Understanding the challenges of effectively “Seeing”
Through COVE's innovative training, participants learn to understand and interpret what they see in a meaningful way — including obvious and hidden hazards that are present.
Training provides a roadmap to help prioritize and implement mitigation of risk by learning about Seeing the Whole PICTURE® – catching, describing, interpreting and communicating details that lead to better risk management, safety observation, and hazard identification.
As part of our Visual Literacy program, COVE offers several learning modules that provides employees with new tools to see risk in common situations from a new perspective, using skills and approaches to identify hazards they did not see before.
Available modules include, Introduction to Visual Literacy, Hazard Identification, Incident Investigation and Serious Injury and Fatality prevention. Modules include training materials, presentation decks, learner workbooks, exercises and accompany materials.
Skills and Capabilities
Prior to integrating COVE principles into their existing safety training, Owen's Corning had an established HRC training and certification process that focused on how employees typically were injured. Although they had great success with this program, they wanted to embed Visual Literacy practices and concepts into its Hazard Recognition and Control 2.0 program.
Seeing the Gaps in Your Safety Program
As organizations struggle to make safety training interesting and as they find it hard to ‘keep things fresh’, Visual Literacy offers a vehicle by which safety officers can address a clear and important gap in their safety programs – and simultaneously renew and refresh existing programs.
