The Basic Course Pattern is an abstract solution to recurring design problems that you may experience when first starting to create your online course. The term was originally used in architecture, but it has been applied more recently to pedagogical patterns…documenting good practices in teaching. In architecture, the placement of doors, gates, windows, and other elements are design patterns that recur in many buildings. The idea of a lobby in a large office building is a design pattern. Over time, these patterns can lead to the discovery of an entirely new way of delivering your education online.
Multi-media is media and content that uses a combination of different content forms, and this is the start of the ‘pattern’ in using a variety of media to accomplish the course’s learning objectives. After analyzing the concept of a ‘Basic Course Pattern,’ you will then be able to continue your education to continually innovate your education.
Our educational philosophy places a major focus on the content in your course, this creates that ‘educational experience’ that will capture your students’ attention and make learning not feel like learning.

Unwelcome verbal or physical conduct based on race, color, religion, sex (whether or not of a sexual nature and including same-gender harassment and gender identity harassment), national origin, age (40 and over), disability (mental or physical), sexual orientation, or retaliation (sometimes collectively referred to as “legally protected characteristics”) can constitute harassment.
Behavior-Based Safety (BBS) has become an established and widely respected tool for safety improvement. BBS has clearly had its successes when implemented, among them introducing new tools that allow greater precision in making improvements in safety systems and equipment. As BBS continues to evolve as an environmental, health and safety tool, many are now asking how to build on the approach for even greater effectiveness in safety management.
Fatal occupational injuries resulting from transportation incidents by occupation are thousands of deaths a year that result from occupational transportation incidents. While fatal highway incidents remained the most frequent type of fatal work-related event, but still accounted for nearly two out of every five fatal work injuries.
Driving in traffic is more than just knowing how to operate the mechanisms which control the vehicle; it requires knowing how to apply the rules of the road which govern safe and efficient sharing with other users. An effective driver also has an intuitive understanding of the basics of vehicle handling and can drive responsibly in any type of environment.
The vast majority of drug users are employed and when they arrive for work they don’t leave their problems at the door. Research indicates that between 10% – 20% of the workers who die on the job test positive for alcohol or other drugs. In fact, industries with the highest rates of drug use are the same as those at a high risk for occupational injuries such as construction, mining, manufacturing, and wholesale.
Having an action plan is an important part of emergency preparedness and merely writing one isn’t enough; you also have to make sure it works properly. This training is designed for emergency response for employees who are involved in developing an effective emergency planning system. This course offers training in the fundamentals of the emergency planning process, including the rationale behind planning.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an agency of the United States Department of Labor. It was created by Congress of the United States under the Occupational Safety and Health Act and its mission is to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and occupational fatality by issuing and enforcing standards for workplace safety and health. It was also established to create a better workplace for all workers and to ensure the safety of everyone by making and enforcing certain standards that are needed to protect the people.
Planning and carrying out road transport missions safely requires a thorough understanding and strict adherence to safety rules. The challenge is to coordinate and monitor each step in this process so that missions are managed competently from beginning to end.
Leadership is the process of influencing others to achieve the organizational goals and the skills to interact between the leader, the followers, and the situation.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that 40% of employees injured at work have been on the job less than one year. While there is no specific requirement for new hire safety orientation, many training requirements explicitly state that training must be provided to new employees. New employees need to be made aware of how serious safety training is right from the start.
This training covers the placement, use, maintenance, and testing of portable fire extinguishers provided for the use of employees. Fire extinguishers need to provided for employee to use and it is essential that employers have an emergency action plan as well as a fire prevention plan that meet these safety requirements.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration requires the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to reduce employee exposure to hazards when engineering and administrative controls are not feasible or effective in reducing these exposures to acceptable levels. Employers are required by law to determine if PPE should be used to protect their workers.
