Hyderabad, India - October 20, 2007 – CommLab India, a trusted training partner offering custom learning solutions to major corporate organizations since 2000, developed engaging, interactive online courses on electric safety for BC Hydro, using Adobe Flash. BC Hydro is a Canadian electric utility company, serving more than 1.8 million customers. It has employees working in hydroelectric facilities, in extremely hazardous conditions.
To ensure the safety of its workforce, BC Hydro wanted to sensitize employees who access its power system facilities, field staff, and contract workers, on the possible electric hazards and safety measures to be adhered. There were a series of 4 online courses, each having 3-4 lessons.
BC Hydro witnessed high application rates of safety precautions among field staff, once they completed the digital trainings. Staff working in high risk areas found it very easy to recall and follow the various safety measures such as the usage of personal protection equipment (PPE) and recommended safe distances to be maintained, thanks to the highly interactive, immersive courses. "Our staff is now well-versed in following safety precautions and we are happy we achieved our aim of inculcating a safety culture", shared a training manager at BC Hydro.
