    SAN MATEO, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- ClickSafety, a leader in
 complete risk-management over the Internet, today announced that
 Webcor Builders, Inc. has launched an initiative to deploy ClickSafety's
 online risk-management service company wide.
     Following a successful three-month trial with ClickSafety, Webcor seeks to
 continue to improve safety and reduce incident rates throughout their
 organization.  Implementing ClickSafety adds additional safety training and
 compliments and reinforces one of their core business values of "providing a
 safe and hazard-free workplace which is an absolute priority."  Webcor is
 advancing this value through the Internet and builds on their initiative to
 maintain a competitive edge through innovative use of technology.  "An
 investment in safety makes great business sense," says Andy Ball, Webcor
 President.  "By reducing the number of incidents on Webcor jobs we see
 tremendous human and business benefits throughout our organization."  Eric
 Horn, Webcor Vice President adds,  "ClickSafety combined an innovative safety
 management system with a proven record of injury reduction to help us build on
 the active safety culture we have already established here at Webcor."
     As part of the solution, Webcor will utilize ClickSafety Jobsite(TM), a
 unique safety compliance management tool.  "One major challenge for any
 general contractor, is managing the safety compliance of sub-contractors on
 our jobsites," says Eric Horn.  "The ClickSafety Jobsite(TM) feature allows us
 to set safety standards project-wide and monitor our sub's compliance
 real-time.  We expect this oversight capability to better enable us to keep
 every worker on the job safe."
     ClickSafety sees Webcor's endorsement as a tremendous step towards
 industry adoption of their standard in the San Francisco Bay Area.  "Adding an
 opinion-leading firm like Webcor to our list of satisfied customers really
 adds momentum to our efforts in California," says Roger Cone, ClickSafety CEO.
 "Being established as the standard on Webcor jobsites will expose the
 ClickSafety solution to hundreds of additional contractors.  Success on these
 jobs will bring ClickSafety to tens of thousands of new workers and help us
 redefine construction safety training across the industry."
