Sight & Hearing Loss: Living the Experience

MONDAY, December 5, 2022 on ZOOM

ABOUT THE SESSION

This presentation shares statistics of eye injuries in the workplace, hearing loss caused by the workplace and overall impact on the employee, family and environment. As this presentation is virtual a simulation experience of having vision & hearing loss is not possible but will include a “tactile tour” involving being blindfolded and trying to identify objects tactually. Resources including agencies and technical support will be shared for future reference in the workplace.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Friday, October 7, 2022 – on ZOOM

ABOUT THE SESSION

This session will focus on how the brain learns using the five human senses and how the brain translates the senses into a type of picture for better learning retention. What does safety look like, why is it one of the hardest subjects to understand. How a picture can be the most effective tool for our brains to understand and remember.
