In the form of an "on-line" resource, this toolkit has several benefits compared to a hardbound copy toolkit.
- This toolkit will be availble anywhere there is a computer, PDA, or mobile phone that acess to the internet. This toolkit's use will not be dependent on being 'brought along' to a job.
- Many references made in this toolkit are "hotlinked" to their external source. The material found in this toolkit has been condensed for effeciency and the hotlinks are provided for when details from the original source are needed. Some of these hotlinked references will open in the browser that this toolkit appears in and some will open in a second browser window. This is because some sources are expected to be viewed as a main document and some sources are expected to be quick reference to so they do not take the toolkit browser away from its present URL.
- Updates may be more readily made as more and more materials come online.
- It has the ability to be seen and used by more than one person at a time. That is, if a section or two needed to be forwarded to a collaborator it is easily done by emailing a link to the desired section. This could easily facilitate the shared use of HPT conepts, models, and jargon between collaborators who may have slightly different backgrounds or experiences.
- The internal navigation of the toolkit itself is made speedy and easy by the use of internal links. In this way it becomes itself a sort of EPSS.
