    PUZZLES HELP DELIVER HEALTH RISKS AWARENESS

    Innovative puzzle products supplier extends the range of training aids

    Puzzle supplier Ethentic specialise in the design and manufacture of health and safety knowledge checking puzzles for use as teaching aids.

    The puzzles are designed to guide learners into knowledge recall of a particular fact or subject area and can be used individually or with groups of learners as a challenge “Who can complete the puzzle first?”

    The knowledge checking puzzles designed to support the delivery of CITB Site Safety Plus and NEBOSH courses have been extended with the addition of three new products designed to enhance the learning experience. These are:

    • Asbestos awareness

    Designed to support the delivery of asbestos awareness courses and align with the learning outcomes, as laid out in L143 Managing and working with asbestos.

    10% of the proceeds from this puzzle are donated to charity, Mesothelioma UK which is a national resource centre dedicated to providing free specialist information, support and improved care and treatment.

    • Dust awareness

    Designed to support the delivery of dust awareness courses and align with established learning outcomes, as laid out on the HSE ‘Dust Hub’ web pages.

    10% of the proceeds from this puzzle are donated to charity, The Lighthouse Club which provides financial and emotional support to members of the construction community who have suffered an injury or long-term illness.

    • CDM 2015 General awareness

    Designed to support the delivery of CDM 2105 awareness courses and align with learning outcomes, as laid out in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 and Guidance on Regulations L153

    Benefit to trainers and learners

    Ethentic stress that learners retain more knowledge if they are enjoying a lesson which benefits both learner and the trainer. Studies have shown that the use of a range of teaching methods will increase both learner engagement and knowledge retention.

    The puzzles are designed to offer training providers a wider range of options for knowledge checking across many different subject areas.  In addition, the puzzles help to introduce an element of fun and competition into the learning environment, essential ingredients for an effective lesson.

    Each puzzle has a number of matching words, statements or numbers based on specific learning outcomes which need to be matched together correctly in order to complete. The finished puzzle forming a pre-determined shape e.g. a hexagon or triangle.

    Ethentic consult with highly experienced experts covering different disciplines at puzzle design stage to ensure puzzles meet specified learning outcomes.

    Use can include briefings and toolbox talks

    Ethentic manufacture puzzles for many different learning environments and have worked with organisations requiring knowledge checking of employees after the delivery of briefings or tool box talks.

    The puzzles can be used in many different ways to check on learning:

    • Knowledge – use a puzzle at the end of a lesson as a knowledge checking exercise against learning outcomes;
    • Retention – if you are delivering a subject which involves separate elements or modules, use earlier puzzles in later sessions to check knowledge retention;
    • Gaps – use the puzzles as a refresher exercise to identify strengths or weaknesses and plan your lessons accordingly; and
    • Confidence – if you have a group of learners completing a puzzle, it is easy for the trainer to observe and identify learners displaying subject matter confidence issues. This approach can save on the embarrassment of a learner not being able to answer a direct question for example.
