Digital Safety Training Briefings
The aim of a safety briefing is for people to understand their role during an emergency so that they will know what to do and instinctively do it. If people have to understand what to do during a dynamic situation, why use static tools like a Word document or PowerPoint during the training? Let’s face it – people often have a hard time reading a static document and then applying what they learned in real life. Why not use a dynamic, visual tool that will show people in real-time what they are supposed to do?
The airplane safety videos do a good job of showing a dynamic safety briefing, and ePlan-GIS can do the same thing for the petroleum industry, except on a much larger scale and reducing the degree of complexity. Imagine being able to conduct a safety briefing using a dynamic tool like ePlan-GIS to walk a group of trainees through a complex event with a simple-to-understand and visual tool where they instantly understand what they are supposed to do. Imagine being able to show the trainees what they needed to do – from any perspective, fully controllable in real-time. All of this is possible with a superb constructive simulation tool like ePlan-GIS. Imagine being able to re-run the scenario quickly and easily, showing different possibilities and contingencies. ePlan-GIS provides After Action Review (AAR) for re-running the exercise.
Why not extend the capabilities of the safety briefing? You could create your own safety videos that can be placed on your web site that would be playable by anyone. Workers could use these briefing videos to improve their safety knowledge before being assigned to a new area. They would have a much greater understanding than was ever possible before.
