DuPont Sustainable Solutions has launched a new safety orientation training programme entitled Safety Orientation: A New Way of Thinking, over topics that include personal protective equipment (PPE), bloodborne pathogens (BBPs), fire safety, electrical safety, and fall risks.

The programme walks viewers through the ins and outs of workplace safety. It describes the different kinds of PPE, including helmets, gloves, respirators and foot guards and explains the role of each. The training points also cover chemical safety basics like Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and how to store and handle flammable liquids.

The programme outlines the R.A.C.E. acronym for fire safety and P.A.S.S. method for fire extinguishers and presents safe lifting tips to help prevent back injuries. Safety Orientation: A New Way of Thinking identifies the three common forms of bloodborne pathogens and offers ways to reduce exposure. Finally, the programme lists the seven steps of lockout/tagout and gives standard safety guidance to help prevent slips, trips and falls.

This training programme is designed for new hires or to be used as refresher training for veteran employees. It is available as a DVD, streaming video and coming soon as an interactive, customizable online training course.

The DuPont™ eLearning Suite includes the Learning Management System, Interactive Courseware, an Assessment Builder and the Authoring Tool. The suite combines customizable, engaging content and scalable applications to enable organizations of all sizes and in all industries to standardize learning and development across multiple locations and job titles.
