How do you make sure your people know what you need them to know, when you need them to know it?
We can all agree that when workers aren’t properly trained on workplace hazards and safe work practices, it puts your business at risk. Whether it's increased incidents and workers’ compensation costs, lost time and productivity or hefty regulatory penalties, the risks of poor or inadequate training are simply unacceptable.
Making sure your employees are armed with the information they need to work safely can be a tall order, and it's even more challenging when you’re dealing with a large number of employees spread across multiple locations and departments. Even with a solid understanding of who needs what training and when, scheduling and coordinating training sessions, delivering training content, documenting training completion and verifying that workers possess the right knowledge and skills can feel overwhelming.
Traditional, classroom-based training is often expensive, time-consuming, inefficient and can even negatively impact worker engagement and training retention. Yet, effective training is a core compliance requirement at the heart of most regulatory standards, and one of the most direct ways to create greater hazard awareness and avoid preventable workplace incidents. For companies trying to go beyond compliance and achieve operational excellence, failure to deliver effective training is simply not an option — and that means overcoming these training challenges.
