New Partnership with ClickSafety
ClickSafety joins BuildWitt to Help Solve Workforce Issues in the Dirt World
NASHVILLE, TN - ClickSafety joins BuildWitt to help solve the workforce issues the construction industry is facing. With a dwindling recruiting pool, companies can’t keep crews fully staffed to meet demands, and the problem is only growing with time.
The two parties will combine their resources to bring awareness to the issue and help Dirt World companies access solutions to meet their specific needs.
ClickSafety, founded in 1999, is a leader in online safety and compliance training. As the first to offer the OSHA 10-hour and 30-hour safety courses online, ClickSafety helps customers build a comprehensive safety culture in industries including Construction, Manufacturing, Environmental Health & Safety and many more.
“We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with BuildWitt. ClickSafety is always looking to deliver our comprehensive online safety training solutions to a new audience. BuildWitt is an ideal partner to add to our roster with their strong foundation in the construction industry and the Dirt World. Our shared goal is to build a safer work environment and I believe this partnership is the best way to accomplish that goal,” says Blake Ingram, General Manager of ClickSafety.
Since 2018, BuildWitt has been addressing common workforce problems by providing media and marketing services to companies in the Dirt World (i.e., infrastructure, earthmoving, utilities, site work, demolition, mining, materials, heavy equipment dealers, and supporting vendors). In 2022, BuildWitt launched a training platform with over 400 microlessons. The company’s next step is establishing partnerships with other organizations driven by the same mission.
“ClickSafety has been the pioneer and leader for online safety training for the past two decades. And safety training is one of the top requested items on the BuildWitt Training platform. That’s why we’re excited to offer the OSHA 10/30 certifications from ClickSafety, and eventually even more of their safety and environmental content,” says Dan Briscoe, President of BuildWitt.
BuildWitt has identified six primary causes for the workforce shortage: aging workforce; individuals choosing college instead of trades; record demand for infrastructure; fierce competition for workers from other industries; poor perception of blue-collar work; and different mindsets and desires among today’s younger generation.
The company will strategize with each new partnership to address one or more of the specific root causes of the workforce shortage.
“We don’t claim to have all the answers or solutions. What’s missing isn’t an effort or intent to solve the workforce problem—instead, it’s a cohesive effort,” says Aaron Witt, CEO of BuildWitt.
