GSD - Preventing dog bites

How it works:

The Dog Safe Workplace provides your organisation with a link to your unique online training course. The link is then provided to each user who creates their own personal login based on their email.

As the participant moves through the course they will be required to view a variety of photographs and videos accompanied by descriptive text. This is completed over a series of modules. At the end of every module is a “checkpoint” where they will be required to answer a series of questions. They need to achieve 100% to move forward in the course. Should they answer a question incorrectly they can review the module and start the checkpoint again. This can be done as many times as they require.

A monthly report (or a period of time requested by your organisation) can be sent to the company administrator. This shows who has completed the course, for those who have started the course it will show where they are up to, what percentage of the course they have done, how many attempts it took to pass each checkpoint and the result of each checkpoint.

For those who have completed the course they can request a certificate to be sent to them via email.

There is also a downloadable tip sheet that they can print out and keep with them as a reminder of behaviours to look for when on premises with dogs.