This program explains guidelines for a Short Service Employee Program to appropriately supervise, train and monitor new experienced and inexperienced employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not specifically require discipline for an employee who violates company safety rules or OSHA regulations, but they do encourage disciplinary enforcement of employee safety violations. Some jurisdictions have their own safety, health laws and enforcement agencies that may have a requirement for disciplinary action and you should verify in your local jurisdiction. Government worker compensation laws may have a penalty for employees who are injured as a result of violating a known, posted safety rule and this varies by jurisdiction.
Your workforce is its most valuable asset and when an employee can’t work due to illness or injury, it impacts not only an organization’s productivity; but also its morale when an employee is returning to work.
Before safety comes employees’ attitude about safety and this will train how to build the best attitude in the workplace as well as maintain it when you do. You will learn different talk motivation technique, incentives, employee contests, recognition programs, and other safety awareness methods.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Housekeeping Rules state that all places of employment, passageways, storerooms, and service rooms should be kept clean and orderly and in a sanitary condition. This regulation makes specific mention to facilitate cleaning, every floor, and working place shall be kept free from protruding nails, splinters, holes, or loose boards so that passageways shall be kept clear and in good repair.
This Short Service Employee Program training explains guidelines so your business can appropriately supervise, train, and monitor new experienced as well as inexperienced employees.
Learn how a prime contractor and any subcontractors may make their own arrangements with respect to obligations which might be more appropriately treated on a jobsite basis rather than individually. This is how a prime contractor and his subcontractors may wish to make an express agreement that the prime contractor or one of the subcontractors will provide all required first-aid or toilet facilities. Then relieving the subcontractors from the actual, but not any legal, responsibility or, as the case may be, relieving the other subcontractors from this responsibility.
Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. Homicide is currently the fourth-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries and it can affect and involve employees, clients, customers as well as visitors.
Back injuries can be extremely painful and long-lasting, back strain due to overexertion represents one of the largest segments of employee injuries in the workplace. It’s important to know what types of acts are likely to cause back strain and how to work in ways to reduce the risk. Only the common cold accounts for more lost days of work, overexertion leading to back injuries is the second main reason for all disabling work accidents.
The Bloodborne Pathogens standard established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) requires employers to eliminate, or at least minimize, the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Learn how this standard requires employers of workers at risk of occupational exposure to blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (OPIM) to develop a written Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan. In addition, such employers must implement a combination of safety measures including engineering and work practice controls, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), employee training, and offering potentially exposed workers the necessary vaccinations.
Ergonomics is known as comfort design, functional design, and systems is the practice of designing products, systems, or processes to take proper account of the interaction between them and the people who use them. The goal of this training is to reduce a worker’s exposure to Musculo-Skeletal Disorder (MSD) risk factors by changing the design of a workstation or the way a job is performed, allowing workers to rotate through different jobs or providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
This eye protection safety training will teach employees the basics of eye protection on the job, including identifying the potential work activities that could cause injury eyes and understand how to prevent those injuries. Also covered is the use, maintenance, and inspection of protective eye-wear as well as the use of appropriate first aid for eye emergencies while at work.
Injuries or illnesses requiring only first aid are common in the workplace. First aid includes any one-time treatment and follow-up for observation of minor injuries, including: cuts, abrasions, bruises, first-degree burns, sprains, and splinters. One or more employees should be properly trained to administer basic first aid, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Workplaces should have a well-stocked first-aid kit and employees assigned the responsibility for administering or coordinating first-aid treatments.
Employers shall select and require employees to use appropriate hand protection when employees’ hands are exposed to hazards such as those from skin absorption of harmful substances. This includes severe cuts or lacerations, severe abrasions, punctures, chemical burns, thermal burns, and harmful temperature extremes.
Train operations involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for inducing heat stress in employees.
Learn how to control occupational diseases caused by breathing air contaminated with harmful dusts, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapors. The primary objective of this training is to prevent atmospheric contamination and how this is accomplished as far as feasible by accepted engineering control measures (for example, enclosure or confinement of the operation, general and local ventilation, and substitution of less toxic materials). When effective engineering controls are not feasible or while they are being instituted, appropriate respirators shall be used to ensure employee safety.
