It is important to use tracking and reporting methods that demonstrate your commitment. A simple solution is to implement learning management software that automatically tracks the data and turns it into reports. Being able to demonstrate your OSH management processes through introductory training is critical to demonstrating your ability to meet workplace requirements. You may have first-class teaching methods and courses, but if you don’t demonstrate their effectiveness, or even how well they are used, it won’t help you when they audit you.
An additional simple solution is to implement an online learning system. Often times, this is not only the fastest way to achieve a goal, but it also fixes IT problems. Also, many companies update their induction training software frequently, and enhancements are rolled out automatically for all customers.
What to look for
Bringing simplicity to your induction learning methods should always be the primary goal, without, of course, compromising capabilities. Fortunately, there are online solutions available that allow you to create comprehensive reports, no matter how many people you train, with just one click. However, reporting capabilities will differ from solution to solution, so make sure your needs can be met before purchasing.
Experience is also very important. There are many initial training solutions created by enterprising IT professionals who, sadly, do not have the in-depth workplace security experience necessary to understand the complexities of OSH management. These solutions are generally not delivered!
Start by knowing exactly what you need to accomplish based on your training and reporting requirements. A simple checklist is a good way to start and then do your research. Review the various solutions, then pick up the phone and talk to someone. Do they understand your concerns and the language you use, or are they just trying to criticize your product? Give them a try and you will know very quickly if you are talking to the right people or not.
Back to the follow-up!
It is very important to have a clear understanding of what you need to communicate. Each company will have its own complexities that must be taken into account. But a good system will have most, if not all, of the reporting capabilities that you may have already thought of. And if you find a system that you really like from a company you trust, give it a try and see if they can build it for you.
Companies must improve induction courses for new hires in order to create a productive workforce. Initial training can also take many forms, from vocational training to professional training in your company. Introductory contractor courses and safety awareness often play a much larger role in an organization’s induction program.
