Facilitated development of collaborative Cultural Awareness Training (CAT) package

Digital Learning

Cultural Awareness e-learning

Keogh Bay developed several Cultural Awareness e-learning modules for a primary health services provider across Western Australia.  The modules covered cross-cultural communication, historical events affecting Aboriginal people, knowledge of local cultural obligations, plus other topics.

Keogh Bay also developed a Cultural Awareness e-learning module for a mining service provider to help its staff interact with and relate to other cultures, so reducing potential cultural barriers and miscommunication.

Health and Safety

Keogh Bay designed several e-learning modules for a government organisation about the dangers of lead poisoning, heat awareness, and temperature checking tools.

Working with Indigenous Employees e-learning

This project involved creating an engaging e-learning course for a mining service provider focused on improving interactions between its leadership and Indigenous members.  The course used interactive video content to provide guidance on common workplace scenarios involving Indigenous employees.

Business Induction

Keogh Bay developed a company induction e-learning course for a mining service provider which used an online induction passport stamp system marking the completion of scenarios on topics like company values, code of conduct, safety, and its employees.
