Game-based learning

Effectively engaging the entire workforce on the topics of safety and risk is a challenge faced by many organisations. To address this, Risktec has developed a Game-based learning (GBL) offering to supplement our existing training courses.  The aim of GBL is to reinforce learning in a fun and memorable way to maximise the effectiveness of the training experience.

Risktec has produced a series of games which instil a fundamental understanding of key safety themes relevant to all industries. Each game uses a fun, everyday analogy or metaphor for a traditionally technical subject, making the training accessible to all. These games can provide an excellent practical activity during training which helps reinforce the safety message to trainees. When people participate in an interactive, hands-on activity, their retention of knowledge is significantly improved compared to simply listening to or reading a presentation.

The Games

Tipping Point

Everyday operational issues can be tough on your barriers against failure. Put your judgement and technical skills to the test, to see how well you can manage your facility and keep it from collapse.

This game illustrates the concept of defence in depth to prevent major accidents.


Spec your own private jet for the holiday of a lifetime! A lottery win means you can afford it all; on-board disco, pool table, the works! But when reality bites, can you afford what you really need to fly at all?

This game illustrates the concept of safety critical elements in the context of an aeroplane’s systems.

Plane Simple

Are your instructions first-class? Or do they leave you to wing it?

This game highlights the importance of clear operating instructions and communication.

GBL applicability

The games are suitable for any industry, however we can also create bespoke versions which are tailored to your organisation or industry.

If your organisation has a specific message to convey which is not covered by one of our existing games, we are happy to work with you to develop the right game for your needs – please contact us via our Training pages.
