Site Safe

Taking health and safety training online in the wake of COVID-19

Delivering health and safety training online

Site Safe helps keep Aotearoa’s construction industry safe. That includes delivering core health and safety training through their Foundation Passport. 

COVID-19 meant Site Safe needed to get that training online quickly, and they needed to do it while the whole country was in lockdown.

A fast-changing environment meant group training was no longer an option

COVID-19 physical distancing requirements ruled out Site Safe’s previous face-to-face model. Hence, online learning was the obvious solution for upskilling workers to be ready to start as soon as site restrictions eased.

But developing and delivering content online was new territory for Site Safe — and potentially risky business in the already pressured COVID environment.

Even under tight deadlines our expertise made the transition fast and easy

The solution was Like-Minded. We used our instructional design, eLearning build and graphics skills — plus our proven and portable project management processes to create eLearning modules that are easy to follow — and pitched at the right level for Site Safe’s audiences.

Deadlines were tight and several modules were under development at the same time, but we made sure everyone knew when their input was required and there were no nasty surprises.

Success proven and ready for more

The online Foundation Passport means workers can gain or renew their Site Safety Card anywhere, anytime, using their own device. It’s flexible for learners and it’s efficient for Site Safe. 

The project has also given Site Safe confidence in online learning and the development process behind it, and we’re looking forward to working with them to take more Site Safe programmes online.

Like-Minded has been a real find. Their development work
coupled with
sound guidance and professional support has been exceptional. 
We have used Like-Minded on several projects ranging from developing health and safety online courses for our building construction and civil sector, through
to working with us to develop a 2-Year Moodle Strategy to realise our vision
for Site Safe Moodle to be a learning destination, rather than a one off
learning pit stop.  Their teams’ approach has been collaborative and
flexible in meeting our varied needs; they are passionate about eLearning and
supporting education providers to get the most from Moodle.  It has been a
real pleasure to work with the team and we look forward to working with them as we grow in the eLearning space.”
