This presentation was given at several conferences we attended and we think it is perfect for anyone who is involved in safety at your company. This can be your safety trainer, director, or even an owner.
Current methods of safety training are lagging behind changes in employee learning styles. The approach and delivery are outdated and inadequate. They do not meet the expectations employers have around employees retaining information and avoiding injury. It is time to wake up, shake it up and modernize your safety program. This session provides information about why training methods require modernizing and how to accomplish this task in your safety trainings.
1. Recognize why you must modernize and align your traditional safety training needs with today's learning styles.
2. List specific steps and ideas to modernize your approach to safety training.
3. Identify third party resources and factoids to support the direction of change.
4. Recall examples and case studies of employer and employee experiences as a result of the change.
Still not convinced you need a modern safety training program? Are you thinking, "who cares about the facts and trends?" Well your employees do! The more engaged your workers are with safety training the less money you will shell out when someone gets hurt.
If OSHA comes in and sees that your accident was really that, an accident, odds are they will probably give you a lower fine. Now this is not saying they will give you a lower fine and we will never claim that safety training prevents all accidents but what we are saying is that if you take the time to engage your employees with modern safety training you will see a phenomenal difference in your safety culture and engagement with training.
