Overview Presentation

The modules that make up the My Virtual Safety Trainer (MVST) General Industry course are developed to enable learners to identify, mitigate, and proactively respond to potential hazards in the workplace with confidence.

There are 23 interactive learning modules that make up this self-paced course. Each module covers the necessary OSHA safety topics and takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Interactive simulations, 360-video experiences, and traditional videos are included to enhance learning objectives and outcomes.

The simulations are easy to access, and can be interacted with on a mobile device, desktop keyboard & mouse, or for the most immersive experience – a virtual reality headset!

At the end of each module, learners are required to pass a short quiz to ensure competency and understanding of the learning.

The primary objective of MVST is to provide an enhanced training experience that is fun, engaging, and allows learners to better apply their knowledge to relatable on-the-job scenarios. The development of hazard identification, situational awareness, and self-reflection skills are what sets this type of training apart from other eLearning courses.
