Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Safety begins with identifying hazards and then working to eliminate, avoid, reduce, or control them. A hazard is any situation or condition with the potential to harm life, health, property, or the environment. Hazards exist in all walks of life: at your home, on streets and highways, and in every workplace. Hazards can be placed into at least three main groups: physical hazards related to working around dangerous moving machine parts, mobile equipment and energy sources, work environment hazards associated with noise, air quality, toxic materials, or other job-related conditions, and performance and behavioral hazards resulting from a lack of hazard awareness, inexperience, carelessness, and/or insufficient training.

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
