    Our Difference









    At CDP, we understand that it's an aggravation to try to compare products when the providers will not tell you their price upfront. Many providers make it very difficult to find out their costs, like they have something to hide or are embarrassed about. Price transparency helps you obtain price information easily, which allows you to make useful comparisons of costs of alternative choices. Price transparency also means that you understand how our prices are set and you are aware of any price discrimination (different prices charged to different customers). In the online HSE training markets you often have difficulty finding useful price information.

    CDP is upfront about all prices which are easy to understand and best of all... with no hidden costs.

    Safety Training...A Tool for LIFE.

    We appreciate your business and that's why we want to talk to you in person to make sure you purchase the right solution.

    If we know of a better solution...even if it means losing business, we will tell you.

    We are here to assist, inform, educate and guide you.

e-Learning Development Services

RapidCDP's collaborative rapid eLearning team is leading the evolution of rapid elearning. Leading companies around the world have capitalized on our rapid eLearning services. Rapid e-learning is emerging as the fastest-growing category of online training. It is generally defined as Web-based training that can be created in days and/or weeks and is typically authored with the assistance of our client's subject-matter experts (SMEs). Rapid elearning projects account for more than one-third of our current training-related projects and likely will comprise half of all elearning initiatives within the next three years.

Instructional design models: ADDIE process.Perhaps the most common model used for creating instructional materials is the ADDIE Process. This acronym stands for the 5 phases contained in the model:

  • Analyze – analyze learner characteristics, task to be learned, etc.
  • Design – develop learning objectives, choose an instructional approach
  • Develop – create instructional or training materials
  • Implement – deliver or distribute the instructional materials
  • Evaluate – make sure the materials achieved the desired goals

Most of the current instructional design models are variations of the ADDIE process.

Rapid prototyping: A sometimes utilized adaptation to the ADDIE model is in a practice known as rapid prototyping.

Proponents suggest that through an iterative process the verification of the design documents saves time and money by catching problems while they are still easy to fix. This approach is not novel to the design of instruction, but appears in many design-related domains including software design, architecture, transportation planning, product development, message design, user experience design, etc. In fact, some proponents of design prototyping assert that a sophisticated understanding of a problem is incomplete without creating and evaluating some type of prototype, regardless of the analysis rigor that may have been applied up front. In other words, up-front analysis is rarely sufficient to allow one to confidently select an instructional model. For this reason many traditional methods of instructional design are beginning to be seen as incomplete, naive, and even counter-productive.

Summary of OSHA's New Record Keeping Rule
by Master Admin - Monday, 25 July 2016, 05:28 PM


The final rule that will require some establishments to electronically submit OSHA record keeping data has been unleashed. And, it's not evil. In fact, I do not believe this rule will be a big burden on folks; complying with it shouldn't ruin anyone's day. The final rule is less stringent than the proposed rule had originally planned it to be.

The final rule becomes effective January 1 of 2017, though the first batch of data will have a deadline of July 1 of 2017. Please note that there are no changes to the requirements regarding OSHA record keeping responsibilities (though some were reiterated); nothing has changed except that some of us will be submitting our data electronically.

Scroll beyond the downloads to review the summary in full detail, or click one of the following to jump to a specific section:


The following downloads are available for your review and use. Clicking on a download will open a new browser window where you can view and/or download. You may freely circulate these.

  • Summary of OSHA's New Record Keeping Rule - The majority of the text on this final rule web page was copied from this document; the four-page PDF is a handier and more portable version of the information found on this page.
  • PowerPoint of the Final Rule - Can be opened in "Read Only" mode. Editing is not allowed, but it may be freely presented, distributed, and shared by individuals, corporations, and safety and environmental associations that do not charge for attendance. Commercial use is forbidden and subject to U.S. copyright laws.
  • Final Rule - This is the complete 273 page final rule PDF, for your complete reading enjoyment! If you only want to know what the new rule requires and how it affects you, then view the summary.
  • List of High Hazard Industries - This is the new rule's list of "high hazard industries," identified by NAICS code. This is important because any establishment (with 20 to 249 employees) in this industry list will be required to electronically submit the OSHA 300A annually.


There are two groups of business establishments that are required to submit data. The first group includes establishments with 250 or more employees. The second group includes establishments with 20 to 249 employees, but only in industries identified by the final rule as "high hazard."

Please note that the employee number "triggers" are based on employees at a particular ESTABLISHMENT, and NOT the total number of employees company-wide. An establishment is any physical location in operation for at least a year. Two examples follow.

