MARCOM's interactive course on Winter Safety shows employees how to plan ahead, identify potential hazards and avoid dangerous situations that occur during the winter holiday season. Over the years employers have discovered that their employees miss more time from work as a result of off-the-job accidents than due to injuries experienced on the job. Many of these accidents occur during the winter, as employees do things that they are not familiar with or haven't done since last year. Fortunately, most of these accidents can be prevented. Areas covered in the course include Christmas trees (selecting, transporting and setting up), using string lights, safe use of extension cords and outlets, fires, fireplaces and chimneys, using candles, fire extinguishers and fire escapes, dressing for cold weather, working in the cold, walking and driving in ice and snow, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood and retained. MARCOM's online courses come with a comprehensive and easy-to-use learning management system (LMS). With this system you can establish your own training environment by setting registration requirements and defining log-ins, create curricula for various positions and departments, set up tests and more. The system also tracks all employee activity and performance, including, which courses employees have taken, when the courses were taken, test scores, and other important data. This information can be accessed online as well as printed in hardcopy form.
