Computer Workstation Safety
This is a four-part series all about computer workstation safety. The four videos that are part of this video course are all micro-learning, performance support videos that are individually less than five minutes long.
Safety Decision-Making: Overcoming Human Nature
Many people assume that workers will choose to work safely simply because they don't want to get hurt. Unfortunately, our decision-making process isn't that simple. This program, hosted by safety professional Tom Harvey, uses common examples, reenactments and a little humor to explain how humans are tempted to make unsafe choices by succumbing to the instant gratification of shortcuts, risk-taking and peer pressure. This program explains how our safety decision-making process works and provides tips and techniques we can use to overcome our human nature and make safe choices rather than unsafe ones. Topics include why working safely goes against human nature, factors that influence the decision-making process, how outcomes of our actions affect future decisions, the concept of "normalized deviation" and creating a positive safety culture by offering and accepting safety feedback.
Computer Workstation Safety: Using Neutral Positions
MARCOM's MicroLearning program on "Computer Workstation Safety: Using Neutral Positions" provides employees with specific facts about this topic. These targeted 2-4 minute video "info-nuggets" focus on a single skill or topic area that employees need to understand to work safely.
Safety Awareness for New Employees
MARCOM's video on Safety Awareness for New Employees addresses many of the most important safety issues confronting employees, so new hires can start working safely right away. This video is one of the most effective and efficient ways to get employees the training that they need, in a classroom or individually through their desktop or tablet computer.
Safety Housekeeping and Accident Prevention
MARCOM's program on "Safety Housekeeping and Accident Prevention" provides workers with the information they need to recognize on-the-job hazards and explains how they can prevent them. Employees need to understand how to maintain a neat and orderly work environment and develop other good safety habits that will help them to create a safer workplace for everyone. Workplace accidents cause nearly 5000 deaths and 3 million injuries every year, but many of these incidents could have been prevented. Good housekeeping and safety practices can significantly reduce accidents and injuries in any type of work environment. This program will provide workers with the information they need to recognize on-the-job hazards and explain how they can prevent them. Topics covered include developing a good safety attitude, maintaining a neat and orderly work environment, using tools and equipment, identifying and storing hazardous materials, hazardous materials cleanup and disposal, personal protective equipment, and more.
Computer Workstation Safety: Arranging Your Work Area
MARCOM's MicroLearning program on "Computer Workstation Safety: Arranging Your Work Area" provides employees with specific facts about this topic. These targeted 2-4 minute video "info-nuggets" focus on a single skill or topic area that employees need to understand to work safely.
MARCOM's video on "Safety Audits" provides employees with an understanding of the goals and procedures that are involved in a safety audit, shows them how they can help in the audit process and describes specific safe work practices. Workplace safety is too important to try and figure out on the fly or leave to chance. When employees' lives and health are on the line, a company can't just wait for trouble to occur before making improvements. That's why safety-conscious organizations have been taking a more proactive approach by conducting safety audits…systematic surveys of workplaces to identify hazards so they can be eliminated or controlled. Areas included in the program include performing a workplace analysis, systems of controls, evaluating work areas, performing a personal safety audit, dealing with accidents, and more. This video is one of the most effective and efficient ways to get employees the training that they need, in a classroom or individually through their desktop or tablet computer.
A Safe Workplace: OSHA and Right-to-Know Laws
HR professionals play a large role in developing standards, making sure safety and health laws are followed, and tracking workplace accidents. In this course, we'll cover right-to-know laws and employee awareness regulations. We'll also look at how OSHA standards are enforced.
Keeping Your Workplace Safe
In this course, we'll discuss a number of Small Business Owner FAQs with helpful answers from OSHA. The importance of employee safety and health is discussed and numerous strategies for help with compliance are also mentioned.
Take Time for Safety
In our busy lives, we are often faced with time-management choices. When given the chance, we must always choose safety over time savings, because rushing causes us to lose focus, skip steps, and make bad decisions. In fact, the time we spend staying safe is time well spent. In this program, workers learn the very real hazards associated with rushing and being in a hurry. Through various examples, viewers will learn to recognize the symptoms of becoming rushed, why "hurried working" is so dangerous and what steps they can take to stay safe. The program also makes the point that being in a hurry is not the real cause of incidents and injuries, but rather a symptom of poor planning, poor choices and poor time-management--all of which can be prevented by proper preparation and organization.
MARCOM's Office Safety program shows employees what hazards exist in office
environments, and how important it is to use good safety practices as they go
about their work. Office employees frequently have the feeling that since they
don't work out on a plant floor safety isn't important in their jobs. Yet
accidents and injuries in the office account for thousands of hours of lost
time, and millions of dollars in Workers' Compensation and medical costs. This
video also includes information on safety awareness, proper lifting, safety
housekeeping, slips, trips & falls, electrical safety, and more.
