“The employee feedback from our Safety Talks has been very positive. They like the option of audio and visual presentations – it makes them more engaged and interested, as opposed to just listening to a supervisor talk to them about safety. As a result, our employees are more aware of safety hazards and protocols.”

What problem are you trying to solve?

85% of safety managers think their meetings are not engaging. 76% of safety managers think employees are more interested in their phones than their safety message. SafetyNow ILT is the largest online library of compliant safety meeting kits – everything you need to deliver an engaging safety meeting on any topic in the click of a button.

Instructor-led training can be effective because it allows you to answer questions, resonate directly with employees, and highlight key safety hazards; it can also be low cost and on-demand, but instructor-led training is often delivered not with safety at its core, but more with a “check the box” mentality.

Giving your front-line supervisor compliant training that is succinct, impactful, and consistent can work wonders.

It isn’t as if you aren’t doing safety training – at least, you should be because it is legally required – but the reality is that 85% of safety managers think their meetings are not engaging.

Why?

Because they are using the same old safety training year after year and expecting it to stick.

It doesn’t.

The reality is that you get diminishing returns and you aren’t confident that your training is legally compliant, especially if it’s more than 2 years old.

SafetyNow ILT has the largest library of instructor-led safety training in North America that is always compliant, user-friendly and at your fingertips 24-7.

Are you getting through to your crew? Or are your safety training and compliance efforts falling on deaf ears? Break through to your crew by carefully evaluating these 10 common roadblocks to effectively provide safety training.

  1. They Really Can’t Hear You 

There’s nothing more frustrating than to deliver what you think is a clear message only to have it ignored. It’s as if the trainee doesn’t hear you. In fact, maybe he doesn’t. Do you mumble? Are you dealing with an employee with hearing loss? When explaining procedures, speak slowly, loudly and clearly. And make sure trainees are literally able to hear them.

  1. You’re Speaking Greek

Don’t assume your students understand more than they do. Define any words which may be unfamiliar. Give them all the information you can. If you’re not sure how much background knowledge they have, you can say something like, “This may be familiar to you, but let’s go over it again.”

  1. They Hear the Message but Don’t Understand the Reason

Many trainees want to know not just what but why. This is especially true if you’re trying to get them to adopt a change in procedure or technique. Explain the purpose behind the change. Otherwise, trainees may not accept the change and do things the same way they always have.

  1. They Don’t Appreciate the Stakes Involved

Before explaining a safety procedure, point out the hazard involved. It makes a lot more sense to wear protective gloves when you know about flesh melting chemicals.

  1. Your Jokes are Garbling the Message

Humor can be an important tool in training. But you don’t want to overdo it. If you kid around too much, it may be harder for trainees to tell when you are serious. Don’t hide behind jokes when delivering difficult messages. Your audience might not get the point.

  1. You’re Not Listening to Their Questions and Concerns

Give your trainees lots of chances to ask questions. You can gauge the level or understanding by what they ask. Never laugh at questions. Respect your trainees and help bolster their confidence. If there are no questions, don’t assume everything is understood. Trainees may have nothing to ask because they don’t understand what you were talking about.

  1. You’re Not Tailoring Your Message to Who They Are

Differences in literacy levels and culture may make it difficult for you to communicate with your trainees. Be sensitive to these differences and look for ways to bridge them.

  1. You’re Not Testing Their Comprehension

A big mistake trainers make is assuming that the message has been comprehended without verifying it. Ask the group to repeat the message back to you. “Okay now what is the procedure for disposing of oily rags?”

  1. You’re Relying Too Heavily on the Spoken Word

Different people have different learning styles. Some need to hear. Some need to see. Others need to experiment hands-on under your supervision. Still others won’t learn a thing until they get their hands on a training manual. Most need a combination of these methods.

  1. You’re Not Anticipating Obstacles

There may be roadblocks to following your instructions. Force of habit and uncertainty about what is expected are common ones. Maybe the trainee doesn’t have the tools, equipment or procedures to follow through on what you said. Look at things through the trainee’s eyes and try to anticipate these difficulties.

There will never be a one-size-fits all solution that guarantees 100% of your training participants will take away every nuance of your safety training efforts. However, following best practices and making an effort to avoid these 10-common pitfalls will help you to develop more consistent and effective safety training efforts.

In order for your safety training to be compliant, it has to be delivered in the method and language understood by the learner. The focus is on the employee’s needs, not the trainers.

Because of this, we make most of our training available in English, French and Spanish.

Of course, we can translate all of the material for your specific needs.

Training employees should not be a one-time procedure. It should be a fundamental part of the organizational development process. Over time, employees may forget certain safety measures that they need to follow, which is why workplaces must implement periodic re-training sessions to keep employees up to speed. To prevent accidents and injuries, workers may need industry-specific training.

Continuously educating workers is only part of the training process. Solid training will include a thorough workplace approach that starts from the top to secure workplace culture and an understanding of expectations. Here are three ways to hold worker attention, support, and sustain training regularly. 

  • Screen Workers: Take the time to interview candidates and talk about safety. Ensure they have what it takes to deliver quality work that will benefit the company.
  • Signs and Labels: Place signs and labels throughout the office and workspace. This provides a simple solution to ensuring everyone who steps foot in there is safe. There are safety signs for almost every hazard, such as authorized personnel signs, caution signs, high voltage signs, and gas storage labels. Custom create messages that are unique to the facility.
  • Invest in Tools: Keep employees safe by being fully equipped with the necessary tools, including personal protective equipment. For example, an electrical line crew in Arizona uses a video camera on its bucket lift for extra safety so that the supervisor down below can view the work from his phone. Put in place emergency equipment and call lines. Additionally, make sure tools, equipment, and vehicles receive regular maintenance, cleaning, and inspections.

Part of putting safety first in the workplace is ensuring preventative measures are set. Securing safety from the start increases productivity, improves satisfaction, and can help prevent any legal or compliance complications. Continuous training is a cost-effective and excellent preventative measure that pairs well with support systems such as 5S and total productive maintenance. Use signs, labels, and floor marking as part of safety upkeep and to remind workers of the steps they need to take to maintain their part of safety. These habits will decrease risks and improve the workplace overall.

The proven tools in SafetyNow ILT make it simple to consistently make every safety meeting more engaging. No wonder that our members find their training is 60% more consistent, 52% more effective, and experience a 35% reduction in their accident & incident rates in their first year.
