Online safety training is gaining prominence across all industries.
But why? And how should your company leverage this method of worker training?
Online training programs (also known as e-learning) is a great tool to get your workers engaged in learning to achieve certification across a myriad of Occupational Health & Safety topics and procedures.
The growth of smart phone use, along with a continued adaptation of digital communications within our society means that learning is changing. As we become familiar with working within a digital online structure, we quickly see the advantages that it offers.
According to research firm Technavio the online learning market is growing at a compound annual growth rate of 13%, and now with the introduction of COVID-19 on the world-stage, online learning is poised to accelerate as we look forward.
There are many short courses online that benefit administrators, workers, manager, and supervisors. These learning tools offer strong multimedia learning platforms where students are introduced to concepts through audio and visual curriculum with a basis on interaction to reinforce the learning. And, by leveraging the ultimate advantage of the digital environment, workers can complete the courses on their own time-schedule, one that minimizes the interruption of work on-hand. In traditional safety training situations a worker has to schedule months in advance, plan their travel, and take time off from work. These traditional courses are offered on some else’s schedule and at a location that is not always convenient. Now the courses can be done within time slots on their own terms, introducing a situation where workers are more likely to take the course on.
Training workers and supervisors is always a requirement to move forward in our safety conscious workplace. Traditional in-class training is difficult to fit into our busy work schedules.
The benefits of online training include:
- Courses can be taken any time that works with your schedule.
They are accessible anywhere the internet is available (using desktop, laptop, tablet, cell phone, etc.).
- These courses are often less expensive to take and even a better deal when you take into account there is no need to travel (mileage, hotels, meals).
- The course is always consistent. Every worker will receive the exact same content.
- Online courses require the student to listen and participate by administering quiz questions throughout the material, allowing a student to go back and re-watch areas they may have missed.
