This one-day workshop will help you teach participants how to:
- Understand the difference between a safety program and a safety culture
- Use resources to help you understand the regulations in your area
- Launch a safety committee
- Identify hazards and reduce them
- Apply hiring measures that can improve safety
- Explain what a safety training program will involve
- Identify groups particularly at risk for injury and know how to protect them
- Help your organization write, implement, and review a safety plan
- Respond to incidents and near misses
- Understand the basics of accident investigation and documentation
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Defining a Safety Culture
This session will explore the idea of a safety culture. Participants will also be asked to identify how safety applies to their organization.
Governing Bodies and Resources
It is essential that organizations map their safety plan to regulations in their area. This session will look at some of the key organizations and how to contact them.
A good first safety step is establishing a safety committee. This session will give participants some ideas on getting started.
Hazard identification typically forms the basis for a safety plan. We will look at some ways of identifying hazards and then we will apply those methods to a case study.
Hazard resolution is the logical step to take after hazard identification. We will look at three ways of resolving hazards and then we will apply those methods to a case study.
Taking Proactive Measures
There are measures you can take when hiring and training employees to make your workplace safer. This session will explore these measures through lecture and discussion.
Identifying Groups at Risk
During this session, we will look at a number of factors that can increase a person’s risk of accident. We will also look at how to mitigate these risks.
Writing a Safety Plan
Everything that we have discussed so far will come together to create a safety plan.
Implementing the Plan
Your safety culture will only be a success if it is accepted and adopted by your employees. We will discuss just how to do this in a lecture.
No matter how well your safety culture is implemented and accepted, there will still be incidents. This session will look at how to respond to, document, and investigate incidents. We will also discuss how to handle near misses.
Reviewing the Program
The final essential component of your safety plan is to include a review process. We will look at when and how the plan should be evaluated.
At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
