The Saskatchewan Construction Safety Association is doing their part to enhance safety awareness and education efforts.
The organization recently announced they’re expanding their Guide to OHS Legislation app, originally released back in September.
President Collin Pullar said improvements have been in the works for a while.
“We knew we wanted to grow it,” he said. “We wanted to add some new topics some new topics like issues like harassment, duties of employers.”
Pullar further noted these are topics that are of great importance to employers and members.
“We went out and did a little bit of a survey, saying ‘what do you think that we need next?'” he said. “And these were the things that kept popping up.”
The SCSA has also entered partnership with White Rabbit VR, to develop 360 degree Virtual Reality experiences for the safety training environment in Saskatchewan.
“One of the cool things about this partnership is that virtual reality takes the way we teach – in the classroom, on the work site, in demos – to a whole new level,” explains Pullar, “This changes the game for us in so far as building stronger impressions in learning. It gives the user experience in navigating dangerous situations and developing safety management systems in a safe way.
“We always remind our clients that VR is not the technology of tomorrow – its the technology of today.”
