Safety training is crucial to ensure the well-being of your employees and other team members, especially in high-risk industries such as aviation, manufacturing, mining, and logistics. Research indicates that safety training is vital for developing resilient occupational health and safety (OHS) management systems.
The problem is that safety training is boring.
All business leaders know that safety training will improve the quality of the workplace, the culture, and employees’ well-being while reducing overall risk. Clarity around operations, machinery and processes can fundamentally change how workers operate and environments thrive. Yet, the traditional training that goes hand-in-manual with safety protocols and processes can be dusty, dry and boring, making it difficult for people to understand and apply these concepts in real-world scenarios.
Organisations should look to creating safety as a skillset, one that can enhance careers and improve workplace experiences, rather than simply a mandatory process. This can be achieved through inspired learnerships that allow employees to engage with an advanced and adaptive learning platform that’s personalised and provides each person with a unique experience that connects with their learning style.
Up-to-date training platforms reinvigorate safety training by using a lighter tone that makes challenging topics more interesting, and by adding fresh elements that allow users to become more engaged with the process, such as:
- case studies,
- interactive elements,
- role-playing videos.
