DuPont Sustainable Solutions teams up with NTUC LearningHub to roll out 450 renowned technical courses in light of increased workplace safety risks.
Singapore 21 May 2020 – DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS), a leading global provider of operations management consulting services, and NTUC LearningHub (NTUC LHUB), Singapore’s largest Continuing Education and Training (CET) provider, announced today their strategic collaboration to democratize internationally-recognized Safety, Maintenance & Reliability, and Human Resources training in Singapore. Over 450 courses will be made available through e-learning and in-person training and rolled out through key launch activations.
The collaboration, first of its kind in DSS’ venture into Southeast Asia, was driven by the heightened need to augment safety management capabilities and competencies in Singapore. This is underpinned by both the rising trend of workplace deaths and injuries, and the necessity for businesses to appoint dedicated safety personnel in light of the new and enhanced Safety Management Measures in the workplace, post-circuit breaker.
As the largest provider of Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) training in Singapore, NTUC LHUB will complement and enrich its current in-person and Virtual Live Classroom (VLC) training with DSS’ renowned methodology through asynchronous learning online. Ranked top environment, health and safety (EHS) consultancy for brand preference by independent research company Verdantix, DSS boasts award-winning learning and development content that can boost the training of workers in Singapore to bring operations and workplace safety to international standards.
“Now more than ever, world-class training, especially in workplace safety, needs to remain accessible through multiple delivery formats in light of the Covid-19 social distancing measures. We are therefore thrilled to be able to roll out DSS’ Safety and Maintenance programs, which have been implemented by almost 200,000 professionals across the globe,” says Tay Ee Learn, Director of the Technical Skills Product Division at NTUC LHUB.
“Working with best-in-class industry partners such as DSS is a springboard for NTUC LHUB to enhance online learning in technical skills for Singaporeans through the accessibility of topnotch content. This builds on our other online learning initiatives, such as our partnership with GO1 that makes available adaptive and technology skills courses online,” he adds.
As part of the launch activation, NTUC LHUB will be offering learners free seven-day access to up to five DSS courses from themes such as ‘Supervisor Skills’, ‘Hazard and Incident Investigation’ and ‘Workplace Safety’. The CET provider will also roll out a free COVID-19 Response microlearning series by DSS which includes training videos on ‘Emerging Viruses: The COVID-19 Pandemic’, ‘Universal Precautions Against Infection’, ‘Fear and Anxiety: Living with Uncertainty’ and ‘Working Remotely: Stay Productive and Connected’.
In addition, to help companies enhance their workforce training in Safety, Maintenance & Reliability, and Human Resources, NTUC LHUB will leverage the collaboration to work with union leaders, Company Training Committees (CTCs) and business leaders to develop and curate department-specific, instructor-led training based on DSS’ renowned Learning & Development content.
Commenting on the collaboration, Srinivasan Ramabhadran, Regional Managing Director of Asia Pacific at DSS says, “I am very excited about this partnership with NTUC LHUB. In current COVID-19 times, the need to upgrade and diversify our skills cannot be stressed more and making that developmental need available at your fingertip using e-learning is what this partnership is bringing to the fore. As a start, we are offering the four modules related to COVID-19 on a complimentary basis. We are offering a diverse suite of courses across safety to reliability. These courses will bring tremendous value to the local workforce to upgrade themselves and stay relevant to the industry. This is just a starting of our strong relationship and shared value on upskilling our society to meet the demands of our ever-changing market needs.”
