This webinar will focus on different training and learning methods for workers at construction sites, industry business or any other field where high-risk activities or dangerous situations can occur. The focus will be on experiential safety awareness training methods with a sensory impact.
On average, we retain about 10% of a written text, 20% of what we record acoustically, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we see and hear in combination, and 90% of what we tell and really do.
Matthias Krop will demonstrate how Youngwoo simulates everyday risks and hazards in a safe training environment that actively involves workers.
“We will show results from our clients, how injury rates on complex construction sites have been reduced significantly by using practical safety training units. Sharing references from the field where safety training simulators for high-risk activities like confined space, electrical safety, working at height or lifting have been installed can be food for thought and open discussions.”
“This fresh approach can help other companies on the market, when facing challenges in effective safety training with e.g. high fluctuation of personnel, external temporary workers that need to be trained in a short time (outages), bridge language barriers and improve the safety awareness and safe work behaviour.”
