If you want to deliver effective training in a short amount of time, it has to be engaging, and it has to be easily recalled when people are actually out there on the job.

Vancouver, Washington (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

Convergence Training, a division of Capstone Technology Corporation, today announced the availability of a new series of safety-focused “Toolbox Talk” videos, produced with the support of Caterpillar Inc. through Caterpillar Safety Services and Caterpillar University.

The new videos are derived from Caterpillar’s extensive library of Toolbox Talk discussion guides, and are designed to supplement the popular text-based documents.

Developed using Convergence Training’s signature combination of high-quality 3D renders and motion graphics, the courses aim to deliver the greatest possible training experience in the limited time afforded by the Toolbox Talk format.

“Toolbox Talks are intended to be short,” says Randy Kohltfarber, General Manager of Convergence Training. “If you want to deliver effective training in a short amount of time, it has to be engaging, and it has to be easily recalled when people are actually out there on the job. High-quality audio-visual training content like ours is proven to be more effective at delivering a memorable training experience than your standard lecture or PowerPoint presentation, and I think that’s what makes us a great fit for this project.”

Keeping in spirit with the Toolbox Talk concept, Convergence Training developed each of the Caterpillar Toolbox Talk videos to be from 3-15 minutes long and to focus discussion around a single safety topic. The first seven videos are aligned with Caterpillar’s most popular Toolbox Talk guides:

  •     Back Protection 
  •     Building a Safety Culture 
  •     Common Safety Mistakes 
  •     Cost of an Accident 
  •     Fatigue Avoidance 
  •     Operator Visibility Around Heavy Equipment 
  •     Safe Use of Cell Phones

The Toolbox Talk DVDs are available for sale online at ShopCatSafety.com and from BuyBetterTraining.com. Computer-based versions of the Toolbox Talk courses can be accessed through Caterpillar University, or via the Convergence LMS training management platform. 

Convergence Training is a leading producer of occupational health and safety training videos, training management software, and regulatory compliance tools for general industry, manufacturing, pulp and paper, and mining.
