Coastal Video has some very good computer based software.  They will
customize and sell licenses.  Also, there are dozens of small businesses
that will develop customized ES&H software.  A search of the web will turn
up a bunch.  If not, I think I can dig up some names.

	Subject:	RE: Computer-based training

	In a 11/11/98 note to P2TECH, Steve Issacson (isaacsons@uwstout.edu
<mailto:isaacsons@uwstout.edu> ) asked, in part:
	"Is anyone aware of off-the-shelf training software or a firm that
specializes in developing customized systems?"
	This appears to be a hot topic.  I'm currently researching an
article on online regulatory and safety training, which will appear later
this Fall on the ChemAlliance site (www.chemalliance.org)
<http://www.chemalliance.org)> .  In the interim, one firm which provides
this service is AdvanceOnline (www.advanceonline.com)
<http://www.advanceonline.com)> .  
	By the way, guidance from OSHA regarding the sufficiency of online
training in meeting their requirements is posted at OSHA's site:
	The bottom line message in each of these documents is provided by
the following excerpt from the 11/22/94 document:
			"Thus, OSHA believes that computer-based training
programs can be 
			used as part of an effective safety and health
training program to
	satisfy OSHA training 
			requirements, provided that the program is
supplemented by the
	opportunity for trainees to ask questions of 
	a qualified trainer, and provides trainees with sufficient hands-on
experience. " 
	Hope this helps.
