As part of SOS’s comprehensive EHS software suite uses a technology foundation is based built on an enterprise-level LMS that includes:
What really sets SOS apart from traditional LMSs is that SOS has designed a comprehensive safety management system that is practical, intuitive and easy to use. Use for companies with strong safety training needs, making. SOS has built the perfect, customizable solution to meet a perfect fit for any all aspects of your company’s safety requirements.
We have created a one-stop-shop for online safety training programs, covering a wide range of topics that meet all of your health and safety needs.
The training record management system is very scalable. Thousands of classroom and online training records can be uploaded, including images of certificates. Once information is loaded in the system, records can be efficiently managed and notifications can be automatically issued when certifications are coming up for renewal.
With an integrated training matrix, you can manage all your employees’ training requirements. The matrix will identify and summarize training gaps, notify employees of company approved, scheduled classroom training, and assign online courses to employees.
There are two ways to manage classroom calendars. This feature allows you to manage your classrooms, instructors, and students across many locations and multiple training courses. It also allows your students to access your calendar online through the internet or a designated website where they can register for company-specific training classes. This convenient scheduling feature saves you time and administrative costs.
Our LMS can load popular course types, such as SCORM 1.2 and 2004, and also HTML5, JPEG, MP4 and PDF formats. You can also load certificates and supporting print materials to each course, which can be made available for each course based on simple logic rules. An example of a logic rule is to only present a certificate to the student after the student achieves the pass mark, which is calculated by our built-in exam engine.
Within the system, administrators can digitally re-create almost any company form and share it within their company. These forms are easily integrated into the system’s workflow engine. As an example, a competency validation form can integrate directly into an online course. Once the student completes the online theory portion of the course, the form is sent to their supervisor to perform a competency validation part of the training. These two parts of the course can then be combined to release a course certificate once the competency portion of the training is completed.
With this system, you can access training from our centralized network of training providers. Access about a thousand online health and safety courses from leading safety training organizations.
Our software includes a document management feature that allows administrators to load, review and monitor employee documents. Employee documents can include performance assessments, competency validation forms, annual reviews and other required forms.
Driver management is easy to setup with our web-based tracking system. Commercial driver information such as licence details, traffic violations, DOT certification, medical certificates, and more, easily loaded and tracked in our system.
The company system administrator can control the level of access to company settings, system features, and other accounts by assigning security clearance levels to each user role.
With our virtual proctoring feature, students must allow their device’s webcam to capture an image of their government-issued identification, as well as an online recording as they complete their training. This ensures the completion of the online course is done with integrity.
Our system includes an exam engine that allows you to custom-design exams for specific courses. You can use built-in evaluation tools to create your own pool of questions or re-create an evaluation by randomizing the order of questions and answers.
With our survey feature, you can quickly and easily survey information from the students upon course completion and report on the results.
We custom brand your EHS Software portal to conform with your company website branding, creating a seamless user experience for your employees.
Our solution uses the authentication process of your internal business systems to validate the user’s access to our system. Using the single sign-on (SSO) authentication process, this will simplify your employees’ login process. Once the employee logs into your own internal business system, they can then access our software directly without logging in again.
With our built-in Application Programming Interface (API), this allows you to integrate your existing business systems (i.e. payroll, finance, HR) with our system to automatically synchronize employee and their related training information.
Our built-in email notification feature is a great way to alert employees of changes that affect them. For example, by logging into their profile, employees will know which courses to take, be able to reset their password, and know when any of their course certificates are about to expire.
Administrators can easily create, track, and distribute course codes for a number of users to access a course regardless of whether there is an online account.
It is easy to search for information within our system. System administration can perform searches by filtering many fields, such as first name, last name, username, email address, course code, company name – just to name a few.
Our system also manages and tracks internal company reward systems using an online capability to update reward points for employees.
Our folder management capability allows you to capture your company’s policies and procedures for one-stop easy access. This includes digital sign off, affirmation statements and digital signatures.

Scott P., Apprenticeship Coordinator
Hi Velma, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say “THANK-YOU” so much for helping organize our standard 1st aid and CPR training that was conducted in the comfort of my home!!! All 10 of my participants/friends had a wonderful time learning how to save lives and tending to people in emergency situations. Julie was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She fit in with our crowd so well and helped make our learning experience an enjoyable one. Julie was professional and knowledgeable which was helpful as we had thousands of questions that she answered without any hesitation. We were surprised at how much we learned…even those of us who were previously trained before found ourselves learning new things that was never covered in previous training. Please pass our thank-you on to Julie as well for helping make our experience a memorable and enjoyable one…we all had fun learning!!! We look forward to making this an every 3 year tradition with SOS first aid and appreciated all your help/flexibility in meeting our needs.
Kind regards, Jacquie Fantetti & friends

Michael D., Training and Consulting Manager
“It was a pleasure having SOS First Aid provide First Aid training with the staff, they gave very positive feedback. Velma was professional in her approach and everyone was well trained by the end of the day. We will use SOS’ services again for the next round of First Aid training”
Sue Furlong, Company Trainer/ISO Co-ordinater, Gerrie Electric Wholesale Ltd
“SOS First Aid provided Kronos with First Aid and CPR training to our Joint Health and Safety Committee and a few interested employees. Velma was engaging and made what could have been dry material, interesting and informative. Everyone who took the course scored very well on the final exam and I attribute that to Velma’s instruction and engaging delivery of the material. Velma is friendly and very current in the area of health and safety. I would definitely hire her again in future.”
Jennifer Rea, Canadian Operations Manager, Kronos Inc.
Due to my job, I re-certify my CPR annually. For years, it was very difficult to find an organization which had classes to suit my busy schedule. Since I have found SOS First Aid Training Services, my life has become much easier. They have frequent courses at a variety of convenient locations taught by wonderful instructors. Now every year, I look no further than SOS First Aid Training Services. I would recommend them to anyone for all their CPR and First Aid Training needs.
Amanda, Personal Trainer and Pilates Instructor, At Home Fitnes
I really wanted to write you to thank you for all your patience coordinating everything with me. Secondly, I wanted to write you about Allison. We absolutely loved and appreciated her teaching. I have taken numerous first aid courses in the past and none of them have ever come close to what she delivered today. You have a truly excellent instructor that made the content funny, personal and extremely practical. I thanked her personally after class, but I wanted to make sure that you knew how pleased we were as well. Different individuals in the class kept coming up to me afterwards and telling me that they’ve never been taught first aid with such a phenomenal instructor. In the future, when we need any certification, I will most definitely be bringing you our business!
