ClickSafety® Keeps Safety Top of Mind

ClickSafety® Keeps Safety Top of Mind

In less than 60 seconds a day, Baker Group employees continually enhance their safety knowledge. It happens through ClickSafety, a “micro-learning” adaptive software program that Baker Group implemented in spring 2018.  

“Each day, participating employees get a different question via their desktop or in their email,” says Tracy Haus, Safety Director. “It might be about electrocution hazards, fall hazards, struck-by hazards and caught-in or -between hazards. They answer the question and receive immediate feedback and education.”

Baker Group’s ClickSafety dashboard reports how safety-savvy employees are overall. It also ranks individual employees’ results, which – at Baker Group – has resulted in a fun competition.

“I used to only hear employees talking about safety in safety training or business meetings. Now I hear them openly talking about safety in hallways, on jobsites and in many more meetings. The heightened awareness makes them safer on the job, which benefits all of us,” Haus says.