Thousands of accidents occur throughout workplaces every day due to the failure of people, equipment, supplies, or surroundings to behave or react as expected causes most of them. Accident investigations determine how and why these failures occur so using the information gained through an investigation, a similar, or perhaps more disastrous, accident can be prevented. It is important to conduct accident investigations with prevention in mind since there are currently no specific standards for accident investigation.
Workplace fire safety is the principal focus for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to save lives and prevent injuries due to fire. When OSHA conducts workplace inspections, it checks to see whether employers are complying with OSHA standards for fire safety and this requires employers to provide proper exits, fire fighting equipment, emergency plans, and employee training to prevent deaths as well as injuries from fire.
Recognizing and controlling hazards is an essential part of this responsibility. Other essential aspects of an effective accident prevention program include training employees, monitoring work practices, and ensuring accountability. Understanding this definition and following an established methodology for identifying and correcting hazards is essential to creating a safe work environment. We will will provide you with solid ideas to elevate safety through your hazard identification efforts. This training is focused on conducting workplace inspections and is designed to help employers improve the effectiveness of these activities
In the workplace one simple human error can lead to a severe accident or injury. With Job Safety Analysis (JSA) it takes a trained mind to evaluate the relationship between the worker, task, work area, tools, and equipment. A JSA allows supervisors to find the potential hazards before they occur so comprehensive job hazard analyses will reduce injury and illness rates, but also save money in workers’ compensation costs and downtime from accidents.
An employee may recount a story of a “close call” at work. He or she also may describe the incident as a “near collision” or “narrow escape.” All these terms refer to a near miss. A near-miss incident is an event that, although not resulting in an injury, illness or damage, had the potential to do so. Near misses generally are the result of a faulty process or management system, but a non-reporting culture can be corrected. Reporting near misses will significantly improve worker safety and enhance an business’ safety culture.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) assures safe and healthful working conditions for employees by setting and enforcing standards through providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Although safety hazards related to the physical characteristics of a chemical can be objectively defined in terms of testing requirements, health hazard definitions are less precise and more subjective. Health hazards may cause measurable changes in the body – such as decreased pulmonary function. These changes are generally indicated by the occurrence of signs and symptoms in the exposed employees – such as shortness of breath, a non-measurable, subjective feeling.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urge employers to conduct a root cause analysis following an incident or near miss at a facility. A root cause is a fundamental, underlying, system-related reason why an incident occurred that identifies one or more correctable system failures. By conducting a root cause analysis and addressing root causes, an employer may be able to substantially or completely prevent the same or a similar incident from recurring. This training will introduce basic accident investigation procedures, root cause analysis, and accident analysis techniques.
Workplace slips, trips, and falls are not always serious accidents, but it is the fourth leading cause of fatal injuries. Statistics show that non-fatal slips, trips and falls account for approximately 20% of all injuries involving lost workdays by employees. Learn how to prevent slips, trips, and falls in the workplace.
Train how only stairways, passageways, and ladders designated as means of access to the structure of a building shall be used. Other access ways shall be entirely closed at all times to ensure that all stairs, passageways, ladders as well as incidental equipment shall be periodically inspected and maintained in a safe condition.
Stop Work establishes the “authority and obligation” for any employee to suspend a single work task or group operation when the risk is not clearly established or understood. This training involves a stop, notify, correct, and resume approach for the resolution of a perceived unsafe condition, act, error, omission, or lack of understanding that could result in a undesirable event .
Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents, they cause 15% of all accidental deaths and are the second cause of fatalities in the workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for walking/working surfaces are trained to better protect workers in general industry from these hazards by updating, clarifying standards, and adding training as well as inspection requirements. It incorporates advances in technology, industry best practices, and national consensus standards to provide effective and cost-efficient worker protection.
The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for Hazard Communication of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals is a system for standardizing the classification and labeling of chemicals. The GHS includes criteria for the classification of health, physical and environmental hazards, as well as specifying what information should be included on labels of hazardous chemicals as well as safety data sheets.
