We’ve got something that’s both old and new for you today.
It’s old in that this is another “freemium” safety training elearning course from your friends at the Convergence Training blog. That’s right, it’s free! You can watch it for free from here or download it and put it into your LMS for ZERO dollars and ZERO cents. That LMS does have to be SCORM-compliant, course.
However, it’s new because we’ve done something a little different this time. It’s not a standard training course, but instead it gives you and your workers a chance to investigate a real-life safety incident that led to a workplace fatality. This is something that one person can work through at a computer alone. But it’s also something you can work through with a group of workers in a safety meeting or in a series of safety meetings. We think it would create a lot of discussion and really get your workers engaged and involved.
We hope that this “Incident Investigation” module will lead to helpful discussions and maybe even help you improve your own safety program-if that’s needed. And if you’re interested in incident investigations, please read our extensive article explaining how to perform an incident investigation.
Convergence Training is a training solutions provider. We provide health and safety e-learning courses, make several learning management systems (LMSs), and create custom training solutions too. Contact us to ask some questions, view full-length course previews, or schedule a demo.

View It Alone or In Groups Settings
You can view this module on your own, or have one worker view it alone, and that will work fine.
But we also encourage you to view it with a group of people during your safety meetings or in a “toolbox talk” setting. Use the module as a conversation starter; we’ve built in numerous discussion prompts along the way.
The Technical Information: What This Free Course Is and How to Play It
You can watch this course anytime you want just by coming to this article and watching it from here. So if you like it, feel free to bookmark it and come back later, or to send a link to this course to coworkers and peers via email.
On the other hand, you can also download a free copy for yourself and then put it into your SCORM-compliant LMS.
NOTE: Please read that last paragraph closely. The download you’ll get is a zipped folder in a format called SCORM. Once you’ve downloaded it, you can’t open the folder and play it without first importing the zipped folder into a learning management system (LMS). If you don’t know if you have a SCORM-compliant LMS, check with the folks in training.
