Clive on Learning: The new self-directed learning toolkit


Via Holly MacDonald
Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:
Videos can be easily delivered to any device and can be highly-engaging as long as they are kept short and sweet. ...Web articles and PDFs are not a glamorous or high-tech solution, but they are the resources we normally turn to for a more in-depth examination of an issue. ...Scenarios are the one ingredient of contemporary e-learning which I would keep in my everyday toolkit. ...A forum is another simple, inexpensive tool which sits nicely alongside the packaged self-directed materials. ...Links might seem too trivial to be considered a self-directed core learning tool, but they act as a gateway to all sorts of other resources beyond the packaged materials that you have put together. ...

Save Yourself A Lot Of Pain And A Lifetime Of Back Problems!

PCS Consultants, Inc.'s curator insight, September 30, 2013 12:17 PM

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year, and back injuries account for one of every five workplace injuries or illnesses. Further, one-fourth of all compensation indemnity claims involve back injuries, costing employers billions of dollars. These figures do not begin to reflect the pain and suffering employees experience as a result of their injuries.

Back injuries are exceedingly painful. They are difficult to heal, and they have an effect upon everything a person does. If you have ever experienced a back injury, you already know this. What you may not know is that after you have experienced one back injury, you are much more likely to experience another one sometime during your lifetime. It is important to learn techniques and procedures that may help you prevent a reoccurrence.

If, on the other hand, you are lucky enough to have never injured your back, you can do yourself a big favor by learning how to prevent one in the future. By learning proper lifting techniques and the basics of back safety, you may be able to save yourself a lot of pain.... and a lifetime of back problems.

 

PCS's training products on "Back Safety" emphasize the importance of overall back care, both at work and at home, including exercises and weight control. Topics covered in these products include:

* How the back works.
* Common types and causes of back injuries.
* Effects of back injuries.
* Injury prevention and safety practices.
* Proper lifting techniques.
* and more.
