Customer review

This is a great training tool.  The video and associated discussion that will be generated is very relevant to our work situation.
Bruce Kosugi,  EHS Manager - Spectra Energy
A very different slant on the topic of safety.  It is interesting to see that there are examples of situations which could easily be compared to our processes and procedures. This direction of safety training is more in tune with our requirements.  South Hook LNG Terminal Co LTD
