This train-the-trainer course for safety trainers will:
- Provide participants with the skills they need to “sell” the importance of safety to those they are training.
- Review best practices in adult learning and the importance of designing and delivering content with them in mind.
- Suggest dozens of active-learning techniques safety trainers can use to engage their students.
- Offer strategies for promoting a culture of safety.
Whether instructing on OSHA compliance, safety equipment, or safe workplace practices, the safety trainer has a critical role in promoting a culture of safety and preventing accidents and errors before they occur. This course is designed for both experienced and new safety trainers. During the workshop, participants will learn how to design and deliver content in such a way that their sessions adhere to best practices in adult learning. They will also discover how to incorporate stories, add variety, use assessments, and create video clips for their workshops and post-training follow-up activities.
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Explain training’s role in creating a culture of safety.
- Demonstrate how to generate learner buy-in.
- Follow best practices in adult learning.
- Develop engaging activities around any safety topic.
- Demonstrate how to deal with difficult participants.
- Deliver the same content in several ways.
- Use video, PowerPoint, audio clips, and models effectively.
- Measure what a group already knows, what they’ve learned, and whether they are using those skills back on the job.
- Surface behavioral gaps that are not due to training deficiencies.
- Create post-training job aids.
