Budget-Friendly Workplace Safety Training

Budget-Friendly Workplace Safety TrainingFor any small business, safety training is critical. However, the resources for providing such comprehensive training might be harder to come by in a smaller business. Therefore, it’s important to understand how to implement a safety training program on a limited budget. Even more importantly, however, is ensuring your operation is secured with a Champaign-Urbana Workers’ Comp Insurance program.

According to an article in The Workers’ Comp Gazette, the best way to implement low-cost safety training programs is through employee engagement. Here are a few ways to engage your employees without the hefty price tag.

  1. Don’t buy generic safety videos as they do not pertain to your workplace’s specific risk environment.
  2. Make a custom PowerPoint Presentation by taking pictures of your employees on the job with a digital camera. Use these photos to indicate the right and wrong ways to do on the job tasks. Further, be sure to add safety protocols and policies to the slides.
  3. Have an experienced supervisor conduct a group training session.
  4. Create a slogan to place around the workplace to remind employees about proper safety practices.
  5. Provide incentives for employees to participate in safety programs.
