NAAA Marks Safety Milestone Featured
04 July 2017
More than 7,000 people in the wholesale auto auction industry have become safety certified in the 14 months since the National Auto Auction Association launched its free, online safety training program.NAAA's Auction Safety Certification and Lane Safety Training instructional series promote greater safety awareness and accident prevention through short educational videos. One significant aspect is its multi-tiered structure with courses aimed at both full- and part-time auction employees.NAAA created the "100% Safety Certified Award" to encourage participation and recognize auctions that have had their entire workforce successfully complete the program.In the NAAA Auction Safety Certification course, staff members view a series of 12 short videos and take a brief quiz at the end of each one. The entire course can be done in about an hour. Temporary agency drivers take the 20-minute NAAA Lane Safety Training course and test, after which a certificate is emailed directly to them and the auction that requested the instruction. Certifications must be renewed annually.
