What is safety training and how to implement it for your organization?

Workplace Safety Training

Factories, workshops, and other hazardous areas can be dangerous places for visitors. Even if they are familiar with the general safety procedures, they may not be aware of the specific hazards that exist in a particular facility.

This is why it is important to show workplace safety training videos to visitors before they enter these areas to ensure the effectiveness of the training with the employees.

  2. Outlining the proper procedures for using machinery and equipment
  3. Perceive the importance of wearing personal protective equipment (PPE)
  4. Determine the location of emergency exits and procedures

De-risking of the workplace

By watching a workplace safety training video, visitors can better understand the risks involved in visiting a factory or workshop and learn how to stay safe. This can help to prevent accidents and injuries.

It can also help to protect the facility from liability. It is often a mandatory practice as a part of Fire Safety and HSE Compliances that are applicable for the facility.

Benefits of using safety training videos for visitors in the workplace

  1. They are more effective at communicating safety information than text-only materials, as they use a variety of visual and auditory cues
  2. They can be tailored to the specific hazards of a particular facility.
  3. They can be reused multiple times, which saves time and money.
  4. They can be made available online, which makes them convenient for visitors to watch.

Methods to incorporate safety training

  1. Having a dedicated safety training room where visitors can watch the video. This is a good option if the facility receives many visitors or if the videos are long or complex.
  2. Making the videos available online. This option is convenient for visitors who cannot visit the facility in person.
  3. Providing visitors with a copy of the video to watch at their own pace. This is a good option if the videos are short or simple.

Additional tips

  1. Have clear signage at the entrance to the facility that explains the importance of safety and where to find safety information.
  2. Assign a staff member to greet visitors and answer their questions about safety.
  3. Monitor visitors’ behaviour and intervene if they are not following safety procedures.
  4. Provide visitors with PPE if it is required.
  5. Have a plan for dealing with emergencies.
