Seriously No Yawns Here. Most Engaging Safety Talks Ever.

Find Out More

There is a time and a place. Let's talk about robots and technology for a moment. You have people on one side worried that they will be replaced by a robot. Then you have people on the other side who are so excited to have a robot in their house. I would say there is even a third side where people are scared that robots are always listening but let's not get into that. 

 

There is a time and a place for a robot. Think about smart thermostats, light bulbs, and locks. All smart robots. They don't have arms and feet so you might not think of them as a robot but they are so convenient and make life easier. 

 

There is a time and a place. 

 

This is similar to online training. There is a time and a place for it. EHS Today says more than 50% of workers are not engaged. They highlight that safety provides an opportunity to engage workers and that the single, most effective way to engage them is with monthly safety meetings (source).  You can not fully eliminate the benefits of in person training. However, you can minimize the need to pull everyone into a room every week.

 

On top of monthly meetings to engage your employees you have to have a safety culture. Here are 5 reasons to explain, "why is a safety culture is a necessity."

 

1. Unifies workforce thinking and understanding of the importance of safety.

Start off the workday by discussing current safety concerns or new safety training.

 

2. Promotes shared values in safety. 

At your regularly scheduled meetings, discuss with your employees what values should be shared throughout the company and how to enforce them.

 

3. Encourages open, honest, and frequent feedback.

Make it easy for employees to report their concerns by providing opportunities for them to schedule one-on-one time with a supervisor or manager.

 

4. Creates an environment for early detection of hazards.

Stress the importance of potential hazard awareness and periodically reviewing incidents that could have been avoided with proper training.

 

5. Strengthens accountability.

Try understanding what went wrong. Addressing the problem shows that you are more concerned with the resolution and safeguarding from future occurrences.

 

So don't delay! You know why and even some little tips on how. To keep the safety culture love going, here is a free eBook on safety culture.

"Ving Understands What Safety Managers Need to Improve Training"

One of the biggest problems I've had with safety training platforms is making the training easily accessible on mobile job sites, making it easy to upload in-house training, and technical issues with outdated software. All of those problems have been solved by Ving. It's well-thought-out and easy-to-use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the QR code option. For example, you can print a QR code sticker that explains how to inspect fire extinguishers and post it next to the extinguisher so anyone doing monthly inspections isn't guessing based on training that was six months ago. They can review the training immediately.
