Waste, sediment and runoff from construction and worksites is a big environmental problem. Chemicals, metals, plastics, concrete, and even unwanted dirt can be devastating to the natural environment, especially waterways and the sea where stormwater is discharged.
The great thing is that everyone on a worksite has the power to make a difference. We worked with Site Safe to create an education programme that empowers everyone, from labour hand to boss, to take responsibility for keeping a site clean and tidy to protect our environment.
Asking the experts
Development for this course was completed entirely online, without travelling for any in-person meetings. This allowed us to reduce our carbon footprint and costs, while collaborating with Site Safe and Auckland Council from our office in Christchurch. It was a complex process that required regular discussions with subject matter experts from both organisations to make sure the information is accurate, informative and useful. We then applied our own Like-Minded expertise to develop visual and interesting online learning modules.
Opening new doors with online collaboration
This was the largest project that we had carried out completely online. Because it was such a great success, we can confidently work with more remote clients in other Aotearoa locations or even overseas, knowing that we can deliver to our usual excellent standard while collaborating via email and videoconference.
It was also great to work with a client that has captured a great bank of real-life photography, meaning we didn’t have to rely on stock images to bring the learning to life.
“Auckland Council and Site Safe collaborated on an environmental site management course. The Like-Minded team walked us through the process, and helped to transfer technical ideas into simple, clear content for our learners.”
