High Reliability Training

High Reliability Training was formed because of a lack of quality online and video based curriculum in the areas of Human & Organizational Performance (HOP) and High Reliability Operations (HRO). HOPE Consulting LLC, an industry leader in HOP and HRO onsite consulting, partnered with Safety Instruct, an industry leader in safety based video production and software development.

The joint offering is a company with over sixty years of combined experience in the areas of HOP, HRO, safety, consulting, production and software based development. The creation of this “bridge” between technology, video and real world situations has given High Reliability Training the experience it needs to create the most comprehensive and effective online training curriculum currently available.
