Companies can now add a new dimension to their health and safety training which will save them money, reduce their carbon footprint and please their workforce, says health, safety and environment training consultancy, Praxis42.
Already known within the H&S industry for an innovative approach to health and safety training, Praxis has launched a range of mobile learning (mLearning) solutions to meet the training needs of workforces that are increasingly mobile and disparate.
Mike Stevens, Praxis42’s Head of Training said:
“Companies today face increasing challenges, not just commercially, but changing workforce patterns, globalisation, developing technologies, environment issues and increasing health and safety compliance. That’s why we have developed a range of courses, which harness mobile technology and address the health & safety hazards with real solutions.”
The training is similar to the eLearning concept being used by many organisations but the content is delivered to a mobile device such a mobile phone (3G enabled), pocket PC, or a PDA.
“Although the concept of mLearning is really exciting, the actual learning is simply an additional way to support learning across the workforce where learners are widely dispersed, when just in time training is essential, or to provide refresher training such as when there is a regulatory change.”
The mLearning is accessed on a mobile device through either a memory card, an internet connection or downloaded to the mobile device to be used wherever or whenever the trainee wants to undertake the training.
“Users like mLearning as a rapid way of learning while on the move, in preparation for meetings, during travel and so on. As knowledge and use of mobile devices is now widespread it makes sense for any company to provide training in this well-known and used medium.”
In addition, mLearning can often work out more cost effective than other blended learning approaches, as well as ensuring that companies reduce travel costs and their associated carbon footprint.
Praxis42’s mLearning can be deployed across all industries and all sectors where employees are able to access or share a mobile device. This solution offers the ability for anyone to refresh themselves of important information as well as providing their initial health and safety training.
Praxis42 courses now available as mLearning solutions include Fire Safety, Office Safety, Safe Use of Mobile Devises, Stress Awareness for Managers and Stress Awareness for Employees.
