Escape From a Fire
This is an exercise that leads the student through a fire situation in a shop. A fire breaks out and spreads quickly, how will each student react and what decisions will they make? The exercise places the student in the fire and ask a question about the fire scene. The student must than choose from several answers for that particular situation. If the student gives the correct answer the program acknowledges that fact and moves on to the next question. If the student gives a wrong answer the program tells the student it is wrong, explains why and allows the student to select another answer. At the end of the program a total score is given and an explanation of the results. A very good program to help determine the overall decision making ability of a student in a fire situation.
What’s wrong with this picture? The best way to prevent accidents is to avoid the hazards, but first you must recognize the hazards. This is an exercise that leads the person through a series of hazards in the mining environment and gives the person an opportunity to find the things wrong by using the mouse to click on each one in the picture. The narrator of the program tells the individual whether or not he or she has chosen a hazard or some other object that is not a hazard along with the MSHA regulation(s) covering that particular hazard. The program covers common everyday hazards found during normal mining work activities, which helps the person relate more to what the hazards are and how they would affect him or her in their work duties. At the end of the program the person is given their score so they see how well they did.
