A well-thought out and implemented workplace safety training program has benefits far beyond a reduction in workplace injuries. With fewer injuries comes fewer worker’s compensation claims, meaning less paperwork and lower insurance premiums. Worker morale improves in a safe environment and workplace productive increases.
These are all excellent reasons for establishing your own training program, even without the many legal reasons for doing so. Building a program from scratch, however, can seem overwhelming. While it requires a significant time commitment, creating a safety training program follows the same simple steps whether your work environment is a small manufacturing plant, a software developing company, or a large construction site.
The following infographic shows a six-step process in designing and implementing a workplace safety program. Although safety training is an important facet of workplace safety, it doesn’t cover all the bases in securing workplace safety at your facility. It is actually part of a bigger picture safety culture, in which employees adhere to, and respect safety procedures (and actively incorporate safety into their job tasks).
