Mastery releases new online ladder safety course to promote safe work practices and help employees prevent accidents and injuries when working on ladders. Every year 165,000 people are injured and 300 people are killed from improper ladder use; safety training can help prevent these tragedies.
Novi, MI (PRWEB) February 17, 2014
Every year 300 people are killed and 165,000 are injured while using ladders. Though the use of ladders seem like a mindless job skill, once complacency shows up at work, so does the risk of injury, or worse, death. There is much more to working with ladders than climbing one, and Mastery Technologies supplies the training to prove that. The newly released course Ladder Safety, originally produced by Aurora Pictures, addresses key safety steps to prevent accidents from taking place on the job.
With statistics demonstrating the importance of ladder safety, there are vital safety considerations and techniques workers must be familiar with to stay safe. Most people are injured and killed because of improper ladder use, mainly from using a ladder that is too short or one that cannot support the workload. Masterys Ladder Safety helps improve safe work practices by covering topics such as:
Setting up ladders
Using extension ladders
Using step ladders
Working on ladders
Ladders add risk to any job being performed because of the height. Even falls from a seemingly short distance can lead to terrible injuries. Everyone wants to go home safely at the end of the day and in order to do so proper training and procedures must be enforced.
Not only is Ladder Safety, a newly released course, it is available in Masterys Advantage and Video On Demand (VOD) platforms. In the Advantage course, broadcast-quality production values are used along with frequent interactions, practice activities, and quizzes with reviews to ensure workers master 100% of the courses material. Masterys VOD courses contain the entire instructional presentation of a training course. All of Masterys VOD courses include a topical index, displayed on the side of the video when not in full-screen mode. Video On Demand titles play on all devices, including desktops, smart phones and tablets.
Both formats of this course are available at the affordable price of $19.95 per learner. Volume pricing is available for employer purchases. For more inquiries on this course or other Mastery course platforms, visit Mastery.com.
