The specific advantages of using video presentations as opposed to traditional paper-based methods for RAMS and health and safety training.
We all learn differently but it is fair to say that in today’s age of smartphones most people have become visual learners to a much higher degree than before. However, when issuing information to workers paper methods are still the most popular.
The problem will always exist that employers have to evidence that training has been conducted but the understanding of that training will always be harder to prove than the lack of understanding which is easily proved when an incident occurs.
Video and visual learning come together in Zebsoft making it easy for workers to access visuals and video to bring about engagement and learning:
Videos can capture and hold attention more effectively than paper. Visual and auditory stimulation can help in better retention of information and understanding of complex topics.
Video can showcase real-life scenarios, demonstrations, and animations, making it easier to explain and understand risks, safety protocols, and procedures.
Every viewer gets the same experience with a video, ensuring that the message remains consistent for everyone. In contrast, paper-based methods can be open to interpretation.
Videos can convey information faster than reading, and viewers can rewind or pause as needed, allowing them to process information at their own pace.
Modern video platforms allow for interactive elements, such as quizzes, clickable links, and supplementary resources. This interactivity can reinforce learning and check comprehension immediately.
Videos can incorporate graphics, animations, text overlays, and other multimedia elements, enriching the content and making it more versatile than static paper documents.
Videos can be viewed on multiple devices like smartphones, tablets, and computers. This makes accessing and referencing RAMS and training materials more convenient, especially on-site or in the field.
Using videos reduces the need for paper, printing, and distribution, which has a positive impact on the environment.
Updates & Revisions:
Making changes to a video and redistributing it is faster and can be more cost-effective than revising, reprinting, and redistributing paper documents.
Storage & Distribution:
Videos can be easily stored on cloud platforms and distributed to a wide audience without the physical constraints and costs associated with paper.
Videos can include features like subtitles or alternative language tracks, making them accessible to a wider range of viewers, including those with hearing impairments.
Zebsoft allows for feedback mechanisms, enabling viewers to ask questions or provide comments directly within the platform, fostering real-time interaction.
In essence, the shift from paper to video for RAMS and health and safety training offers a more engaging, efficient, and versatile method of delivering critical information. It taps into the increasing trend of digitalization and meets the expectations of a tech-savvy workforce.
