    Mielenkiintoinen kurssi. Joka tuo lisää tietoa työskentelyyn työsuojeluvaltuutettuna

  • Toni


    välikokeiden "järjestä oikeaan järjestykseen" tehtävät voisi olla selkeämpiä kuten esimerkiksi riskin suuruus ja riskin merkitys meni helposti sekaisin

  • Antti


    Työsuojeluhenkilöiden vaaliasiaa käsiteltiin turhan paljon.

  • Jaanus


    Kiitos, oli todella hyvää kurssi.

  • Tanel


    Hyva kurssi! Kiitos!

  • Eero


    Kiitos hyvästä kurssista. Materiaali oli selkeästi ymmärrettävissä ja mukavasti toteutettu

  • Merja


    Harjoitus ja koetehtävässä voisi antaa ohjeistusta etukäteen, että vastauksissa voi olla useampi oikea vaihtoehto tai että vastausvaihtoehdoissa ei välttämättä ole yhtään oikeaa vaihtoehtoa.

  • Janne


    Materiaali olisi erittäin hyvä kun saisi käyttöön. Tulee niin paljon uutta asiaa ja kun näitä toteuttaa ei mitenkään muista kaikkea sekä hyviä vinkkejä materiaalissa.

  • Roope


    Mukava tapa hoitaa koulutus jossa ei tarvita suoranaista fyysistä paikalla olemista! Kiitos ja hyvät vkloput!

  • Esa


    Kurssin verkkototeutus on pääasiassa hyvä. Lukijan monotonisuus hieman häritsee sekä esityksen varsin pelkistetty ulkoasu puuduttaa. Voisi miettiä liikkuvaa kuvaa / animaatioita sekä jonkinlaista interaktiivisuutta kurssilaisen sekä kurssin välillä. Välitestit pitävät virkeänä, mikä on hyvä. Kokonaisuutena toimiva paketti.

  • Sakari


    Oma työpaikkani on pieni sosiaali ja terveydenhuoltoalan yksikkö, joten meillä aika vähän käytössä työkoneita. Osa koulutuksesta oli enemmän teollisuuteen kohdentuvaa asiaa.

  • jyri


    kohdassa mittarit olen itse tottunut näkemään laskentamallissa määreen TRIF kyseiselle kaavalle LTI:n olen yleensä kokenut huomioivan vakavuutta päivissä...

  • Heidi


    Koulutus oli mielestäni selkeä ja hyvä

  • Tuula


    Hyvä kurssi. Kiitos!

  • Hanna-Leena


    olisi hyvä, jos kertaamaan pääsisi jotain tiettyä täsmennettyä kohtaa. Itse tulkitsin, että jos haluaisin kerrata jotain, tulisi kerrata joko koko koulutus tai stten koko osio. Ei päässyt valtisemaan jotain tiettyä diaa, jonka olisi halunut katsoa uudelleen. Lisäksi olisi kiva saada jonkinlainen aineisto itselle koulutuksesta :)

  • Matti


    On mukava, ettei kyse ollut pelkästään luentodioista, vaan mukana oli myös ihmisääni.Olisin kaivannut vähän enemmän vaihtelevuutta ja tietotekniikan hyödyntämistä, nyt materiaali oli aika tasapaksua. Pääosin kuitenkin positiivinen kokemus. :)

  • Emmi


    Kurssi toimi hyvin jouhevasti ja oli miellyttävä suorittaa töiden ohessa.

  • Aki


    Selkeä opetusmateriaali.

  • Marinos


    Hei, minun mielestä jos jokaisessa osiossa näkyisi % luku suoritetusta jaksosta voi piristää vähän opiskelun :)

  • Tony


    Selkeä ja hyvin toteutettu kurssi. Vaikka itse pidän enemmän "lähiopetuksesta". Välikokeet hyvä juttu, koska muuten keskittyminen voisi helposti herpaantua.

  • kimmo


    hyvä kurssi. kaaviot vähän epäselviä

  • Sari


    2-kohdassa puhuttiin STM:n työsuojeluosastosta, joka on nykyään työ- ja tasa-arvo-osasto :)
