NSC’s “Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Environments” Interactive CD-ROM Course has been created specifically to involve employees in the process of understanding the proper use of personal protective equipment and to help facilities in fulfilling OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment Standards (29 CFR,1910. 132, 133, 134,135,136,137,138) training requirements. The course looks at why personal protective equipment is so important and reminds employees of what is available. “On-the-job” injuries affect all types of people, doing all types of work. Each year hundreds of thousands of workers are injured… at a cost to employers of billions of dollars annually. Studies show that the majority of workplace injuries could be avoided if employees used the proper personal protective equipment. Yet many people have little idea of what protective equipment should be used in their jobs, or how to use it properly. Areas covered in the course include a review of OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Standards, PPE for eye and face hazards, PPE for respiratory hazards, PPE for head hazards, PPE for foot hazards, PPE to guard against electrical hazards, PPE to guard against hand and finger hazards, 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.
