Learning to process visual information effectively is more than just theoretical. Organizations looking to improve Environmental Health and Safety processes can adopt this approach to enhance hazard recognition, incident investigation and pre-job safety analysis; decrease incident rates, while saving time; and train their team to engage safely with the workplace environment.
COVE provides a highly adaptable and practical framework for enhancing best practices in health and safety operations. Implementation of this method promises far-reaching benefits for a wide range of organizations, including major manufacturing and petrochemical business in leading Fortune 500 companies.
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.
COVE’s cutting-edge visual literacy curriculum is based on the Toledo Museum of Art’s effort to help people see the world. Since its inception, TMA has spearheaded the effort to increase visual comprehension and communication via the world’s great works of art. Now they’re putting theory into practice, working with major organizations to drive success at every level by implementing strategies for seeing better in the workplace.
