We'll be the first to admit that some of the content in the Online Training module can be a little dry.  After a number of hours of listening to a narrator explain the merits of fit testing respirators and recording hazard assessments, employees can tend to tune-out the messages.  We're always adding various different "versions" of all our lessons, so as an administrator, we highly recommend you preview all the available video links for each topic, and choose the ones that are appropriate for the hazards at your workplace, but also entertaining enough that your employees will enjoy taking the training.

The Workers' Compensation Board of Nova Scotia created arguably the most entertaining safety awareness videos we have ever seen.  They're short, and primarily geared at young workers, but the combination of creative drawing of a stickman, with a brilliant voice talent, makes them instant classics.

If you receive feedback from your employees that some of the SafetySync training can be dull or mundane, sprinkle in a few of these versions.  Here are the courses and lessons in which the Rod Stickman versions are available:
  • Common Worksite Injuries
    • Heavy Lifting and Back Injuries
  • Fall Prevention
    • Introduction to Slips, Trips and Falls
    • Elevated Falls - Working at Heights
  • Occupational Health and Safety
    • Rights and Responsibilities
    • Right to Refuse Unsafe Work
  • Return to Work
    • The Return to Work Program
We are certain that if you choose the "WorkSafeForLife" versions of these lessons in the OHSMS, you'll see your course feedback scores in SafetySync for these safety topics increase dramatically. And you'll hear some hearty laughs too.
