BLR has recently launched a new magazine called Safety Decisions and its inaugural issue features Tim Page-Bottorff discussing the importance of providing hands-on safety training.

Titled “All Hands on Deck for Safety Training”, the article examines some of the myths and realities of safety training, including which methods are most effective and how many safety professionals actually follow best practices. The results are staggering.

Tim finds that most safety folks lean heavily on in-class training even though a number of studies suggest that hands-on training can provide better knowledge retention and higher rates of employee engagement.

As a safety training expert, Tim is well-versed in how to get more from safety training, from injecting humor into safety presentations to engaging employees directly. Not using hands-on training to its full benefit? Tim’s article includes tips on how to incorporate it into your current safety mix, so be sure to check it out online here.
