How To Keep Mandatory Refresher Training Interesting
Maybe you’ve heard this:
Workforce safety training is boring.
The occupational safety & health administration (OSHA) has more than 20 standards that require annual training for employees exposed to hazards like bloodborne pathogens, excessive noise, benzene, asbestos, and formaldehyde. Also, annual training is required for employees who have specific responsibilities, like jobs involving fire response teams, serving as a designated first aid provider, or where workers are members of underground construction teams. And if new machinery arrives, new processes are implemented, or employees take on new jobs with new exposure to different hazards, osha requires training.
All of these standards require certain workers to take the same training courses year after year.
