Enhance Workplace Safety with ClickSafety's New OSHA 10-Hour Construction Course
In the changing world of workplace safety training, ensuring the well-being of employees is always the most important. This is especially true in the construction industry, where risks are common, and knowledge can be a lifesaver.
This year, ClickSafety set out to redefine the safety training experience with our new OSHA 10-Hour Construction course. This course is an important step forward towards improving safety outcomes for both companies and employees.
For all the details, watch our Next Generation OSHA 10-Hour Construction webinar titled “Learner First is Safety First” delivered by Blake Ingram, General Manager, Rolando Cedillo, Director of Compliance and Sean Hagerty, Director of Product Management.
Read on for the highlights on how our new course format is transforming our safety training, making it more effective, engaging, and accessible while meeting the diverse needs of today's workforce.
Evolving Safety Training
Safety training has come a long way, and with improved knowledge and technology there have been many important improvements over time. ClickSafety's new OSHA 10-Hour Construction course represents the next step in this evolution. The course is designed to enhance the training process, making it more modern and effective, without ignoring the principles that have made OSHA 10 training a cornerstone of workplace safety.
One of the core objectives in redesigning the OSHA 10 course is to provide an improved training experience for our users. We know safety training can be seen as dry and disengaging. The new course strives to change that perception by introducing interactivity and relevance. It focuses on creating a more engaging learning environment, ensuring that learners not only pass the course, but internalize the safety principles and are able to apply them effectively in their work.
To ensure the highest quality of safety training, we collaborated with experts in both safety and instructional design. This allowed for the creation of a more informative and engaging training experience. By bringing in the insights and expertise of professionals who understand the nuances of the construction industry, ClickSafety can offer training that truly makes a difference.
Here are some key features of the new course that make it our best yet:
Real-Life Scenarios and Inclusion
One of the most notable features of the new course format is the incorporation of real-life scenarios.
By using real scenarios in the training, learners can relate the content to their own experiences, making it more practical and applicable to their work. This better prepares them for situations they may encounter on the job, promoting better decision-making and safer work practices.
Equally as important is the emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the training material reflecting the diverse nature of today's workforce. To us, inclusion means creating content that resonates with all learners, regardless of their background, ensuring that everyone benefits from the training.
Accessibility and Self-Paced Learning
The course’s flexibility allows learners to access the course from various devices and complete it at their own pace—catering to the constraints of today's workforce. With the ability to learn on the go, learners can fit the training into their busy schedules, ensuring that safety education is accessible to everyone.
Recognizing the trend toward mobile learning is a critical aspect of ClickSafety's new course. Many learners prefer to take their courses on phones and tablets, and we believe modern safety training should reflect that. By providing a mobile-responsive experience, we’re ensuring that learners can access the material whenever and wherever they choose.
The course's structure is adaptive, accommodating a variety of learning styles and paces. It offers a range of interactive activities, including case studies, flashcards, and practice opportunities to engage learners. This adaptability also allows learners to progress at their own speed and in a way that suits their individual learning preferences.
Most importantly, this course also provides language flexibility. Learners can choose between English and Spanish for the course content, ensuring that everyone can access the material in the language they are most comfortable learning in.
Feedback and Remediation
An innovative feature of the new course is the ability to provide continuous feedback to learners as they progress. This allows them to understand their strengths and weaknesses and gives them the opportunity to revisit topics where they may need more time to understand.
Learner First is Safety First
By embracing the evolution of safety training and delivering a course that meets the diverse needs of today's workforce, we hope to lead the way towards a safer, more informed, and more productive workplace—which is why we have plans to update our library of over 500+ courses to this format in the future!
