We’re Only Human 37: Taking a Different Approach to Safety Training

July 3, 2018 12:52 pm

Safety training is boring. It’s blah. It’s a waste of time and resources. Right? Or is it the foundation for creating a workplace where employees can thrive? As you’ll hear during the show, the cost of safety training can top $200,000 per year for many firms when you factor in all of the associated costs. Yet we don’t do a good job of making sure that investment pays off.

In today’s discussion, Ben talks with Rick Tobin, CEO of SafetyNow, about various aspects of learning and development. The discussion covers topics like retention of critical knowledge, how to use a learning management system to simplify training delivery, and why safety training is more than just a passive session in front of a DVD player.
