The top 5 things getting in the way of effective safety training and how every company can overcome those challenges.
According to the survey, here are the most common challenges that safety professionals encounter, which we can confirm from personal experience, and how Weeklysafety.com can make your job easier…
KEEPING THE MESSAGE FRESH
We can’t keep the crews’ attention if they feel like they’ve heard the message a thousand times.
While repetition is important, it doesn’t have to be the same safety topic every time – that will only guarantee it’s in one ear and out the other.
All of our training topics started as a blank sheet of paper, so it’s not the same boring fact sheets that have been passed around for years.
Our training topics are easy to understand and engaging.
LANGUAGE AND LITERACY BARRIERS
Not everyone on our teams speak the same language, or maybe they know enough English to get by, but that’s not great for getting your safety training message heard.
All training at Weeklysafety.com has been professionally translated into Spanish so all your crews receive the same high-quality training.
Have a need for training in another language? Let us know!
In addition, all our safety topics are loaded with high-resolution photos. Free topics are just words. Someone with limited literacy can still get the message if the safety topic has great real-world photos (not cartoons!). Just because someone can't read that great doesn't mean they aren't the best man for the job!
Come on, we’re friends here, we can admit to ourselves, safety training can be boring!
Our training is written by safety professionals who have had enough of boring, ineffective safety topics.
We use high-resolution photos, true incident news stories and relevant statistics to make sure the message sticks.
Deadlines! Clients breathing down your necks! Job delays!
We get it.
Safety is important, but finishing the job on time is critical for customer satisfaction.
We offer training in several formats to match the time you have, because skipping the toolbox talk is not an option.
We have 6-page Manager Safety Presentations for when you have a bit more time to spare or there is a weather delay and the crews have some downtime.
Our 2-page Foreman’s Topics take the most valuable content from the longer version and condenses it so you can quickly deliver the safety message for the week.
And The Fast 100 are 1-page safety training topics that can be covered in just a few minutes so your crews can start the day with safety on their mind and then get to work quickly.
5 minutes is all it takes to put your crews in the right frame of mind. #SafetyFirst
Oh yea. We’ve been there.
We got so sick and tired of trying to “sell safety” to those guys sitting in their comfortable offices getting paid the big bucks.
(Cynical much? Not us….what?)
They don’t want to pay for it.
They don’t want to staff for it.
If your leadership supports your safety initiatives, that is great! You are ahead of the game, and we applaud your senior staff.
If you are at your wits end and are spending half your time searching online for free safety meeting topics that are boring or have cartoon drawings, we can help.
A membership to Weeklysafety.com is inexpensive, but… awesome. The monthly cost is minimal and there is always a 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked.
You don’t need to pay thousands of dollars to at least get weekly toolbox talks in front of your crews, and that’s a great start.
Is it okay if we over deliver? Whenever you sign up, that is your monthly membership fee (or annual subscription fee) FOREVER. Your membership price will never go up.
We are passionate about what we do, and we aren’t going to apologize for that.
All it takes is a decision to start improving safety in small ways, this week, right now… If you're interested in knowing where to start, visit our site to learn more at Weeklysafety.com.
