Four New Courses for a Safer New Year!

Our two new risk management courses focus on the important of incident investigations to uncover the root causes of workplace incidents, correct them, and reduce the risk of similar injuries in the future, and safety inspections, to reduce the number of accidents that happen in the workplace. 

In addition, our new distracted driving course focuses on one of the top reasons for auto liability claims, Distracted Driving, and our new "Lockout Tagout for Affected Employees" course replaces our older "Lock Out/Tag Out" course with updated content and 3d animation demonstrations.'

These courses are now immediately available for review and assigning to employees in Absorb LMS. 



Safety Management: Safety Inspections and Observations

(Full Course)

Accidents are caused by unsafe workplace conditions or unsafe behaviors. Inspections and observations allow you to be proactive by evaluating how safe your workplace is instead of waiting until someone gets hurt.

This course will provide an overview and general guidelines for performing safety inspections and observations.

Safety Management: Incident Investigation 

(Full Course)

As long as people work, there will be safety-related incidents and near misses. But those incidents can be used to make the workplace safer if they are investigated, analyzed, and corrected to prevent their recurrence.

This course discusses reasons for incident investigations, the phases of an incident investigation, team leader responsibilities, and who comprises the investigation team.

It then provides information on best practices for interviewing witnesses, determining the root cause of an incident, and corrective and follow-up actions.


Lockout Tagout for Affected Employees

Lockout/tagout can be defined as the placement of a lock or tag on an energy isolating device, in accordance with an established procedure, ensuring that the energy isolating device and the equipment being controlled cannot be re-energized until the locking device is removed.

While an authorized person usually performs the lockout, an "affected employee" is an employee that is affected by the lockout.

This course will focus on the general awareness needed for these "affected employees." This course replaces our prior Lock Out/Tag Out course. 

Dangers of Distracted Driving

(Full Course)

This course highlights the dangers of driving while distracted. Regardless of the type of distraction, the consequences are the same.

Distracted driving has been shown to significantly increase crash risk. Common distracted driving crashes include: rear-end, sideswipe, and run-off-road crashes.

When you are not fully focused on the driving task, you are more likely to miss warning signs that you may hit another car or run off the road. 

Learning Objectives:

• Define distracted driving

• Identify three types of distracted driving

• Describe why distracted driving is risky

• Identify strategies to reduce distracted driving.
