Videos: The Secret to Making Safety Trainings Stick
After the hype of the training, employees will eventually forget—this doesn’t have to be your reality. Here's the secret to making safety trainings stick.
There’s no question about it: safety training programs are important. An educated workforce minimizes the risk for accidents, improves productivity and boosts employee morale.
Promoting a safety-first culture is actually your cheapest, foolproof strategy to keeping unnecessary costs at bay. With employees prioritizing safety and preventing accidents, there’s assurance that there would be less unnecessary costs in legal battles and lifelong support for employees’ families.
The challenge most companies face today, however, is making safety trainings stick. Surveys show that people use just a portion of the training to actual jobs. That’s just the reality of it: employees hear, then they forget.
The Forgetting Curve
The problem you face today isn’t entirely new, though. In fact, in 1885, there’s a psychologist by the name of Herman Ebbinghaus who explained why we’re just too forgetful. He discovered that when people are introduced to an idea one time, they only remember 60% of what they learned after a day, 40% after two days, and well, just a pinch of knowledge three, four days after your hyped up safety training. The culprit for these slipping-away memories? Lack of follow-up.
Studies show that the forgetting curve can be curbed through ‘interval reinforcement’. In simpler terms, repetition. When your employees, either by themselves or with your help, repeatedly revisit what they learned in the training, knowledge and skills will eventually stick.
The Secret to Trainings that Stick
The best way you can make trainings stick and get the most of your investment is harness the power of videos. Videos are effective tools for follow-up. You can easily use these technologies in reinforcing important points or reminding them about issues they seem to always overlook at your operations. Because audio and visuals go together in videos and information is in short, bite-size pieces, it’s easier to understand.
Another benefit to training videos is they’re always available. You can just leave them in your resources room and employees can access them whenever they need to refresh their memory. You don’t have to go through the hassle of inviting someone over just to remind employees of safety-first practices. When employees can access videos regularly, your training investment will bring long-term results, for sure.
