NSC Safetyworks(TM) Lift Truck Introduced -- Breakthrough, Simulation-Based, Safety Training Program for Lift Truck Operators
ITASCA, Ill., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NSC Safetyworks(TM) Lift Truck combines leading edge videogame technology with interactive training techniques to produce a breakthrough, simulation-based, safety training program for new and experienced lift truck operators. This engaging, effective and affordable software provides operators a way to experience "real-world" lift truck operations -- and mistakes -- without endangering lives or property.
This software program can simulate the operations of several classes of lift trucks. Trainees operate the lift truck through five task-based lessons in a virtual warehouse and outdoor environment. In each lesson, trainees apply the skills they learn to execute everyday tasks and react to typical obstacles and conditions safely. Trainees receive immediate feedback, in real time, increasing awareness of their personal performance compared to best safety practices. After completing the lessons, trainees take a cumulative exam where their performance is tracked and recorded.
NSC Safetyworks(TM) Lift Truck is an innovative, cost-effective complement to traditional lift truck operator training for OSHA compliance. It is designed to run on current PCs and video cards. (For complete hardware and software requirements, go to safetyworks.nsc.org) Trainees control the virtual lift truck using a standard keyboard. Optionally, an off-the-shelf steering wheel can be purchased independently to create an even more realistic experience.
This new software is the product of collaboration between the National Safety Council(R) (NSC(R)) and Etcetera Edutainment. NSC Safetyworks(TM) Lift Truck premiered at the recent National Safety Congress & Expo in Anaheim, California where it was well received by the safety community. NSC is accepting orders for the product release in December. Product information is available at safetyworks.nsc.org and orders can be placed by calling NSC Customer Relations at 800-621-7619.
The National Safety Council (www.nsc.org) saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes, communities and on the roads, through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
Etcetera Edutainment is a leader in developing 3-D games and simulation products for industrial and workplace safety to increase knowledge retention and decrease the risk of accidents and mishaps in the workplace.
