This training describes the actions needed for everyone to remain safe during the winter season.

Over the years, employers have discovered that their employees miss more time from work as a result of off-the-job accidents than due to injuries experienced on the job! Many of these accidents occur during the winter holidays, as employees do things they are not familiar with or have not done in quite some time. Fortunately, most of these accidents can be prevented.

"Winter Safety" show learners how to plan ahead, look for potential hazards, and avoid dangerous situations that occur during the winter holiday season.

Forty-three interactions actively involve the learner in the training. Lesson interactions provide the learner opportunities to apply what he or she has learned. The computer assesses the learner’s level of understanding of all learning objectives. When the learner answers a question incorrectly the computer provides remedial instruction and reviews the material until the learner can answer correctly. All questions in this training are fully narrated. Narrations enhance comprehension and are welcome support for learners with reading skill deficits and when English is the learner’s second language.

Mastery’s exclusive Follow-up Review, standard in all Mastery Advantage courses, provides time-delayed reinforcement and review of the learner’s newly acquired knowledge. The Follow-up Review enhances the transfer of newly acquired knowledge to the learner’s long-term memory.

The Learner navigates through the course and its resources using the standard Mastery Control Bar. Training resources include a fully narrated glossary of terms. Each term is pronounced and its definition read aloud to the learner. A topical index provides a complete map to the training material. The learner can ask for all course information on any topic at any time during the lesson presentations. A complete transcript of all audio and video files is also provided with this course. Use the transcript file in conjunction with MODIFY to simplify customizations.

Closed Captioning is included.
