OH&S SafetyPod: Can Safety Training be Both Engaging and Compliant?

SafetySkills Instructional Systems Design and Project Management Team Lead, Lauren Brandeberry, discusses the ever-evolving landscape of safety training and eLearning with OH&S Editor Sydny Shepard on this episode of the podcast.

The past decade has brought an explosion of innovations in instructional design, such as microlearning, adaptive learning and gamification. In this episode of OH&S SafetyPod, I was pleased to interview Lauren Brandeberry, Instructional Systems Design and Project Management Team Lead at SafetySkills about modern instructional design and strategies for working with requirements of regulatory bodies such as OSHA, DOT, and EPA while producing engaging, effective training content for workers.

Lauren was the perfect person to interview for this episode, as she has been designing world-class eLearning solutions for global safety, staff development and compliance training challenges for SafetySkills and their clients for the past 6 years. Lauren and I did a deep dive into the different kinds of eLearning, the most effective methods of training for age groups and aging computer systems as well as the most advanced eLearning techniques on the market today. This is not an episode you want to miss out on!
