Health and safety training and communication is generally ineffective… there we’ve said it.
How many of us have sat through a classroom session where we’ve been bombarded with hundreds of PowerPoint slides that outline rules, procedures and policies? And how many of us can remember anything we’ve been told more than an hour or two later? More importantly, has it changed our behaviour in a meaningful and sustainable way?
This is serious. In the last year of published data, the HSE reported 111 employees killed and 693,000 injured at work and 38.8 million working days were lost due to work-related injury and illness.
Effective health and safety training and communications has to improve and change from a ‘sheep-dip’ process into something where we build true conviction and engagement. We have to recognise that, as adults, we learn and communicate differently to the traditional classroom techniques that most health and safety training and communication is based on.
On 18th February, The Big Picture People are running a free webinar called ‘Transforming Health & Safety Communication and Training’.
During the webinar, you will find out how leading organisations such as Calor Gas, Tesco, Allied Bakeries, Bilfinger and Reckitt Benckiser (RB) are making health and safety training and communications something that employees actively and enthusiastically participate in.
You’ll understand how to win “hearts and minds” by developing a health and safety learning culture that shifts from “compliance” to “conviction”.
You will find out how you can add a new dimension to health and safety education and communication, helping you to raise awareness of health and safety within your organisation and supporting the development of a behavioural based safety culture.
