Open Text Corporation, provider of Livelink, collaboration and knowledge management software for the enterprise, has announced Turner Construction is using Livelink as the foundation for the Turner Knowledge Network (TKN). A solution for the construction industry, TKN is designed to provide portal access to a blend of learning management and Livelink functionality. Turner uses Livelink to provide online access to documentation and information that covers all aspects of any construction project—from manuals and safety information to forms and best practices. This library helps project teams collectively achieve high levels of efficiency by enabling knowledge sharing across all business units and ensuring everyone, including owners, architects, engineers and subcontractors, is working from current content. Turner has developed relationships with organizations such as McGraw-Hill and the Association of General Contractors (AGC) in order to serve as a portal for training. Fulfilling industry training requirements, Turner has also worked with the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to create the first of its kind, online OSHA 30-hour training course. All resource materials for the online courses are managed in Livelink and accessible from any Web-browser. Through TKN, Turner is able to provide consistent, complete training to all staff and contractors across all of its operations in the United States.
