Routine tasks and prolonged working hours can decrease the attention of your employees towards potential hazards. Therefore, the training on safety measures should be reinforced regularly, so that they can be cautious. For such type of reinforcement of training, eLearning or mobile learning would be ideal.
One of our customers, a leading medical equipment manufacturer identified a need for familiarizing their employees with safety measures to be followed at their workplace. They implemented classroom training and wanted to reinforce the training regularly.
To meet this need, they recognized that the best solution would be to provide online training to their employees world wide. To take this one step further and provide a better solution, we recommended mLearning as it was accessible, adaptable and available. The target group to this training were medicos who are new to the industry.
According to M-learning strategy, content in M-learning modules will present instructive information using animations that contain line diagrams and a minimal amount of text. Safety measures that are ‘ought to know’ are to be clearly depicted through series of line graphics on the mobile.
Measures are categorized into 4 different levels of safety, along with the associated diseases when not followed.
However, these levels must be followed by everyone who work with hazardous materials in the workplace.
We designed the course in the following way:
Level 1: Talks about basic precautions when interacting with someone who has a certain illness
Level 2: Talks about precautions with a Mild case of a disease
Level 3: Talks about the safety measures for being safe from severe or fatal diseases
Level 4: Talks about the safety measures to be followed for preventing severe illness or death
This is a sample knowledge transfer given to the learners through this training. Likewise, we can deliver training, through bit-sized learning modules on various topics, to the users who are globally scattered, giving them a chance of accessing the information, irrespective of their location and time. Please do share your thoughts!
