Our goal as we launch this new safety program is to ensure every CDL driver has the information they need to safely cross a highway-rail grade crossing, every single time.
(PRWEB) October 04, 2011
Allen Interactions, an internationally acclaimed custom design, development and strategic consulting firm of e-learning and blended learning solutions, partnered with Operation Lifesaver, a national, non-profit safety education group, creating an interactive e-learning course, recently featured in USA Today, that focuses on truck driver safety at railroad crossings.
Operation Lifesaver’s goal is to eliminate deaths and injuries at railroad crossings and along railroad rights-of-way. Operation Lifesaver’s goal aligns completely with Allen Interactions' definition of success – getting the right people to do the right thing at the right time – which is especially critical when it involves railway crossings. So, with this critical life-saving goal in mind, Operation Lifesaver partnered with Allen Interactions to create the e-learning course: Operation Lifesaver’s Railroad Safety for Professional Drivers e-Learning Challenge. This e-learning course provides a simulated driving environment allowing drivers to work independently, exposing them to worst-case scenarios requiring quick thinking and critical decision-making at railroad crossings.
“Our goal as we launch this new safety program is to ensure every CDL driver has the information they need to safely cross a highway-rail grade crossing, every single time,” stated Operation Lifesaver, Inc. President, Helen M. Sramek. "Since June 9, about 15,000 truck drivers have completed this e-learning challenge, with the goal of reaching 100,000 drivers by the end of this year," Operation Lifesaver spokeswoman, Marmie Edwards, stated.
This e-learning course is available to the public and is only 15 minutes long. Pass along this link to any truck drivers, trucking companies, independent drivers and other organizations. We can all improve our safety at railway crossings and help keep everyone safe.
