Part 1: Digitally Transform your Safety Culture

Technology is continuing to change the way people work and learn, so why aren’t you using these advancements to boost the effectiveness of your safety training?  Safety training is often viewed as the obligatory, mundane class you need to attend to check the OSHA compliance box, but it can be so much more effective with the infusion of do-it-yourself technology. Learn how simple and cost effective it is to incorporate electronic learning into you safety program to meet the expectations of modern day cultures.  From developing your own quick videos that address specific exposures to creating targeted, electronic resources that are appealing and timely, it can all be done with basic knowledge and little money.  Providing these short, digital training resources that are both entertaining and informative is a key element in transforming your safety culture.

At the completion of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Learn how technology can help create more effective safety training

Part 2: Where is Technology in Your Risk Toolbox?

Data, analytics, reports…etc. Everything is helpful when considering risk mitigating strategies.  But where is the real time feedback?  Is it even possible? If you can measure it, you can track it.  If you can track it, you can improve it.  Increased awareness leads to positive changes in behavior, thereby reducing risk.  Consider technology driven solutions to have in your toolbox.

At the completion of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify applicable technologically driven methods to minimize exposures
