Allen Interactions, a development and strategic consulting firm of e-learning and blended learning solutions, has partnered with Operation Lifesaver, a national, non-profit safety education group, to create an interactive e-learning course that focuses on truck driver safety at railroad crossings.
The course, Operation Lifesaver's Railroad Safety for Professional Drivers e-Learning Challenge, provides a simulated driving environment allowing drivers to work independently, exposing them to worst-case scenarios requiring quick thinking and critical decision-making at railroad crossings.
“Our goal as we launch this new safety program is to ensure every CDL driver has the information they need to safely cross a highway-rail grade crossing, every single time,” said Helen M. Sramek, president, Operation Lifesaver. Since June 9, the company said, about 15,000 truck drivers have completed this e-learning challenge, with the goal of reaching 100,000 drivers by the end of this year.
The e-learning course is available to the public and is only 15 minutes long.
