4 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO PRESENT OSHA TRAINING TO YOUR STAFF

We all know that OSHA training is not anyone’s bucket list or even to-do list. The topics covered can seem boring or unnecessary. Even the best “students” have a difficult time paying attention and really grasping the information. Since OSHA training is important for the health and safety of your facility, it is very important. But how to do make your employees pay attention? How do you make sure they understand the information being presented to them through the training? 

Here are 4 effective ways to present OSHA training to your staff.

PROVIDE HANDS-ON TRAINING SESSIONS BASED ON OSHA TRAINING
Not everyone learns the same. There are those who are visual learners and those who are auditory learners. However, the majority of us are hands-on learners meaning that we don’t fully comprehend until we do it ourselves.

Try setting up role-playing scenarios with your staff. Being able to put the things one has just learned into action is proven to help with retention. You can also set up round-table discussions. Just by simply talking about the training, many will be able to understand the information better.

GIVE NEEDS BASED ASSESSMENTS PRIOR TO OSHA TRAINING
Your employees all have different backgrounds and different experiences they bring with them when they start working. In fact, many will come in with years of previous OSHA training under their belt. Why make your entire staff takes the same training? Sure, you could argue that repetition is good and can help with remembering small details.

Instead, try learning about your employees and what they already know about OSHA and staying compliant. You can give them a needs-based assessment at the beginning. This will tell you what they truly understand, what areas need improvement, and where to focus your future training.

KEEP OSHA TRAININGS SHORT
No one likes to be bored for hours on end. Instead of taking in the information, many just sit there counting the tiles on the floors or thinking of what they will cook for dinner.

Keep OSHA training short and to the point. The information will be easy to comprehend and employees are more likely to remember it when needed.

CREATE A FUN ATMOSPHERE SURROUNDING OSHA TRAINING

When dealing with such a dull and tedious topic, it’s easy to do only do what needs to be done to meet the requirements. In order to make OSHA trainings a little more fun and exciting, try creating a reward system or creating a competition among your employees. Choose teams, ask questions, and give points. Your staff will stay on their toes in order to be the winner and reap their rewards.

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then it’s important that you know what questions to ask before hiring a biomedical waste removal company.

Here are some of the top questions to ask and to help you get started.
