Exposure scenarios training
Persuasive design e-learning to help industries comply with REACH
European Union (EU) regulations require the communication of chemical information throughout the supply chain – from the manufacturer and importer to downstream users. This complex information may be presented in exposure scenarios (ES’s)—an annex to a safety data sheet. In order to ensure that information in an ES is correctly communicated, the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme has developed an e-learning resource for industries that produce and sell chemical mixtures. We developed this software resource, which supports interactive learning. Our resource assists vocational learners with understanding EU regulations for exposure scenarios as they relate to handling chemicals. The results of our work may be used in the future to help improve the software itself and to develop new interactive learning resources.
