OSHA Using Gaming as a New Teaching Tool

There is no denying that we live in a much faster world than our parents ever did. Attention spams are declining as more and more people grow up in a media saturated world. High speed action moves dominate theaters and television and video games are a staple for most kids and young adults.

Rather than try to fight OSHA has simply adapted to meet the challenge by its own video game. Unlike most video games which are designed only for entertainment, OSHA’s new “Hazard Identification Training Tool” is designed to educate.

From the OSHA Hazard Identification Training Tool web page:

This tool is intended to:

(1) Teach small business owners and their workers the process for finding hazards in their workplace,
(2) Raise awareness on the types of information and resources about workplace hazards available on OSHA’s website.

Go on! Take a break and play the game! Have fun and learn to identify hazards at the same time.