In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) is based on a simple concept for employees who have a need and right to know the hazards and identities of the chemicals they are exposed to when working. They also need to know what protective measures are available to prevent adverse effects from occurring. Knowledge acquired under the HCS will help employers provide safer workplaces for their employees. When employees have information about the chemicals being used, they can take steps to reduce exposures, substitute less hazardous materials, and establish proper work practices. These efforts will help prevent the occurrence of work-related illnesses and injuries caused by chemicals.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all employees who potentially will work around or be exposed to Hazardous Materials (HazMat) to be trained before they begin working. Training includes an explanation of the hazards, how to handle hazardous materials, how to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), how to minimize risks from hazards, and medical surveillance requirements for monitoring as well as recognition of exposure symptoms.
The Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HazWoper) applies to employers and their employees who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances, including hazardous waste. The purpose of this training is to give employees a understanding of what HazWoper means, the purpose of the standards, and requirements associated with safety, health training as well as medical surveillance. They will also have a general understanding of chemical hazards, control measures, and the basic requirements of emergency response training.
Arc-Flash (also called a flashover) is distinctly different from the arc blast, is part of an arc fault, a type of electrical explosion or discharge that results from a low-impedance connection through air-to-ground or another voltage phase in an electrical system. Employers are required to mark electrical equipment with descriptive markings, including the equipment’s voltage, current, wattage, or other ratings as necessary. Having training requirements for qualified persons, will provide employees the necessary information to protect themselves from arc-flash hazards so they can identify safety measures to comply with or supplement the requirements for preventing or protecting against arc-flash hazards
A carcinogen is any substance, radio-nuclide, or radiation that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer. This may be due to the ability to damage the genome or to the disruption of cellular metabolic processes and millions of U.S. workers are exposed to chemical materials that could be carcinogenic. If any of your employees are in this group, train them to take these steps to protect themselves from carcinogen exposure.
Anyone working in a cold environment may be at risk of cold stress, but given that you cannot monitor everyone all the time, there’s only so much that can be done in any safety situation. Some workers may be required to work outdoors in cold environments and for extended periods since cold stress can be encountered in these types of work environment. In the end, the responsibility for safety always falls on the individual worker so they need to understand the risks of cold weather so they know when these threats may be affecting them.
Many workplaces contain areas that are considered “confined spaces” because while they are not necessarily designed for people, they are large enough for workers to enter and perform certain jobs. This training aims to provide a helpful overview of the requirements, as well as some compliance tips to give your programs a boost, or to help you get one off the ground. These spaces can present physical and atmospheric hazards that can be prevented if addressed prior to entering the space to perform work.
Moving large, heavy loads is crucial to today’s industries and technology has been developed for these operations, including careful training and extensive workplace precautions. There are significant safety issues to be considered, both for the operators of the diverse “lifting” devices and for workers in proximity to them. This training servers a starting point for information about this type of equipment, including elevators and conveyors and their operations.
Electrical hazards can cause burns, shocks and electrocution leading to death. Understanding the electrical safety is essential for workers’ safety when they are using are machine operators, operators of powered industrial trucks, construction workers, and other personnel who are not specifically qualified to perform electrical work. Employees need to know essential information about the hazards of electricity and how to prevent serious injury.
Excavation and trenching are among the most hazardous construction operations, it is any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in the earth’s surface formed by earth removal. A trench is defined as a narrow underground excavation that is deeper than it is wide, and is no wider than 15 feet (4.5 meters). Cave-ins pose the greatest risk and are much more likely than other excavation related accidents to result in worker fatalities. Other potential hazards include falls, falling loads, hazardous atmospheres, and incidents involving mobile equipment. Trench collapses cause dozens of fatalities and hundreds of injuries each year.
The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) regulates the emissions of air toxins by keeping standards, by environmental awareness training you can increase employee awareness and knowledge about environmental issues or problems. This helps to promote environmental awareness and stewardship by helping provide employees with the skills they need in order take responsible actions to protect the environment.
