Yes, the Grainger Online SafetyManager Safey System Complete and the Grainger Online SafetyManager Safey System Core are 12-month subscriptions, starting from the date you receive your welcome email.

Every Grainger Online SafetyManager Safey System Complete subscription comes with the full set of safety tools and resources plus 50 employee registrations, or “seats”, and access to our robust Learning Management System (or LMS). Additional Employee Seats may be purchased at any time, in any quantity, starting with just one.  

Administrators can use the Employee Seats and LMS to:

  • Create documents from our templates and share them online.
  • Upload company-owned documents and share them online.
  • Track shared documents as read and understood.
  • Assign and track safety meetings.
  • Assign and track classroom or contractor training.
  • Keep electronic records of safety or other certifications held by employees.
  • Create custom courses and exams and track them.
  • Purchase online courses from our library and assign and track them (as Tokens or Unlimited Packages).

Additional employee seats, above the 50 included seats per administrator, may be purchased in any quantity and at any time. When purchasing Unlimited Training Packages you do not need to purchase additional seats as they are included in the Unlimited Packages.

While not true in every situation, typically one Safety Leader is not solely responsible for hundreds of employees. The subscription assumes up to 50 employees per manager at no additional cost.

Training Tokens are one way to gain access to our library of web-based safety training courses. One Token equals one course. You may purchase any number of tokens, and quantity discounts do apply. Tokens are a good approach if you are doing occasional training with a more limited number of employees or if you are assigning seven or fewer courses on average, per-employee, per year. We are happy to help you determine which online training option is best for your situation.

The Tokens do not expire as long as the subscription period is current.

Yes, the Safety Administrator can assign new users that come into the program if an employee leaves and that employee has not started a course under the unlimited license. If the original employee has started one (or more courses) under the unlimited license, the unlimited license cannot be transferred or re-assigned.

Yes, the Unlimited Training Option fee expires after 12 months and will need to be paid every year in addition to the annual subscription fee.

Additional Employee Seats (above the 50 included in your subscription) may be purchased at any time, in any quantity, starting with just one. You may also purchase additional Training Tokens or Unlimited Training Seats at any time during your subscription. 

If you are adding to your Unlimited Package, then the fees are prorated to match the remaining time left in your subscription period. For example, if you purchased the Unlimited Training Option for 100 employees, and then you hire an additional 25 people after three months, you will only pay for nine months of the Unlimited Training Option cost for 25 additional users aligned to the original renewal date of your subscription.

Yes, if you want to have four different people assigning classes, then each manager would need to have their own Administrator rights subscription at the individual subscription price per manager. (Quantity and other Discounts may apply.)

For the one Administrator package, only one Administrator account can be set up. An Administrator can assign up to 50 training users who can then access the document sharing section on their MyTraining page. Those 50 training users can only access the document sharing via their MyTraining page; only the Administrator has full access to the other areas. There is an additional cost to add training classes for these users. The Administrator can buy training and assign training to the number of users based on the training package they buy.

Unlimited Training Packages provide one year of unlimited access to our entire library*. Costs are based on the total number of employees that will have access during the year. Unlimited Packages are a great value and provide tremendous flexibility if you train frequently, train large numbers of employees or if you are assigning eight or more courses on average, per employee, per year. We are happy to help you determine which online training option is best for your situation.

* Unlimited Packages do not included Specialized Courses like the OSHA 10-Hour, Hazwoper 8-hour Refresher, NFPA70E, etc.

Our Learning Management System (LMS) is a web-based application for administering, documenting and tracking your classroom training, safety meetings, web-based training and more. There is no software to install and it’s easy to learn and use. 

You may use LMS to:

  • Track shared documents as "read" and "understood."
  • Assign and track safety meetings.
  • Assign and track classroom or contractor training.
  • Keep electronic records of safety or other certifications held by employees.
  • Create custom courses and exams and track them.
  • Purchase online courses from our library and assign and track them (as Tokens or Unlimited Packages).