ABC Company has 300 employees, all operating at one location; ABC is obviously required to submit data. But, assume that XYZ Corporation also has 300 employees, but three physical locations, and that 100 employees are assigned to each location. Is XYZ required to submit data? No. The size of the establishment triggers data submission, not the total size of the corporate workforce. This treatment is in line with the 1904 standard's existing requirement that instructs us to record injuries and illnesses by establishment. While many multi-location businesses create aggregate company-wide 300A summary forms combining data from all of their establishments, they are not required to do so. And, they will not be required to electronically submit composite company-wide data. This is a good thing; a great deal of data would otherwise be submitted twice and therefore skew the collected data.

This aforementioned establishment treatment also applies to those with 20 to 249 employees; 50 employees in one location triggers data submission, while five employees each at 10 locations means no data submission for any of them. Please note that data submission is not required for ALL establishments with 20 to 249 employees, as is the case with establishments of 250 or more employees. For this smaller group, only those in high hazard industries (classified by NAICS code and characterized by historical incident rates) are required to submit data. The list of high hazard industries will NOT change every year. The final rule does say that the list may change, but any changes would require a further rulemaking process, so I don't anticipate this list changing very often.

Also, from time to time, OSHA will request "special purpose" data submission. OSHA may want to collect data from all establishments with a particular NAICS code, for example residential roofing contractors. Or, it may want to collect data for all establishments involved with handling infectious materials. Any establishments that meet a special purpose data collection initiative will receive written notification from OSHA, so there will be no surprises. Please note that these special purpose data initiatives will even apply to establishments that are not otherwise required to submit data; in these cases, even establishments with just 15 employees will be required to take part in the particular special purpose data collection effort.


Establishments with 250 or more employees are required to submit data from the OSHA forms 301 (incident report), 300 (log) and 300A (summary). Please note that for the first submission year, 2017, only the 300A data will be submitted; data from the 301 and 300 will be required beginning in 2018. This phase-in scheme is undoubtedly due to the unprecedented volume of data that OSHA is going to be receiving in 2017 when it becomes operational, and the fact that the system won't have been combat proven yet. It will be a far easier task to work the bugs out of a system that isn't completely inundated with data the very first time it's used.

Establishments of 20 to 249 employees, in high hazard industries, are required to submit only the 300A.

Data will be submitted annually. This is great news; the proposed rule called for quarterly submission of data. During the comment period of the rulemaking process, interested citizens and industry groups voiced their concerns; many of them were not thrilled with the idea of submitting quarterly data, mostly on logistical grounds. And, the folks at OSHA listened, and ultimately agreed. I have always encouraged business leaders to participate in the rulemaking process by submitting their ideas during the comment period, and this is why; OSHA takes our concerns seriously.


The first electronic submission of data will be due July 1, 2017. Establishments with 250 or more employees, and those in high hazard industries with 20 to 249 employees, will be submitting their 2016 OSHA 300A summary data by that deadline. Since establishments must post the 2016 300A from February 1 to April 30 of 2017 (a quarter year), there is no reason why they shouldn't have that data ready to be electronically submitted by July of 2017.

In 2018, establishments with 250 or more employees will be required to submit data from their 2017 301 incident report and 300 log, along with the 300A, by July 1.

Beginning in 2019, the submission deadline will be moved up to March 2 for all establishments required to submit data. Since this will still be a full month past the requirement to post the 300A summary form in the workplace, there shouldn't be any reason for not submitting the data on time.


Personally identifiable information will NOT be collected. All of the information on the 300A summary form will be collected; there is nothing of a personal nature. The 300 log form will omit employee names. The 301 incident report form will omit data from the entire left side of the form (fields one through nine). Since personally identifiable info will not be collected, employee privacy should prevail.

Also, the final rule says that the electronic data collection system will include safeguards to ensure that inadvertently submitted personally identifiable information is not collected. For example, it's possible that a person may mistakenly include information of this nature on the 300 log - the record keeper could indicate "Bob had three stitches" in the brief description field for the case. OSHA is intending to implement a system that will scrub Bob's name in such a case.


All collected data, minus the aforementioned personally identifiable information, will be publicly available on the OSHA website. This data will be available for all interested parties to see, as is currently the case for an employer's OSHA violation history.


Setting up user accounts will be similar to how we do it for many of our online accounts, so one may assume it will be fairly intuitive. Self-registration will be accomplished via an online form. When complete, an email will be generated in order to obtain login information. Sound familiar?

The actual data submission system has not been developed yet, but it will be. Since the first batch of submissions won't be due until July 1, 2017, there should be sufficient time for OSHA to accomplish the feat; the final rule states that synchrony with existing software platforms, to make the process as user friendly as possible, may be a possibility in its development.

