The Art of Mastering Safety
It is compulsory in many work places to ensure safety training is done for the staff.Human resource is always checking and upgrading on safety guides and manuals to ensure the workplace is a safe environment for work.Regular training gatherings are meant to be informing staff on the latest safety needs and also allows the firm to see if the set standards are being observed.Then what do the safety police in the firm have to do to make sure a session is fun and engaging?On the other hand, how does the firm ensure that the gatherings held for safety maintain a fun and engaging flow?
Inclusion of humor in the training when getting ready for it.People respond to humor and can sit for hours listening to a session to catch a humor break.Humor unquestionably is hands down quite a way to turn around a presumed boring session into lots of fun.
Have the team engage fully in the training and make it interactive rather than the lecture type norm.Inclusion of the team makes every participant feel useful and keeps them involved.Indeed a safety training session is guaranteed of being more engaging this way.
Games, competition and rewards are another way to keep fun alive during such a gathering.Fun is usually not a frequently used word with staff during the usual work hours.Competition in small doses in such a gathering is quite fun.Form teams and have staff compete to keep up with the training, ensure a reward is given for the winning teams, even though it is not a tangible reward, say something like leading in the next game or quiz session.Fun actually directly translates to games in most circles.During the safety training, set up a few games that can end up assisting in the training rather than reduce the importance.The end result being that the training is a lot more fun.
Making a video which can be used as a tool and can help the staff remain attentive and have fun as well.A training of any nature can never go wrong when using visual aids, a lot of information is put across rather than when there are none.
At the end of the training, carry out an open question and answer session as is usual in most trainings but ensure you follow it up with a review of the session, be it written or spoken.Staff have their own thoughts on what is fun and engaging and the reviews and feedback gathered at this juncture are very helpful in identifying the same for the safety trainings in the future.Assess the data collected and include it in the next planned training.Inclusion of the staff’s ideas and thoughts makes feel part and parcel of the firm.It is quite freeing for staff to know they are worthy of opinion that counts and the end result is getting sincerity in the consecutive sessions.
