Safety isn’t taken lightly by business owners, but now it’s a game. With the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) new interactive training game, business owners can explore common safety hazards in manufacturing and construction industries, and learn about ways to reduce them.
The training tool lets users play as the business owner or the employee as they explore three different scenarios: “OSHA Visual Inspection Training,” “Manufacturing Facility,” and “Construction.” The game leads players through the important steps in the hazard identification process including: information collection, observing the workplace, investigating incidents, employee participation and making hazards identification a priority.
Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano applauds OSHA for developing such an informational tool and urges business owners to play and learn. The game can be found here. OSHA also provides a game trailer to preview the tool, which can be found here. Any means to prevent and educate employers and employees about workplace accidents is crucial to ensuring workplace safety.
