Is your safety training lacking excitement? Are employees more concerned about what kind of donuts to choose from rather than the life saving information you’ll be providing?
Don’t feel bad, you’re not alone. The question is…would you like to change the response you get to your safety training?
Each year employers lose billions of dollars to employees missing work due to injuries, man-hours from missed work, and medical and legal costs.
Unfortunately, training is often viewed as an expense rather than an investment. The end result? Often, the training is boring and the message of safety doesn't get across.
But done correctly, proper training can increase employee morale - resulting in increased productivity, a reduction in injuries resulting in decreased worker compensation insurance premiums, and improved employee retention resulting in reduced human capital recruitment costs.
Remember - an employee that is not engaged in the training will not provide you with a satisfactory return on investment. The first step is to wake up your safety training program. Make your training come alive and you will keep your employees alive!
