‘I was keen to update and improve our fire training and safety management,’ said Kaja Stern. ‘I saw a fantastic sample video by EVisuals and I knew that was the way to go.’
Kaja is Workplace Health and Safety Coordinator for Ramsay Healthcare’s John Flynn Private Hospital at Tugun on Queensland’s Gold Coast. With 72 hospitals around the country, Ramsay Healthcare is Australia’s largest private hospital operator and a respected sector leader.
‘I first heard about EVisuals from staff at another Ramsay hospital,’ said Kaja. ‘They were so impressed with EVisuals’ products and service that they recommended them to all Ramsay facilities.
‘Previously, we provided our staff with fire and evacuation training via an e-learning module – essentially a Powerpoint presentation – that people watched when they started their employment with us and every two years after that. Our Fire Wardens were re-trained every year.
‘But from our quarterly WHS audits, I knew that our staff’s retention of information from the training was very poor. For example, most people couldn’t even remember what the essential acronym RACE [Remove people from immediate danger, Alert others, Confine the fire and smoke, Extinguish or Evacuate] stands for.’
