Strategies for Safety Training…Creating Effective Training for Adults

April 2, 2014 at 9am Pacific / 11am Central / Noon Eastern

Meeting Description       Details

Workers in "high risk" industries such as mining, oil and gas, or construction can be difficult to train, even though safety training is both a legal and moral requirement for keeping them safe. While it is not the case that these workers are inherently riskier than others, it is likely that the work they do involves risks that they may have a higher tolerance for than other workers. A safety trainer must find ways to get their attention, keep their attention, and convince them to change risky behaviors. This presentation will provide insight in how to do just that.
