When it comes right down to it the key question in safety training is ‘did they get it?’ Video and on-line training has become the standard in today’s world due to cost and availability but you can never be sure of the results. People especially adults learn in various formats and people process information differently from each other. CORE 1 onsite trainers find ways of engaging students in the learning process. Utilizing traditional proven methods people process information that usually include visual, auditory, and kinesthetic processes. People tend to rely on one of these more than the other. Visual people tend to memorize and learn seeing the big picture. Auditory people learn by listening to the big picture. Kinesthetic learn by actively getting the feel of the big picture. The majority of adult learners tend to be either visual or kinesthetic learners in other words hands on.
CORE 1 SAFETY TRAINING has developed a simple method that complies with ANSI Z-490 standards for adult learners of all job descriptions.
C- COMMUNICATION. All trainees have different training needs and preferences in an educational setting with a wide difference in education and job experiences. Adult learners offer vast life and job experience. CORE 1 develops the knowledge and skills through communication training to be transferred to on the job situations. Our trainers evaluate what inhibits active participation in the training session. Good communication skills and involvement by workers are a clear link to increased awareness and safe workplace practices.
O- OBSERVATION. CORE1 believes this is the most important role of the learning process. If you look at a root cause pyramid you will find that there are 500 opportunities to catch 1 accident before it happens. Observation involves the senses hearing, sight, smell, touch, gestures, silence, posture, movement and intuition. Upon completion of CORE training associates pay more attention to materials and hazards they are working with.
R- REPORTING. Whether we like it or not reporting is part of the accident process. CORE 1 teaches the uses the OSHA 300, 300A, and 301 log along with other accident reporting skills so the associates who witnessed any accidents can give an accurate description of hazards which may have lead up to the incident, also trying to give reporting associate the clear sense of justification that they are helping solve a problem not telling on fellow associates.
E. EDUCATION. CORE 1 trainers utilize the 3 types of learning.
1. Cognitive. Learning that involves knowledge and the development of skills or stuff that makes sense. Being able to recall information regarding safety rules and their meaning.
2. Psychomotor. The use of motor skills, physical movement, coordination, and practice. Performance of the skill is produced by trial and error and hands on involvement.
3. Affective. Learning involves feelings, values, motivations, attitudes, appreciation and enthusiasm. This will allow the learner to new skills, knowledge and attitude about material covered.
Training must be effective that means it must work.
