Employers today recognize that the safety orientation for a newly hired employee is more than just a requirement – it’s the right thing to do. But are we sending the right message when we label this investment as “workplace safety training”? What do statistics tell us about injury and fatality away from work when compared to rates on the job? And does our workplace training program mirror what we have learned about the difference between the two rates? With this powerful Webinar, learn how to extend the scope of your workplace safety orientations. You’ll receive best practices that will not only improve the quality of your safety orientations but will also transform them into training programs that will help to safeguard employees around the clock.
By the end of this Webinar, participants will learn:
- The magnitude of unintentional injuries and deaths which occur in the United States today, and how those totals are divided by workplace, home and community, and highway
- How these injuries and deaths should align with the focus of workplace safety orientations
- How injuries and fatalities that occur off the job impact workplace productivity, financial cost and morale
- How to use resources to revise existing workplace safety orientations into a 24/7 safety training programs
- How to expand a new-hire orientation, with minimal cost and effort, to include similar hazard training on areas away from work where injury incidents occur, often with higher frequency
- How employees might use this information to minimize the likelihood of injury or death to themselves and family members