Thousands of injuries are related to Powered Industrial Trucks (PIT), or forklifts, occur in workplaces. Most employee injuries and property damage can be attributed to lack of safe operating procedures, lack of safety-rule enforcement, and insufficient or inadequate training. Most incidents also involve property damage, including damage to overhead sprinklers, racking, pipes, walls, and machinery. Many of these employees are injured when lift trucks are inadvertently driven off loading docks, lifts fall between docks and an unsecured trailer, they are struck by a lift truck, or when they fall while on elevated pallets and tines.
This training is designed to present to employees and employers a summary of the basic safety procedures and safeguards associated with hand and portable power tools. Hand and power tools are a common part of the everyday workplace and these tools help us to easily perform tasks that otherwise would be difficult. Yet, they can be hazardous and cause severe injuries when used or maintained improperly so special attention is required in order to reduce or eliminate these hazards using hand and power tools.
Hot work is any work that involves burning, welding, using fire- or spark-producing tools, or that produces a source of ignition. Welding and cutting operations are common to drilling and servicing operations. Learn how to test for flammable gases in the work area before starting any hot work. Potentially hazardous areas include, but are not limited to, well heads, fuel tanks, mud tanks, tank batteries, gas separators, oil treaters, or confined spaces where gases can accumulate.
Hydrogen sulfide gas causes a wide range of health effects and workers are primarily exposed to hydrogen sulfide by breathing it. In order to work safely around hydrogen sulfide, employees must be aware of its properties and characteristics. This training teaches how to recognize when hydrogen sulfide is present in the work area and take necessary precautions to work with it safely. Learn how the effects depend on how much hydrogen sulfide you breathe and for how long as well as how exposure to very high concentrations can quickly lead to death. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly flammable, explosive gas, and can cause possible life-threatening situations if not properly handled.
Failure to control hazardous energy accounts for nearly 10% of the serious accidents in many industries. Proper Lockout Tagout (LOTO) practices and procedures safeguard workers from hazardous releases. outlines measures for controlling different types of hazardous energy or materials. The LOTO standard establishes the employer’s responsibility to protect workers from hazardous energy and employers are also required to train each worker to ensure that they know, understand, and are able to follow this standard.
Moving machine parts have the potential to cause severe workplace injuries, such as crushed fingers or hands, amputations, burns, or blindness. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from these preventable injuries from any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury. One or more methods of machine guarding needs be provided to protect the operator and other employees in the machine area from hazards such as those created by point of operation, in-going nip points, rotating parts, flying chips and sparks. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be eliminated or controlled.
Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) consist of materials, usually industrial wastes or by-products enriched with radioactive elements found in the environment, such as uranium, thorium and potassium and any of their decay products, such as radium and radon. Workers at risk of exposure include those who handle pipes and equipment that might have been contaminated with NORM. Sludge, drilling mud, and pipe scales, for example, often contain elevated levels of NORM, and the radioactive materials might be moved from site to site as equipment and materials are reused. Disposal, reuse, and recycling of NORM might cause worker exposures.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates workplace safety around pinch points to reduce occupational injuries. Pinch points are any point other than the point of operation at which it is possible for a part of the body to be caught between the moving parts of a press or auxiliary equipment, or between moving and stationary parts of a press or auxiliary equipment or between the material and moving part or parts of the press or auxiliary equipment.
Rigging is a critical part in commercial industries when working with equipment, components or sections for lifting by cranes, hoists or other material handling equipment. Employees have been injured or killed when loads have slipped from the rigging, or when the rigging has failed. Rigging equipment for material handling shall be inspected prior to use on each shift and as necessary during its use to ensure that it is safe. Defective rigging equipment shall be removed from service. Improper rigging of a load or a rigging failure can expose riggers and other workers nearby to a variety of potential hazards.
