Safety training solutions provider KBC Health & Safety introduced its microlearning training programme for employees in July this year.

“We developed the microlearning training to focus on high-risk work areas hazards and controls to avoid incidents from occurring,” explains KBC Health & Safety innovation manager Natalie Pitout.

Microlearning is a key component of the holistic training solution that the company offers to employees and clients.

Pitout explains that microlearning essentially comprises bite-sized nuggets of outcome-specific information that employees can study at their convenience and learn easily.

The information is typically designed and delivered in rich media formats to enhance timeous training for employees, and is available on multiple devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops.

KBC’s microlearning can be optimised using two options, she adds.

The first option enables employees to work remotely and log onto the online learning platform using a smart device and Internet connectivity, while the second option is to attach quick response (QR) codes to a structure such as a work-at-height scaffold. Scanning the QR code allows employees access to the microlearning clip, which details the health and safety best practice for the task at hand.

In addition, microlearning modules have been developed using various methodologies. The modules of the programme are interactive to ensure engagement, with videos and images embedded to cater for all learning styles.

The modules can also be customised based on client requirements.

Every module covers one topic; the duration of an online module spans about 15 to 20 minutes and the microlearning flash videos about two minutes.

The company will expand on the modules currently on offer, and customise them based on client needs, Pitout concludes.
