The Opportunity

NOVA Chemicals had been experiencing issues with its in-line blind training. The PowerPoint presentation and manufacturer-provided documentation were not effectively communicating the proper and safe method of swinging a blind and it had several recorded incidents that justified changes.

NOVA identified this as an opportunity to engage their learners and chose interactive procedure-based eLearning rather than the detail-heavy technical usage manuals.

The Solution

Working closely with NOVA SME’s, we developed an interactive course delivered on our ProcessLMS™ learning management system. It features engaging content presented with video demonstrations of procedure steps, operator interviews, incident reviews, and 3D animations of blind mechanics.

Knowledge checks and an interactive activity ensure that operators understand the technical information needed to perform the task, are aware of the associated hazards, and know the order of operations to swing a blind safely and efficiently.

The Result

More than 85% of NOVA Chemical’s operators have completed the course. NOVA has been very pleased with these results and plans more eLearning projects with us in the future.

The “In-Line Blinds Operator Training” earned a Bronze International Telly Award for training.
