Introducing the BOOM Safety Training Game

Many industries experience hazards from combustible dust including food, plastic, wood, rubber, furniture, textiles, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, dyes, coal, metals, additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and fossil fuel power generation. When providing training on combustible dust, trainees learn about the five elements of a dust explosion and collecting these five elements are the basis of a new game - BOOM. 

In this downloadable packet, teams of trainees take turns answering questions related to combustible dust explosions. Every time they answer correctly, they get to award one of five BOOM cards to another team. The five BOOM cards each represent one side of the dust explosion pentagon, so when a team has been given all 5, BOOM - and they are out.  This game is based on game mechanics and is a type of sneaky quizzing. Trainees are reviewing important safety content while having fun.

While FUN can have a number of benefits in organizations, the workplace is no place for pranks. Co-workers may want to joke around with their friends, especially on April Fool's Day but it is important to have a policy at work to guide individuals on what is appropriate and what is not. You should definitely consult Human Resources professionals and/or Legal Counsel when creating your policy.
