Workplace Safety Training: Getting Better Results

It’s no secret that while workplace safety training is critically important there are many employers who view the actual training session as an inconvenient disruption to the workday. Training sessions can take workers off their jobs resulting in a costly loss of production time but also workers may be unfocused or distracted in the training sessions due to the work responsibilities they’re missing while taking the training. This distraction can result in the workers not properly retaining the safety training information being presented, creating a potentially dangerous workplace.

The solution is not longer training sessions or more extensive testing. The key is to make the training class time more effective. By making simple changes to the way the trainers present their information, the participants can then focus on the importance of the training and better understand that safe work practices don’t end when the training session is finished.
