Electrical Safety

Electrical Safety provides the information employees need to work safely around low voltage electricity. The course also satisfies the OSHA training requirements under 29 CFR Part 1910.331 for non-qualified employees. Electricity is all around us. It lights up our homes… powers much of the machinery and equipment that we use… and runs many of our tools. We are so used to it, most employees take it for granted. Yet electricity can also be dangerous. Employees need to know how electricity works, and what they should do to protect themselves from its hazards.

Topics covered in this program:
Include how electricity works, fuses and circuit breakers, grounding and GFIs, safe work practices, outlets, plugs and extension cords, working with electrical equipment, using ladders around electricity, electrical emergencies, and more.

Driving Safety: The Basics

Driving Safety: The Basics provides the information employees need to drive cars, vans and small trucks safely, both on and off the job.

These courses can be installed and run on any SCORM conform learning management system (LMS).

Driving Safety

1 million serious motor vehicle accidents annually in the US
Driving Safety provides the information employees need to drive cars, vans and small trucks safely. Most employees travel the roads every day… in cars, vans or trucks… many of them on company business. Each year, traffic accidents claim over 40,000 lives and cause more than a million serious injuries. In fact, motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death on the job.

40,000 people died last year in the US from motor vehicle accidents Driving Defensively provides the information employees need to drive cars, vans and small trucks safely, both on and off the job. When you drive defensively, you’re always looking for trouble. Not because you want to cause it, but so you can defend yourself against other drivers, and the trouble they can cause.

3,500 people die every year from distracted driving – 391,000 injured from distracted driving Distracted Driving provides the information employees need to drive cars, vans and small trucks safely. We’ve all seen them, drivers on the road drinking a cup of coffee, putting on make-up, eating a snack…and talking on their cell phones. More and more people every day, it seems, are doing something other than paying attention to traffic when they’re behind the wheel. It’s called “distracted driving.”

Topics covered in this program: Include the cost of distracted driving; multi-tasking, technology and distraction; eliminating distractions before you drive; cell phones; fighting distraction on the road and more.

Dealing With Hazardous Spills

Dealing with Hazardous Spills helps workers understand the hazards that can be associated with HAZMATs and the cleanup procedures that can mitigate them.

When a spill occurs, serious damage can be prevented if employees have been trained on how to respond to them safely and effectively.

Topics covered in this program:
Include information on HAZMAT basics and the Emergency Action Plan, the spill response team, the first steps in responding to a spill, characterizing a spill and cleaning it up, special hazards associated with a HAZMAT spill cleanup, decontamination and waste disposal, and more.

Most substance abusers have jobs. In fact, it is estimated that one out of every ten workers has a drug or alcohol problem. Their behavior “under the influence” can decrease productivity, create a hostile work environment and damage a company’s reputation. Worst of all it can significantly increase the chances of workplace accidents, injuries and fatalities.

Topics covered in this program:
Includes information on how substance abuse can affect a workplace; which substances are abused; laws you need to know about; creating a drug and alcohol free workplace; education and testing, recognizing on-the-job substance abuse; and more.

Crane Safety

90% of crane-related accidents are caused by human error
Crane Safety is designed to remind employees they are the key to preventing crane-related accidents. While there are many different types of cranes, they all have the ability to make many jobs much easier by lifting enormous weight. But they also share the potential for disaster when they are not operated safely. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the cumbersome and heavy loads that are lifted. A small miscalculation, or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. Once a load falls, not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. A coworker could be injured or killed, and expensive equipment or materials could be damaged or destroyed… even the crane itself. Areas covered in the program include physical and mental preparation, equipment inspection, hazard assessment, boom cranes, jib cranes, overhead cranes, general and operational safety devices, crane operations, hand signals, and more.

Conflict Resolution in the Office

Conflict Resolution in the Office discusses the techniques and strategies that can be used to limit the damage and disruption conflict can sometimes cause in the workplace. Conflict in the workplace is inevitable. Anytime two or more people come together, they will eventually disagree about something. While some conflict can be healthy, it is often an indication that there is something wrong. The good news about conflict is that it is usually based on caring. The more someone defends their point of view in an argument, the more they care. But if conflict is allowed to fester and grow without a resolution, it can lead to serious problems such as threats and even physical violence. This course shows employees that when difficult situations are dealt with in a calm and unemotional way, compromise and collaboration are possible… and a lot can be gained from resolving a conflict.

Topics covered in this program:
Include the consequences of conflict and how it can disrupt the workplace, how resolving workplace conflict is an integral part of everyone’s job, common causes of workplace conflict and how to recognize them, diffusing disagreements before they get out of hand, the damage that escalating conflict and violence can do to an organization, how collaboration can be a voluable tool in resolving conflicts, how to apply proven conflict resolution techniques and strategies, and more.
