How do you make sure others know what you need them to know, when you need them to know it?
When workers aren’t properly trained on workplace hazards and appropriate safety protocols, your business is at risk. Consequences can include higher rates of workplace incidents, escalating DART rates, workers’ compensation costs, lost time and productivity, and hefty fines from regulatory bodies such as OSHA, Health Canada, HSE and EU-OSHA national focus points.
Confirming employees are familiar with the hazards they will encounter in the workplace and are armed with the information they need to handle it properly is a daunting job, especially when you’re dealing with a large number of employees across multiple locations and departments. You know what needs to be conveyed, but are stifled by your training options.
One-on-one training methods are expensive and time-consuming. Classroom-style training on its own is often inefficient and negatively impacts employee productivity; plus, all of the effort and expense doesn’t always translate to desired outcomes. Yet, effective training is a core compliance requirement at the heart of most regulatory standards, and one of the best ways to avoid preventable workplace incidents. For companies trying to get beyond compliance and striving for operational excellence, failure to train is not an option — and that means you must overcome this challenge.
