Q.
What is your Visual Learning Series?
A.
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.
Q.
Is the VLS beginner level or simply awareness level safety?
A.
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 a 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.
Q.
What led to the VLS creation?
A.
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.
Q.
Are the VLS materials complicated?
A.
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.  Graphic Safety
training materials are unique from all other training materials.
Q.
Why not teach workers extensive OSHA law?
A.
Giving employees a sense of safety law should not comprise the whole of the training.  For workers, a mention of the law is
enough because more 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
and copious safety policy.  OSHA law interpretation is best left to safety professionals and supervisors.  Teach hazards
and mitigation methods to student employees, along with skills.
Q.
What makes your design for safety training so much better?
A.
Scenery, visual cues and extensive illustration gives the students the feel of how safety training integrates into their actual
work.  We have done the work of translating OSHA law into actual workplace scenarios.  
Q.
Do the workbooks integrate with each other?
A.
Yes they do.  We cumulatively have ~900 pages of illustrated material that is organic, each subject complementing the
other.  The materials are also color-coordinated and have icon symbols that provide definitions throughout all the materials.
Q.
How often do you upgrade or build new materials?
A.
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.  
However, in 2019 our training materials have reached a place of maturity far beyond what we originally envisioned.  
Q.
How are the VLS materials received?
A.
Trainers, supervisors and student/employees tell us that they love our new VLS materials.

Illustrated Workbooks for Teaching Safety

  • Engineered for busy workers – not aimed to split their attention.
  • We work to eliminate abstract concepts (as if safety were a notion separate from work).  
    We illustrate workplace scenes to provide direct correlation = concepts in action.
  • We illustrate to alleviate information overload.
  • Not “cool video” that whizzes by. (Video should only be used forensically).
  • We utilize best methods for knowledge retention.
