PREBUILT TRAINING MODULES

Interactive safety training

Modules Overview

Tap Into Safety’s prebuilt safety training modules are developed using industry best practice. The panoramic scenes are examples of typical work environments and draw on hazards pertinent to the scenes. The simple URL integration enables use within your current Safety Induction and Workplace Safety Training.

We are regularly adding new modules, but if you are looking for a customised module please contact us to discuss.
