keynote Session 14: Techniques for Safety Training Retention

With all of the hours that many safety professionals spend on developing and delivering safety training, it is important to make sure that the content and delivery is designed so that trainees pay attention, interact, and remember most of the material presented. In this session we will discuss how to approach these three key factors so that safety training is the most effective it can be. Getting trainees to pay attention is the first step in getting them to learn the information being presented. We will cover the effective use of technology, image-based safety training, and personalized content as ways to increase trainee attention. Having trainees actively participate in their own learning through class interaction is the next key step in making training stick. We will discuss a variety of methods to add meaningful interaction to all safety training classes with special attention given to appropriate types of interaction for different kinds of audiences. The use of safety training games and activities will be covered as well as ways to customize them for any topic. Finally, we will review keys ways to help trainees to remember more of what they learn long after they leave the classroom.

Time and money is wasted when trainees forget everything they learned and thus fail to apply their new knowledge back on the job. When training isn't memorable, it often has to be repeated and can lead to poor productivity, mistakes in the workplace and confusion when it's necessary to follow important safety procedures.
