Worker safety is of utmost importance in the construction industry as having higher accident rates may break your firm’s reputation. Construction work is laborious and physically draining, however nobody’s life should be compromised. To ensure a safe working environment, your workforce should always be practising the relevant safety procedures and taking proper safety measures. Hence, regular training should be provided for many reasons, such as:
- Onboarding and orientating new workers
- Acknowledging changes made in the company’s safety procedures
- Learning to use a new equipment safely
How to create an effective training plan
1. Defining needs and objectives
A clear understanding of your agenda makes the planning easier as the purpose of training will become apparent. Identifying accident-prone situations or hazardous equipment will help ensure that the training will cover safety measures relevant to the site.
2. Do research
After Step 1, do the research to make sure your safety tips are relevant. Go through the entire plan and curate the safety procedures in every step of the construction process. Compile all the useful information before moving on to Step 3, the final step.
3. Design and present
With all your relevant information from Step 2, it’s time to put together your very own safety training module. Design your training to suit your workers and keep it interactive as engaging training may help your staff retain the information easier. Keep the training simple as most of your construction workers may not be as well-educated. Know your workers well, so you can train them effectively.