80,000 establishments are already reporting record keeping data to OSHA's ODI (OSHA Data Initiative), and 80% of them are doing so electronically. 200,000 establishments are reporting data to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Survey of Occupational Injuries & Illnesses (SOII); 90% are submitting their record keeping data electronically. So, there is no reason to assume that developing a system for the rest of establishments to follow suit will be much of a technological problem.

OSHA also intends to create a help desk to assist users with the process. One may wonder, will the help desk be staffed by federal employees whose business day may end at 1600 hours, or perhaps by civilian contractors available for second shift duties? We'll see.


The greatly increased volume of data that OSHA will receive will be of great value from an occupational injury and illness epidemiology standpoint. Whether OSHA, injury epidemiologists and various other safety number crunchers, and the general public at large, will be able to succeed in utilizing this data won't be known for years.

And, now for the million dollar question... Will OSHA also use this data specifically to target establishments and/or entire industries with high incident rates? YES. The final rule states that it will be used to enhance OSHA's enforcement efforts, and there is no reason why it would not. Again, it will be years before we'll know whether OSHA has succeeded in this regard.

OSHA has utilized incident rates to dial in enforcement activity for years; this door is already wide open. There are various enhanced enforcement programs that are at least partly based on incident rates. For example, due to the National Emphasis Program for excavation activity (a very high hazard activity), any trench can be inspected without OSHA first having observed an imminent danger situation or receiving a complaint or referral. Just having a worker in a trench can trigger an inspection. If incident rates weren't so high for excavation work, this wouldn't be the case. There are quite a few national, regional, and local emphasis programs! Other initiatives, such as Site-Specific Targeting, also resulted in inspections opened on account of incident rates.


The new rule also restates some existing requirements. Employers can't retaliate against employees for reporting injury and illness cases and must inform employees of their right to report such cases (free of retaliation). And, the employer's reporting procedure must be reasonable and not discourage reporting. There is nothing new here and therefore no new burden on employers has been created.

One may wonder why the federal government is spending our tax dollars on creating new rules with provisions that simply restate existing ones. OSHA believes that restating and re-clarifying existing requirements will persuade non-compliant employers to finally get with it. Of course, this is wishful thinking. The only employers not already complying with these requirements are owned and operated by those who truly don't care about employee safety and health, who can't be expected to begin complying just because a rule has been restated.

OSHA Top 10 2015

OSHA’s 10 Most Cited Violations for 2015 Announced at NSC Event

OSHA has released the preliminary top 10 most frequently cited violations for Fiscal 2015, which were announced at the recently held National Safety Council Congress and Expo.

The list isn’t much different from those of previous years. Comparing it with last year’s for instance, 2015’s preliminary top 10 still has Fall protection(1926.501) as its number one most cited violation. This is actually the fifth time that this violation is topping the list. The other commonly cited violations still held their usual positions except a few changes in Ladders and Electrical & Wiring Methods. So do we always expect the same list year in year out? Moreover, does this suggest that despite being provided with a fairly specific list of things to focus on every year, we’re still somehow missing the mark?


As part of the Department of Labor, OSHA has indeed impacted positively on workplace safety and health conditions through its education, training, outreach and assistance but does the repetition we’re seeing suggest that perhaps OSHA is too lenient in its approach to enforcement?

OSHA’s Top 10 Most Cited Violations in Fiscal 2015

  1. Fall Protection (1926.501)
  2. Hazard Communication (1910.1200)
  3. Scaffolding (1926.451)
  4. Respiratory Protection (1910.134)
  5. Lockout/Tagout (1910.147)
  6. Industrial Powered Trucks (1910.178)
  7. Ladders (1926.1053)
  8. Electrical Wiring Methods (1910.305)
  9. Machine Guarding (1910.212)
  10. Electrical General Requirements (1910.303)

Considering the top10 lists of previous years, it’s likely that the final list to be published in December will be no different than the recently released preliminary list. It’s important for employers to assess their workplaces and determine the best approach in handling the frequent violations that have remained on the list if applicable to their operation.

What is The Value of Keeping Your Workers Safe…
by Master Admin - Saturday, 14 February 2015, 05:54 PM

Most organizations want to keep their employees safe. However, there are a lot of companies that don’t fully appreciate the total value in workers safety… or realize all of the potential costs associated with cutting corners on safety training and Proper Protective Equipment (PPE).

The fact is, businesses spend around $170 billion a year on injuries and illnesses in the workplace. However, it is reported that workplaces that establish safety and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs between 20-40%. That is a HUGE savings for many companies trying to turn a profit and build their business. That turnaround in savings might even be the difference in business sustainability and business success.

