Safety and Compliance Training: Reinforce Safety Training with Chatbots

Contents

Highlights

Coach Jesse is a chatbot designed by Aristocrat Technologies and Mobile Coach. The chatbot delievers a one-year safety coaching and reinforcement program in pieces that are easy to apply into daily routines.

  • 85% reduction in vehicle and medical incidents
  • 71% of users respond on average to each of Coach Jesse’s prompts
  • Coach Jesse received a Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Technology Silver Award in 2017 for Best Online Coaching Tools

Key Challenges

Aristocrat has a large, dispersed workforce of technicians who install and repair gaming machines. The business needs for this project were:

  • Fulfill regulatory requirements for safety training
  • Keep employees and customers safe
  • Help technicians to safely install increasingly complex machines in an
    environment in which we lack total control

“The Mobile Coach chatbot has been part of our culture change from a workforce that uses desktops, paper, and learns once and forgets it. The chatbot was key to changing to a mobile workforce that continuously learns and reinforces. Our safety numbers are up and accidents are down—that’s a success to me!”

The Solution

A Mobile Coach chatbot was chosen by the Aristocrat team because:

  • It offered flexibility for the technician to engage on their timeline
  • It provided a frictionless user experience, chatbot easily integrated into technicians existing digital habits
  • Aristocrat is transitioning to more digital and mobile learning
  • It scaled to technicians throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico

Aristocrat partnered with Mobile Coach to create a chatbot named Coach Jesse to facilitate the safety and compliance reinforcement. Jesse followed up with safety alerts, reminders, and supplemental materials. Jesse’s main goals were to:

  1. Change behavior by reinforcing safety training
  2. Engage a remote workforce
  3. Bring safety to the front of mind

Design

Coach Jesse delivers a one-year safety coaching and reinforcement program via SMS. Despite being a chatbot, Coach Jesse was designed to have a personality making the experience feel natural and personal. Coach Jesse is a powerful learning tool who messaged bi-weekly with a tip, a question, a quiz, and a sense of humor. 

Each interaction involves Coach Jesse focusing on a topic, such as electrical safety, at the macro level with a question to test understanding. After a user response, Coach Jesse gives feedback including resources on the best method.

  • Helped reduce vehicle and medical incidences from 21 annually to 3
