The Best Assessment Tools for Mine Safety Training — Wireless Audience Response and Voting System

“The mining industry has faced safety challenges for decades, and my safety training has become an important part of keeping miners safe and healthy. Today, more and more laws require mine operators to provide initial safety for all new mine workers And health training, some jobs and specific situations (eg work on new assignments) require specialized training. Emergency preparedness and response training are also required. So we have to organize regular training of mineworkers on their safe work.

Before using the SunVote wireless audience response and voting system, we always face the following challenges in mine worker training:

  1. Miners who need training are usually adults. When they are studying, it is difficult to focus on the training content and listen carefully for a long time. At the same time, their memory declines, making it difficult to remember what they have learned from existing training materials. They prefer to interact with lecturers and learn in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. How do engage learners in real-time and increase knowledge retention?
  2. In the traditional safety training course, only a small number of mineworkers have the opportunity to answer questions, and the lecturer can only get very little feedback on the learning situation of the trainees within the limited training time. How to assess the understanding of each trainee and improve the efficiency of safety training?
  3. A large number of test papers need to be printed and distributed before the training. When the training has been finished, it is necessary to manually score the papers, and sort and archive them. The training management personnel have a heavy workload and cannot immediately evaluate the training effect?

SunVote wireless audience response and the voting system is indeed a great training tool that helps us solve these difficult problems well!

Solution:

SunVote wireless audience response and the voting system create an interactive environment for instructors and trainees, creating a relaxed training and learning atmosphere, allowing each trainee to actively participate in training, maintain their focus, and instantly assess each trainee’s knowledge levels so that we can timely adjust the training progress. Each training performance report can be automatically generated and recorded in the training file, and be stored and traced for a long time, which is conducive to the tracking and analysis of the training effect in the later stage. Using the assessment audience response system, the entire training process can realize paperless operation, which saves a lot of manpower and material resources while saving energy and environmental protection, and helps training managers to free themselves from the heavy training management work.

“We conducted a simple test with ten miners who will be participating in the training before the training to understand their basic knowledge and skill level. Then we can spend more time teaching more important content and difficult points. SunVote audience response management systems have been really helpful for us to better prepare courseware and organize personalized training.”

“After teaching an important point, we activate the SunVote wireless audience response and voting system and play the question slides via MS PowerPoint while our students answer the questions using their voting clickers. The answering data can be 100% collected within 10 seconds. and the answer results can be immediately displayed on the PC and the big screen for everyone to view. The assessment audience response system can help us grab everyone’s attention, evaluate each trainee’s knowledge and understanding in real-time, and adjust the training plan in time according to the answer results displayed in real-time, so we can push the training to the right level. Trainees also show more interest in our training courses and are willing to share their views and opinions with us. I believe that audience response management systems have indeed greatly enhanced the confidence of the miners and increased knowledge retention as they can gain a good understanding of their learning status in a non-threatening environment.

“When the training is over, we always use the wireless audience response and voting system to organize a test to comprehensively evaluate the learning outcomes of the trainees. The assessment audience response system will automatically grade the objective questions and generate the correct rate, individual and overall reports. A variety of multi-dimensional analysis training reports can be automatically saved. In this way, we can easily view and export performance reports, saving us a lot of time and effort in manual statistics. Through performance analysis reports, we can compare the effects before and after training, easily measure which trainees have achieved their learning goals, and identify trainees who need to be retrained. This helps us improve our training program.

“After each training, we always use the wireless audience response and voting system to organize a test to comprehensively evaluate the learning outcomes of the trainees. The assessment audience response system automatically grades the objective questions and generates the correct rate, individual score, and a variety of multi-dimensional analysis reports. In this way, we can easily view and export training reports, saving us a lot of time and effort in manual statistics. What’s more, we can compare the effects before and after training, easily measure which trainees have achieved their learning goals, and identify trainees who need to be retrained. This helps us improve our training program. Training results are recorded one by one, legal and compliant, which avoids accountability.”

“I think one of the great advantages of SunVote wireless audience response and the voting system is that it can be used without network conditions, not restricted by network environment, suits for any venue. For my safety training, we often need to be in an open venue. Most of the time, there is a lack of a good network environment, and the assessment audience response system completely avoids this problem.