By keeping workers safe and healthy, they are more productive. If a business can avoid workers’ compensation claim costs while improving the amount of work and the quality of work, then doesn’t it make sense to keep those workers safe and healthy? When a star shortstop gets hurt, a manager will look for the best substitute off the bench. Generally, the replacement player lacks some of the defensive skills and/or offensive output, and the team becomes more vulnerable and less successful while the star is on the mend. Injuries are a big part of sports success. They are also a big part of business success.

Beyond productivity, business leaders are responsible for the health and well being of employees. Workers look to us to be safe… and to feel safe. They need to trust in us and our procedures, and in the equipment that we provide. If they are worried about their health and safety, they are not working to their full potential… and they are more susceptible to something going wrong.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4,405 fatal occupational injuries occurred at U.S. workplaces in 2013. In the preceding year, there were 905,690 days off resulting from occupational illnesses and injuries costing businesses nearly $170 billion.

Injuries hurt businesses every day. We know from Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) that falls are the leading cause of injury, but there are many violations adding cost to the bottom line. Nearly 4,000 violations were reported on respiratory equipment alone totaling $2.4 million in annual fines.

The info-graphic below created by the Asbestos Institute and posted by OSHA illustrates the value of safety.


It is often said that our organization doesn’t just deliver safety training products -- we deliver safety. This holistic approach delivers a cascade of benefits for those in which we partner by reducing your costs and increasing productivity, while always focusing on getting your workers home safely at the end of each day.

What's OSHA Planning for 2014?

What's OSHA Planning for 2014?

Topic: Enforcement and Inspection

Here's a quick review of OSHA's rulemaking plans for 2014 and what they might mean for you and your company

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) says that the regulations OSHA will be pursuing in 2014 are part of a plan/prevent/protect approach, "designed to ensure employers and other regulated entities are in full compliance with the law every day, not just when the Department of Labor engages an employer."

DOL is emphasizing greater openness and transparency by giving employers, workers, and others greater access to information concerning workplace conditions and expectations. The goal, says the department, is for compliance to become a more cooperative exercise.

New Final Rules Anticipated for 2014

OSHA plans to issue several final rules in 2014, as well as move proposed rules closer to implementation. Initiatives addressed in the regulatory agenda include:

  • Confined spaces in construction. A final rule is expected early in 2014.
  • Occupational injury and illness recording and reporting requirements. OSHA plans to revise the reporting requirements regarding the obligations of employers to report to OSHA the occurrence of fatalities and injuries that require hospitalization. A final rule is scheduled for April 2014.
  • Slips and Falls—Personal Fall Protective Systems. OSHA has a final rule awaiting action by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that will incorporate personal fall protection systems into the existing general industry rule for Walking and Working Surfaces (29 CFR 1910.23) that reflects new technologies. The final rule is expected in June 2014.
  • Electric power transmission and distribution. A final rule awaiting action by the OMB would update requirements for foot protection and aerial lift fall protection for electrical installations.

Great news! Our online training is $47.56 per person with unlimited training on all courses.

Proposed Rules Moving Forward in 2014

  • Modernizing recordkeeping. Under a proposal, certain employers would be required to submit injury and illness recordkeeping data electronically
  • Injury and illness prevention plan (I2P2). OSHA is shaping a proposed rule that would require employers to develop a formal program to reduce workplace injuries and illnesses through a systematic process that proactively addresses workplace safety and health hazards. A notice of proposed rulemaking is expected in September 2014.
  • Occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica. A proposal published in the Federal Register on September 12, 2013, would establish a new limit of 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air. Hearings on the proposal are scheduled to begin on March 18, 2014.
  • Whistleblower protection. New rules have been proposed to establish consistent and transparent procedures for filing whistleblower complaints.
  • Cranes and derricks in construction. The agency plans to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking that would address operator certification and other issues.

A number of regulations are in the pre-rule stage or are at various levels of review:

  • Bloodborne pathogens. The agency is considering the continued need for the rule in light of overlap and possible conflicts with other regulations.
  • Infectious diseases. A possible standard would require that employers establish a comprehensive infection control program.

  • Preventing back-over injuries and fatalities. OSHA has requested information and has held stakeholder meetings to discuss emerging technologies that address the risks of backing operations.
  • Reinforced concrete in construction. OSHA says current rules may not adequately address the hazards; the agency is seeking information on the topic.
  • Combustible dust. Rulemaking has begun, but no proposal has been issued.

In addition, OSHA continues to review its chemical standards. The majority of existing permissible exposure limits (PELs) were adopted in 1971, and only a few have been updated since that time.
