USA-based Barnhart Crane & Rigging has partnered with Industrial Training International (ITI) to integrate its Learning Hub and online content libraries into its employee training strategy.

The partnership will see Barnhart deliver all online learning content – such as OSHA 10 from ClickSafety, ITI’s crane and rigging library, in addition to its own material ­– in one place. Using the integrated API interface of the ITI Learning Hub, all training will be seamlessly documented in Barnhart’s enterprise software, Barnhart said.

According to Barnhart, the ITI Learning Hub could save the company time in the physical administration of its safety training process, while significantly reducing data entry errors.

Jeff Latture, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Barnhart, said the company reached out to ITI as it wanted to improve its training offering. “We have worked with ITI formally since 2010, most notably as partners in our Memphis-based collocated training centre, and in the development of its ASME-credentialed online rigging engineering programme.”

Barnhart will launch its new ‘Barnhart University’ over the course of 2021 to its nationwide network of branches.
