Greenius (Formerly LS Training System)
Ontario Government Grant Program now available to Ontario employers covers up to 83% of the cost for companies under 50 employees and 66% of the costs for companies over 50 employees. 
New for Spring 2015 — we come to you!  Greenius is now a full-service training company.  The on-line videos teach the basics of operation, proper techniques and hazard awareness to both existing and new employees — no software, no DVD’s, no VHS. LS Training has a library of 27 videos, complete with interactive online exams.  Once the exams are passed, the system generates the training checklists, each takes 10 minutes to be done with a trainer/supervisor either on your own or we come to you — the employee demonstrates their basic knowledge and skills, and then sign off! The system stores records and reports of all training data, which can help you win your bids, as Health and Safety of commercial clients have strict requirements which this meets.
Brand New: Supervisor Training Series. These 7 videos are specific to your foreman, crew leaders and crew managers. Effectively promote your best people with courses like: Morning Prep, Safety and Training, Meeting and Beating the Budget, Customers Count, Defensive Driving, Quality Counts, Coaching and Motivating, and later in the year — Conflict Resolution.
Create your own Tailgate Library and store them in the system-even add your own; diplomas for your employees that pass all the courses.
Coming in 2015: Mini X and Conflict Resolution
