How Infinit-I Workforce Decreased Yearly Workplace Accident Costs by 50.7%

BR Williams Trucking Warehousing Logistics Workplace accidentBR Williams is a trucking, warehousing, distribution, and logistics company based in Alabama with 156 drivers. Allan Hicks is their Vice President of Operations and the 2020 American Trucking Association’s Safety Director of the Year.

BR Williams was having trouble getting all drivers in for face-to-face safety training at the same time. They were also facing a large number of preventable accidents per year and excessive workplace accident costs effecting their bottom line.

lnfinit-1 Workforce Solutions learning management system provided the tools needed to ensure all employees receive mandatory training. BR Williams was able to provide safety training, give access to new company policies, and include corrective action training to reduce workplace accident issues.

Infinit-I is dedicated to improving safety in the heavily regulated and litigated transportation industry. It is important to have up-to-date, ongoing training that is documented and easily accessible, and Infinit-I has the tools available that allowed BR Williams to meet these needs.

Implementing Training Solutions to Meet Real Needs

Holding face-to-face safety meetings that are accessible to everyone is a problem and requires hours of scheduling to pull off successfully. BR Williams needed a new training protocol that is easily adoptable, customizable, and adaptable to fit into the schedules of executives and drivers.

With an upward trend in preventable workplace accident issues, costs were soaring, and we’ve found the best way to lower those costs is ensuring that drivers have ongoing safety training and reminders.

Mr. Hicks bought videos to try to tackle this training predicament but realized that those got old and he would have to buy new ones. Software programs also required updates, at additional costs, to stay current.

He needed a way to ensure that along with the regulated safety training, employees and drivers could get information specific to their company.

How do we make training efficient and effective? What do we bring to the table that other training systems do not? It’s all in the details.

All of our clients get a custom-branded online interface where they can upload all their training materials and not lose what they already have that’s working. Each company gets up to 20 pieces of custom training at no additional charge.

This means they are able to have their orientation materials on the platform so new hires can complete before they come onsite. We are capable of uploading employee handbooks, calendar events, and messages from executives to spread to the entire company, and a lot more.

Mobility
The lnfinit-1 platform can be accessed on employee mobile devices or home computers. If there are over-the-road drivers, they can log in and complete training while they’re away from the home terminal.

This feature cuts out the need for face-to-face safety meetings to go over routine training, also eliminating the excuse that they were on the road during the safety meeting.

Dedication
Each company is assigned a dedicated Client Success Team and will have access to their team anytime during business hours, without excessive wait times. The dedicated Client Success Team will send step-by-step instructions to clients on how to get their drivers on their individual training site.

The Client Success team does the majority of initial set-up: loading all employees, custom content, and orientation documentation into the system, as well as assigning the initial video assignments to employees. CSRs get to know their clients’ needs and wants and will give recommendations on how to get drivers ( or other employees) to actively use the system and make suggestions on training.

Automation
We can automate reports of completed/incomplete assignments and user activity. The system will also auto-generate emails to notify employees when training is assigned and/or overdue, as well as send achievement certificates on completion of a course.

We also send automatic emails to notify administrators when training is completed. lnfinit-I is capable of running application programming interfaces (APls) that can integrate to update user lists (add users/deactivate users), make assignments for new hires, and auto-assign corrective action training.

Retainability
Most online training platforms offer 25-60-minute videos that are hard to watch on a mobile device and cover too much information at once. Longer videos have been shown to lose interest and the information is not kept.

The 5-8 minute videos on the lnfinit-I platform focus on a specific topic at a time and follow micro-learning study findings to ensure that the driver can retain the information presented and reduce workplace accident problems.

Selection
lnfinit-1 has a video catalog selection of over 850 videos on file, available to all clients. We can also add custom content that is available to only the specific client requesting.

Results
BR Williams has been able to increase productivity by decreasing orientation time; their orientation program is now 2 days and the drivers get on the road quicker. Their preventable accidents are down from 34 per year in 2010 to 18 in 2018 and total costs of accidents is down 50. 7% from 2010 through 2018.

lnfinit-I has increased their driver safety training adoption to 94%, versus the 60-70% that could show for in-person safety meetings. Not only are the drivers benefiting from lnfinit-I, but all company employees receive training through the same platform, instead of scheduling face-to-face meetings with individual departments. As the table shows, this has led to a significant decrease in workplace accident costs.
