There are situations at work that rarely occur. But when they do, you want your team to be well-prepared.
In the ideal world, your team would never have to deal with a big catastrophe at your industry park, such as an explosion or a power failure. Still, they do need to be prepared for all eventualities. Learning how to handle these situations can be hard, as they cannot be trained in real life.
Protecting your team from accidents is one of your most important tasks. Letting them work in a difficult environment, such as the top of a wind turbine in an offshore wind park is potentially dangerous and the cost of mistake in these situations can be very high. Training these situations on-site for the first time can be too dangerous and costly. Therefore, simulations must be as accurate as possible, giving your team the feeling of a real-life situation.
The most effective way to learn a skill is by doing, not by watching demonstrations.
Scenario-based training gives learners hands-on experience in handling situations that could come up in their workplace. They can apply their skills in real world situations that mirror the difficult work challenges that they will face when they return to the job. Task-based learning helps your workforce to identify the course of action that will produce the desired result. Because it’s anchored in real world situations, your employees will be far more engaged and prepared to perform, avoiding costly errors.
