Game-based training tool aimed at hazard identification
Washington – OSHA has unveiled an online game intended to help workers and employers identify hazards in the manufacturing and construction industries.
Released June 10, the interactive training tool will help teach users about hazard abatement and controls, as well as hazard identification, according to OSHA.
Users play the game from the perspective of a small business owner or an employee, identifying and addressing hazards in the simulated world.
“This new tool not only educates employers about how to take control of their workplaces and protect workers, it also demonstrates that following well-established safety practices is also good for the bottom line,” OSHA administrator David Michaels said in a press release announcing the game.
The game was developed in conjunction with the OSHA Training Institute.
