Our digital training approach with personal logins ensures that common social standards are understood and are therefore applied continuously in everyday work. The eLearning courses were developed and tested through rigorous user testing and the involvement of various stakeholders.
Having a workforce with knowledge of social standards and labor rights and obligations is also essential in order to put an effective grievance mechanism or whistleblower system in place, as required by legislation in processing plants throughout the whole supply chain.
We have developed our courses based on the topics that are most relevant to factories in the global supply chain. These are the topics where non-compliance is most frequently identified. We have considered ESG criteria and standards such as OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001 and SA8000 as well as current legislation in the area of sustainability/CR.
Currently this primarily relates to the social pillar of sustainability, in particular occupational health and safety and human rights, as this affects the entire workforce, not just management or individual departments. So far we have covered fire safety and hazards, health and hygiene, and human rights with a focus on anti-discrimination and communication.
Awareness of these issues throughout the whole workforce is also the basis for a functioning grievance mechanism.
A course lasts 6 weeks, with one login per week, with a limited duration of 15 minutes. Thanks to a special learning algorithm, the content adapts to each user’s learning progress. Using the principle of spaced repetition, content is repeated depending on the learning success.
A KPI dashboard with numerous indicators makes training progress visible in real time (monitoring) and displays results anonymously.
Fire safety & hazards
Our course "Fire safety & hazards" focuses on fire safety and hazards and aims to create awareness, change attitudes and integrate the newly acquired knowledge into day to day factory life. It leads to a safer working environment and helps to avoid fire incidences and reduces the negative effects of workplace injuries.
Occupational health & hygiene
Our course “Occupational Health & Hygiene” aims to minimise work-related injuries and health risks, to increase capacities to work safely and effectively, and to enhance overall workplace wellbeing. Undertaking this course will be a preventive and protective mechanism to establish workplace health and hygiene, and also to reduce the spread of contagious diseases and infections such as Covid19.
Worker engagement & reporting grievances
Our course “Worker engagement & reporting grievances” is designed to empower workers on how to communicate needs, distresses and opinions and trigger their own solution-oriented thinking. Undertaking this course will be a preventive and protective means to establish a peaceful and respectful workplace environment. It is also the precondition for a functioning grievance mechanism, which is also required by German and EU legislation.
What are features of our eLearning platform?
In contrast to traditional eLearning, everyday-relevant content is presented in small bite-sized units relevant to day-to-day factory life.
With the help of a special algorithm based on the didactic principle of spaced repetition, the learning content of our training app is adapted to the current learning progress. Each user has their own personal content.
Sustify would like to reach everybody, including those who are illiterate as well as those who do not have access to a smartphone. To do this, we use image-based learning and short texts with audio functionality. Learning is accessible via a QR code and is provided on tablets.
We use interactive game formats. Learning not only takes place in a multiple-choice format, but by means of active on-screen actions which encourage problem solving.
For the purposes of sustainability reporting within the scope of the Supply Chain Act, our solution provides you with an evaluation module (KPI dashboard) which analyses demographic data and anonymized learning progress, and enables continuous monitoring.
Our digital trainings for factory workers can be carried out in an uncomplicated way despite Covid19, because large groups are not trained at the same time, but individually via tablets in the training room. Social distancing is thus possible without any problems.
