I try not blog too in depth about my job, but I am really excited about this. I keep track of all the safety training we do for our employees, along with a bunch of other stuff. I enter all of the training into Excel, which isn't exactly the greatest application for this type of record keeping. When I first started my job, I asked why we didn't have an actual program to keep track of it all and it came down to money. Excel was working just fine, so why change anything.

In the last two years, because of two unfortunate incidents, we have had to really increased our safety training. Excel has gotten to the point, where it doesn't work so well anymore, because of the volume of information I am entering. My boss came to me last week and told me about some more information that I was going to have to keep track off. I probably had a look of got to be kidding me, on face. To my surprise he said he was going to inquire about getting us a tracking program. I figured it probably wouldn't happen though, so I wasn't going to get my hopes up.

Well, I came to work yesterday and they are going to go ahead and get it. I have been told it will be able to keep tracking of everything. I really hope soo! They aren't sure when it is going to be up and running, but I am definitely looking forward to it!

Yeah! That's always nice when you get a new tool that makes your job easier.

Very cool. It's nice to see a company change something that actually helps their employees.
