Fun Lockout-Tagout Training Game (for Affected Employees)

We make lots of stuff to help you with safety training at work.

We’ve got a learning management system (LMS) to help you administer training. We make online health and safety training courses on many common safety training topics.

And hey, we even make free and fun safety training games for you. Like this one about lockout-tagout and the affected employee role.

It’s basically the same thing you’re familiar with from the TV show Wheel of Fortune, except it’s based on lockout-tagout and the affected employee role. Plus we’ve got no Vanna White for you–sorry.

Fun Forklift Training Game

A good forklift training program should have a lot of elements.

Obviously, the operating demonstration and evaluation is critical, but you can do more than that.

For example, a fun little word game like this one might be a good way to introduce some terms to new employees, or to test their knowledge after some instructor-training, or as a quick refresher six months down the road.

Whatever you choose to do with this–hey, maybe it would be fun during a safety meeting or a toolbox talk?–we hope you enjoy it.

Stay safe, friends!

Fun Scaffolds Training Game

Scaffolds are hazardous and workers get hurt on them–or worse, get hurt when falling from them.

Given that, it makes sense to train employees to work on, with, and near scaffolds safely. And it makes sense to train them in a variety of ways.

One thing you can do to add a little fun to the training is to let your employees play this scaffolds training game. You may even give it a shot yourself!

It’s basically the same thing as the games on TV’s Wheel of Fortune, except (1) there’s no Vanna White and (2) it’s about scaffolds.

Have a fun time with this!

7 Ways Online Safety Training Helps New Employees Work More Safely

Getting hired and starting a new gig is exciting. We’ve all been there. New opportunities open. New, exciting challenges present themselves.

But it can also be stressful, intimidating, and even a bit overwhelming. There’s a lot to learn in a hurry, and some new hires are starting at ground zero.

Fortunately, there’s a lot that managers, supervisors, bosses, and coworkers can do to help the new employee. Frankly, just saying “hi” and “welcome,” introducing yourself, and offering any help if needed are good places to start.

In addition, a comprehensive new employee onboarding program is a great start. This can include explaining the company mission statement, values, and culture; explaining general policies, like vacation time and sick days; getting the new employee together with his or her new manager; setting expectations with the employee and learning more about his or her own career goals; and more.

Part of that onboarding can begin the process of teaching the new worker his or her new job, including the tasks and responsibiities he or she will have to perform.

And part of that will be providing new employee safety onboarding to keep the new worker, and everyone else, safe on the job. In an earlier article, we looked at how a learning management system, or LMS, can help with that new employee safety onboarding process. In this article, we’ll look at how online safety training courses can help, too.
