According to BLS 2014 workplace fatality preliminary data, on about 8 million worksites around the nation, on an average, almost 90 employees a week or more than 13 workplace deaths per day occurred in 2014.
This appalling statistic shows the unfortunate scenario of workplace injuries. One of the reasons that might contribute to this plight could be the ineffectiveness of safety training imparted by the organizations to its employees. Why the safety training though delivered by the organizations might not be effective enough? More often than not employees aren’t enthusiastic to receive safety training and view it only as an obligatory requirement that doesn’t need to be fulfilled. The online safety training courses might not be designed keeping in mind the needs of the learners which might be another reason contributing to this scenario.
So what should organizations do in order to make their online safety training programs effective? The safety training courses should be engaging and fun along with being informative. They need to be optimized by taking into consideration the learner needs and designed accordingly. Effective safety training not only ensures employee safety but also shows the employees that the management cares about their welfare, reduces the costs of injuries and accidents, and reduces the asset damage.
