance that the safety training is consistent in delivery throughout every location.

ACTi’S in-house “Train-The-Trainer” programs are available for companies with over 50 workers or multiple locations worldwide.

When ACTi’s safety training programs and methodology are properly implemented and maintained the company could easily realize a “reduction of 10% or more of all applicable non-tangible costs” in the first year per location.
