Are you looking for ways to improve workplace safety and morale? Have you considered online safety training for your employees? Read on to discover the benefits of online safety training for your employees.
Online safety training not only ensures that employees know how to avoid potential injuries, but can also teach them about workplace safety policies and procedures. In addition, it can provide employees with the resources they need to stay safe on the job, with the ability to study when they are prepared to, making them more receptive to the information contained in the training course.
There are many benefits of safety training for employees. By increasing employee awareness of their surroundings and taking steps to prevent accidents, safety training can help to keep workers safe and healthy. Training may also improve communication among co-workers and help them work together as a team. In fact, studies have shown that workplaces with effective safety and health programs are less likely to experience accidents or injuries (Cleveland et al., 2002; Pratt & Barnett, 1999).
Despite these benefits, many employers still do not offer formal safety training programs. According to a study conducted by the National Safety Council (NSC), nearly 60 percent of companies did not offer any type of safety training program in 2007 (National Safety Council
[NSC], 2012). This reluctance is likely due in part to the high cost associated with such programs. However, despite this expense, research shows that investing in safety training can be worthwhile. For example, one study found that for each dollar spent on injury prevention programs, employers save an estimated $4 in costs related to compensation claims (see NSC ). Therefore, if you want your employees to stay safe on the job – and protect your business from costly mistakes – it is important that you provide them with formal safety training programs.
