People might think that employees who work in an office don’t have to worry about being injured on the job. But while an office might be less risky than other work environments, it also presents a unique set of hazards that could potentially cause serious physical injuries. For this reason, it is important that all office employees learn about the various hazards that their work environment can present, how they can protect themselves from them and how to work well together.
The courses focus on creating a work environment that is physically, mentally and emotionally safe for employees, as well as keeping everyone up-to-date regarding the company’s human resource compliance requirements.
The courses are divided into a number of logical sections, each with its own quiz, so information is easily understood. The interactive formats allow trainers to collect employee performance information which can be organized through a powerful relational database and provides recordkeeping and tracking report capabilities.
The DVD programs contain a Presenter’s Guide, Employee Quizzes, Scheduling and Attendance Forms, and Training Certificates.
Languages: Programs are available in English and Spanish.
Formats: Web-based E-learning / DVD / Micro Learning (3-5 minute courses) / Adaptive-Learning
