Dear Colleagues,

 

Nationally we are looking for qualified, independent instructors who would be willing to work part time teaching safety courses that are specifically tailored to meet the identified needs of one of our clients.  While these instructors would have little autonomy with course content, they will have the flexibility to meet state and local regulations as needed.  The courses our client is currently interested in are:

 

  • Aerial Lift (Bucket Truck)
  • Ladder Use and Safety
  • Confined Space and Gas Detection
  • Excavation and Trenching
  • Forklift Safety-Powered Industrial Truck
  • Work Zone Safety
  • CPR / First Aid (No Certificate Needed – Review Only)

 

If you know of interested instructors please have them contact Fran@ussafety.us

Incentives can cause people to hide injuries and can undermine reporting badly! I would go very lightly with Incentives. That's just my viewpoint. They don't really go toward promoting a Safety Culture Christie.

Christie,
Online training can be effective for some. It gives them the ability to move at their own pace and to review points that are more confusing on a first read. What it lacks is the non-verbal feedback that lets me know that they really understand what they just read vs. being able to quickly answer from a multiple choice menu.

I always try to drop in on students taking any computer training to see if they have any questions and to discuss points that I feel are most critical. Having built a level of trust with them, they know that I will do my best to respond to their questions. I've even had a couple catch errors in a procedure that was missed in the most recent update.

Do you think online safety training is as effective as in-person, classroom-style training?

How can you make safety training more effective? http://bit.ly/bhhLhu

Hi All! Just wanted to recommend books by Aubrey Daniels that help in designing, developing, deploying, delivering, and duplicating (5D Process) successful recognition and incentive programs.
Comment by Mike Maloney on March 17, 2010 at 10:44pm
We didn't shut down for a meeting but made the supervisor write an incident report. We treated it the same as a 'real' incident. Our definition of near miss was one that, "under slightly different circumstances" would have resulted in serious injury or property damage. If you went to plant medical... it was followed up with a report.

Clinician stress and burnout related to user of the EHR

The introduction of the Electronic Health Record (EHR) has certainly brought about a major change in the way healthcare is administered in this vast country.EHR's have evolved in a big way from the time they first came to be used in a moderate way in the healthcare industry a few decades ago. From then on, although the push towards making all health records online has been on -and the US economy saves close to $80 billion a year on paper and other aspects -the rate of penetration of EHR has…See More
