MARCOM's Safety Orientation in Construction Environments Interactive CD-ROM Course addresses two of the most prominent safety issues confronting employers today, that of developing a good safety attitude in their employees...as well as providing introductory safety training. Thinking about safety should be as natural as thinking about other aspects of a job. Accidents cause millions of people to suffer painful injuries every year, and cost business almost $90 billion per year in medical bills, lost wages and lost production time. So, employees need to think about the possibility of accidents before they happen. Areas covered in the course include developing safety awareness, basics of accident prevention, hazard evaluation, safety housekeeping, tool use and maintenance, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up Pre and Post tests... establish log-in procedures... even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports... and has a database import/export feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company's personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
