EDUCATION & TRAINING

Our education and training services are designed to help Environmental Health and Safety departments ensure they are doing all they can to reduce or eliminate employee risk while working with various types of equipment. Our talented team of machine operators, educators, writers, and illustrators can help you implement a top notch training program for your facility.

Here are some of the steps we go through while completing a typical project:

Define Documentation Scope: What instructional content is desired? What is the budget and time frame? How detailed should Facility signage be?
Define Instruction Scope: Is the goal to have standardized classes, or informal sessions to work on specific skills or projects?
Customize Documentation for Specific Needs: Work with your Risk Management team and Shop Manager to define shop policies and safety protocol. The content is designed to be clear and easy to read, with graphics that add clarity.
Documentation Samples: Recommend a system for providing consistent instruction: instructors use an Instructor Guide, students receive a Student Handout, Tests verify student attendance and understanding of the material, and Signage has consistent color scheme and graphics. All of these can be customized to fit your exact needs.
Instructor Guide: A 5 to 10 page course outline that guides the instructor through the class, so that all class sessions, even if taught by different instructors, cover the same material. There is some flexibility for the instructor to tailor the class to more sophisticated students.
Student Handout: A 5 to 10 page detailed handout, written for a student to use to take notes in class or as a reference at a later date. It typically includes text, images and detailed drawings of the tools and controls.
Test: A combination of a written test for the student, and a checklist of skills the instructor should observe the student perform.
Signage: Charts, posters and machine-specific Quick Start Guides, which all remind students of basic safe machine operation and Facility policies.
