The Future of EHS Training Program Management
Presenter: Greg Duncan, EHS & Sustainability Expert, VelocityEHS
Workplace EHS training is arguably the most important step we can take toward preventing work-related injuries, illnesses and other negative safety outcomes. Simultaneously, EHS training is also essential to compliance with a broad range of health and safety standards. That’s why one of the fundamental roles of EHS professionals is to make sure that workers have the training they need, when they need it, so that they can work safely. That means having a formal, well-developed EHS training program.
Developing, implementing and maintaining a high-performance workplace EHS training program presents complex challenges. Recently, those challenges have been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, which is forcing many EHS professionals to not only reassess what training they must provide to their workers, but re-think how they will deliver workplace EHS training when physical distancing has become the “new normal.”
Whether it’s establishing training requirements, identifying workers’ training needs, developing the right training mix, scheduling and coordinating training sessions, tracking completion and evaluating program performance, training programs have a lot of moving parts.
Whether you’re new to training management or a seasoned EHS professional, this session will show you how to manage a highly effective workplace health and safety training program, and introduce key tools, strategies and concepts that will help you overcome training program management challenges.
