Safety should always be the number one priority at the workplace. Alarmingly, thousands of employees and contractors are killed each year. Accidents tend to be blamed as “wrong place, wrong time,” when the truth is these accidents are typically preventable and are often the same injuries and mishaps that happen time and time again.
This month, Mastery released a training course on the ten most common workplace injuries that continually occur, but can be prevented. Though we may not realize we are putting ourselves at risk for injury, the course, “Safety Awareness: Safety’s Top Ten,” provides realistic scenarios that many of us can relate to. Take the advice in this course to avoid injury at work, including:
- Commit to working safely
- Recognize risk factors
- Pay attention to what your body is telling you
- Wear proper clothing
- Avoid complacency
Each day when we arrive at work, we are sometimes geared to perform seemingly mindless tasks. These tasks, when not performed properly or without awareness, are what can jeopardize our health and well-being. Supply this training course for you employees to heighten awareness and promote knowledge of workplace risk factors.
Active shooter events are an ever-pressing threat. These incidents are complex, dynamic and emotionally charged; and a response team must be prepared. With this notion, that preparedness is essential, we are thrilled to now offer a comprehensive, realistic, and effective course for first responders at active shooter incidents.
The “Active Shooter Rapid Response”course is designed to supply guidance to those who would respond to a mass shooting incident and carry out swift and immediate deployment, and help prevent life threatening injuries. This training course helps learners recognize:
- Probable characteristics of an active shooter
- Basic strategy and tactics
- Roles of facility officials
- Help control the outcome of the event
- Typical lengths of an active shooter incidence
- Likely motives or actions of the perpetrator
In a recent article, “Addressing the Problem of the Active Shooter,” it states that “patrol officers are most likely responding alone or with a partner. When responding alone, 75 percent had to take action.” This statement (from Blair and Martaindale, “United States Active Shooter Events”) reiterates the importance of training for responding officers to active shooter events, and the possibility of having to put the training into action.
Active shooter events are often over in just a few minutes. Immediate action is required in order to gain control and lessen the devastation of the situation. Use Mastery Technologies as the first step in supplying vital training for active shooter rapid response conditions. This course is available on Mastery.com and is available on our VOD, playable on all smart phones, tablets and desktop computers.
Companies that ship a multitude of goods on a daily basis must pay special attention to ensure proper standards are adhered to when completing shipping papers. With the variety of hazards present in materials shipped, the lack of following procedures can cause great harm to workers and innocent bystanders. Hazardous materials (HazMat) are a major threat when not labeled properly.
Both shippers and carriers need to comply with federal regulations when completing shipping papers. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) creates standards all parties should comply with.
Many shipping companies run into issues where shipments are turned down at pick-up because the shipper is unable to demonstrate proof of training. Here at Mastery, we pride ourselves on becoming a hub for providing training on U.S. DOT HazMat shipping papers procedures. Our new content partner, Video & Internet Stuff, produced our newest training course, “DOT: HAZMAT; Preparing Shipping Papers.” When learners complete the course, evidence of subject mastery includes abilities to:
- Define shipping paper requirements and describe required shipping paper entries for hazardous materials
- Use the hazardous material table to properly fill in shipping papers
- Identify emergency response information requirements for hazardous materials
