Safety training has the reputation of being a dry subject, no matter what industry you are in. However, it is extremely important and should not be overlooked or rushed through!
To keep your employees engaged when discussing safety training, plan for ways to break down the discussion and encourage participation.
Making Safety Training Engaging – What To Know
At Advanced Consulting & Training, we offer a number of safety training courses that are both informative and engaging. Here are our best tips and tricks to help you make safety training more engaging:
Consider Different Learning Styles
Everyone learns and retains information differently, it is important to consider all three styles to properly train all employees. The three styles of learning are as follows:
- Auditory Learning – when somebody learns most effectively through discussion and speech.
- Tactile Learning – when somebody learns better from a more hands-on approach
- Visual Learning – when somebody learns better with the aid of visual prompts
When putting together a safety training plan, make sure your training has varying forms of communication. Your employees will enjoy the experience more if you use a variety of learning styles.
Just because the topic of conversation is important doesn’t mean you can’t use humour to help deliver the required information in a lighter manner. Humour has been proven to be an incredibly effective way to help deliver important information in a more digestible fashion. This will be a handy tool to have in order to make your safety training seminars well received.
Keep It Brief
Make sure when assembling your lesson plan for your safety training seminar, you make sure to keep your points brief and easy to understand. This way your employees will not lose interest during the discussion of any important topics. Taking the time to ensure the topics you cover are to the point will go a long way in your safety seminars’ overall success.
Utilize Senior Employees
For many workers, safety training can be extremely repetitive the longer you have been in your industry. This is why we have found one of the most effective ways to engage all employees in safety seminars is to utilize your veteran employees. Many of these employees will already have the proper knowledge of the safety protocols being discussed, so why not ask them to help lead the discussions? This way it guarantees that veteran employees are employing active listening, and will feel more engaged and interested in the material being discussed.
