NSC’s “Winter Safety” Interactive CD-ROM Course shows employees how to plan ahead, identify potential hazards and avoid dangerous situations that occur during the winter holiday season. Over the years employers have discovered that their employees miss more time from work as a result of “off-the-job” accidents than due to injuries experienced on the job. Many of these accidents occur during the winter, as employees do things that they are not familiar with or haven’t done “since last year”. Fortunately, most of these accidents can be prevented. Areas covered in the course include Christmas trees (selecting, transporting and setting up), using “string lights”, safe use of extension cords and outlets, fires, fireplaces and chimneys, using candles, fire extinguishers and fire escapes, dressing for cold weather, working in the cold, walking and driving in ice and snow, 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.
