2. From Knowing to Doing: Getting the Most out of Your Safety Training Efforts
For years, classroom training has been the method of choice for influencing employee behavior. Unfortunately it has become abundantly clear that there is a huge difference between "what employees know" and "what employees do with what they know". While information certainly has value, its impact is influenced not only by the quality of the content, but also by how this content is developed, packaged, delivered and reinforced. This fun, high energy and humorous workshop takes an in-depth look at training and offers insights and time-tested strategies that not only influence what employees know, but also what they do.

This workshop will describe a broad range of risk assessment techniques from the ISO 31010 Risk Assessment Standard.
