Every workplace has chemicals and every worker has the right to know about the hazards of working with the chemicals they are exposed to. WHMIS/GHS is an essential element of a safe workplace. Unfortunately, it is also incredibly boring to learn, and retention of WHMIS/GHS training is consistently very poor.
Businesses such as Google, Microsoft, Cisco, IBM, Canon, FedEx, Wells Fargo and others including the military are now using games to train their personnel and the results are consistently favorable. Staff participating in training games are better trained, more satisfied with the training they have received and more focused on their jobs.
As an industry leader, Allman Safety recognized that this powerful training tool has a direct application to health and safety and is pleased to offer the first WHMIS/GHS Training Game.
Compared to browsing through pamphlets or passively listening to WHMIS/GHS PowerPoint presentations, the Allman Safety Training Game is interactive and engaging. Players are challenged to learn and demonstrate their understanding of the WHMIS/GHS materials presented in order to successfully master the game. The Allman Safety game keeps participants engaged in their learning and most importantly provides verifiable evidence they have understood the material.
The Allman Safety WHIMIS/GHS Training Game is a web-based virtual quest where players are provided the WHMIS/GHS rules and materials that they then must use to address workplace scenarios and move through the game. While playing the game, they receive immediate feedback on their ability to apply the knowledge they have gained.
Workers can play at their own pace; anywhere they have access to a computer and the internet.
Employers can be confident that their staff who have successfully played the Allman Safety WHMIS/GHS Training Game have demonstrated knowledge of the basics of WHMIS/GHS. Successful players can then apply the knowledge they have gained in the game to teach themselves about the hazards at their workplace and the appropriate controls for the specific products that they use. Most importantly, they will know how to protect themselves from their workplace hazards.
The Allman Safety WHMIS/GHS Training Game is complete, efficient, and effective. It is also fun!
