What is your Visual Learning Series?
Our series of safety and skills training workbooks (and posters) are extensively illustrated so that all employees will be
able to grasp deeper concepts from them, regardless of comprehension difficulties, workload or language barriers.
Is the VLS beginner level or simply awareness level safety?
Our series is the best place for beginners and experienced people to start.  This is because the use of extensive
illustration will aid their progress along the steep learning curve.  The VLS is full safety training, not just orientation, not
just awareness level safety training. Interestingly, they enable experienced employees to better instruct, correctly.
What led to the VLS creation?
Dissatisfaction with conventional training methods drove the creation of the VLS.  We want real results whereby
employees can avoid injury seemlessly with their work.  We also want working student employees to be afforded to grasp
these concepts readily.
Are the VLS materials complicated?
On the contrary, the VLS series is the product of a huge effort to de-complicate safety training.  The authors spent
decades performing safety training via conventional methods and planned this evolution for many years.  Legaleese and
redundancy have been greatly reduced or removed, yet opportunity for comprehension has been raised.
Why not teach workers OSHA law?
It is unnecessary and never creates a safer workplace.  Busy student/employees would have to increase their
comprehension skills in order to be able to interpret safety law/policy and then decipher what that means to them in their
workplace.  It’s a bridge too far.  That poor design is why accidents don’t decrease under most safety training.  OSHA law
interpretation is best left to safety professionals and supervisors.  Teach hazards and mitigation methods to student
employees, along with skills.
Do the workbooks integrate with each other?
Yes they do.  We cumulatively have ~850 pages of illustrated material that is organic, each subject complementing the
other.  The materials are also color-coordinated and have symbols that provide definitions throughout all the materials.
How often do you upgrade or build new materials?
We illustrate as often as we are inspired.  We have often envisioned an illustration that speaks better to a situation, or
whereby we may replace verbiage and install into our workbooks. Our policy of upgrading this way has yielded marvelous
results. As we have reached a higher level of communication we noticed areas where we did not, then rectified that.
How are the VLS materials received?
Trainers, supervisors and student/employees tell us that they love our new VLS materials.

Ladders & Basic Scaffolding Safety Training Workbook
Set of 10 Ladders & Basic Scaffolds Safety Training Workbooks + Instructor Copy
We built this brand new workbook as Basic
Scaffolding Use & Safety Training.  Not just
awareness training and not competent
person training, which would be overkill for
most students. Students will come away with
greatly expanded awareness of the hazards
of using ladders and scaffolds.  - 2019