Employers have a responsibility to warn employees, contractors, temporary employees and visitors about hazards that exist in the workplace. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to use and follow established safety sign and marking requirements.
Storm Water is water that originates during precipitation events and does not soak into the ground becomes surface runoff, which either flows directly into surface waterways or is channeled into storm sewers. Understand the principles and practices of Storm Water management, erosion and sediment control during construction activities. This training will cover the process of erosion and sedimentation, erosion and sediment control, best management practices selection and application, and structural and non-structural installation guidelines.
Welding, cutting, and brazing are hazardous activities that pose a unique combination of both safety and health risks to workers in a wide variety of industries. Basic precautions and of the special precautions for fire protection and injury prevention responsibilities of welders and cutters, their supervisors (including outside contractors) and those in management on whose property cutting and welding is to be performed.
A train-the-trainer model enables experienced personnel to show a less-experienced instructor how to deliver courses, workshops and seminars. Usually, a new instructor first observes a training event led by the course designer or subject-matter expert. A train-the-trainer workshop can build a pool of competent instructors who can then teach the material to other people. Instead of having just one instructor who teaches a course for a long time, you have multiple instructors teaching the same course at the same time. This ensures that employees get timely training to complete tasks according to company policies and procedures.

We provide your cannabis business with a user-friendly solution for measuring employee learning so you can define areas for quality improvement and increase their competencies to make your business better.
1. Save $$$ & Time
Investment in training can improve a company’s financial standing. Poor performance often results when employees don’t know exactly what they’re supposed to do, how to do their jobs or why they need to work a certain way. Training can help solve these performance problems by explaining the details of the job.
We help reduce duplication of effort in the workplace, the time spent correcting mistakes and the problem solving necessary to correct bad performances. Improved performance from employee training can reduce staff turnover, lower maintenance costs by reducing equipment breakdowns and result in fewer customer complaints. Better performance from employees typically creates less need for supervision and brings increased worker output.
2. Employee Satisfaction
Job satisfaction generally increases and self-esteem improves when employees better understand the workings of the company. Training can also enhance morale on the job and loyalty to your business. Workers who believe their company offers excellent training opportunities are generally less likely to leave their companies within a year of training than employees with poor training opportunities.
3. Expectations & Needs
Training plays a key role in employee commitment and the program must meet expectations and needs of the employees. You are more likely to retain employees who view their training as relevant to their jobs and subsequently have a positive commitment to their company. A successful training program consists of management providing employees with accurate information and communication about the training as well as a program that ensures that training is relevant to their jobs.
4. Turnover Costs
Keeping well-trained employees pays off significantly for companies because the cost of employee turnover is extremely expensive for your business. Costs include separation costs, such as exit interviews, administrative functions related to termination, severance pay and unemployment compensation. Replacement costs consist of attracting applicants, entrance interviews, time expenses, pre-employment administrative expenses, medical exams and employment information.
5. Training Factors
Many factors determine whether a training program will be effective for a company that has lost employees, depending on how many workers are leaving. For example, using temporary workers to fill in for former employees on occasion might actually save costs.
Management can determine if a training program will work out by looking at the increased workloads for employees caused by vacancies, the stress and tension from turnover, declining employee morale and the decreased productivity that results from high loss of employees.

Our Blended Learning combines online digital media with traditional classroom methods so it requires the physical presence of both the trainer and employees.
Traditional classroom training is used to keep track of in-person (ex. on-site) training which require advance booking, each activity is offered in one or more identical sessions and these sessions can be given over multiple days.
- Onsite Workshop Training: Select members of our team join for face-to-face training and an extensive Q&A session to make sure you have all of the answers you need.
- Consulting Services: Our Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) are leaders in the cannabis industry and are available to consult with your organization on a variety of initiatives.
Cannabis Integration provides pedagogical approaches, digital curriculum and tools for teaching in online or blended classrooms and hands-on experience learning in our solution.
We engage in thoughtful planning with your business in order for these initiatives to be successful and improve your employees’ competencies.
