NSC’s “Welding Safety” Interactive CD-ROM Course reminds employees that there are indeed a number of hazards associated with welding, and provides the information they need to work safely when involved with welding operations. People have been welding in one form or another for over 2,000 years. But like many industrial processes, welding can be very dangerous. Flying sparks, toxic fumes. electric shock and high temperatures are just some of the things that can make welding a dangerous proposition. Areas covered in the course include getting “authorization” for welding operations, sparking and the risk of fire, guards and protective barriers, hazardous fumes and ventilation, the use of respirators, eye protection (welding helmets, filters, glasses and goggles), using other personal protective equipment, inspecting welding equipment, proper welding safety procedures, 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.
