Training Your Workers
Teaching your workers how to safely perform their tasks has always been difficult. Many workers are hired already having received training from previous employers or the union they belong to. However, employers shouldn't rely solely on external training. You definitely want to conduct some of your own training so that workers are educated on how things are to be done at your company. Some types of training that employers will often conduct include:
- New hire orientations
- Fall protection
- OSHA 10 Hour
- OSHA 30 Hour.
These would be in addition to task-specific training. For example how to use certain equipment or perform certain techniques. Some cities and states, like New York, for example, have their own requirements in terms of what training certifications must be attained by workers before they are allowed to work on any site.
Problems With Training
Requires hiring outside experts to create training materials
Actual training performed isn't consistent with every worker
Hard to track certifications every worker holds
Training material is boring or incomplete
Instructors aren't engaging when delivering training
Training materials aren't easily accessible
Unless your company has a dedicated full-time training department, you've likely experienced some or all of the issues listed above. Even if you do have dedicated training resources they're often using outdated tools like PowerPoint decks, PDF documents, and spreadsheets to manage everything. There's a better way. The Harness safety app allows companies of all sizes to create their own catalog of custom training courses. Workers can take pre-recorded training on their smartphone or computer at home or participate in an instructor-led live training course. All via Harness. Getting new hires trained up or enhancing the skills of your long-tenured workers has never been easier.
