A very vital thing for staff in the workplaces which is deemed compulsory in most firms is safety training.Personnel in charge of safety in a firm is expected to keep tabs on the latest updates on safety and keep guides to assure the workplace setting is always safe for staff.Recurrent training meetings are expected to keep staff well informed on any requirements or to measure are being followed through earnestly.Then what do the safety police in the firm have to do to make sure a session is fun and engaging?On the other hand, how does the firm ensure that the gatherings held for safety maintain a fun and engaging flow?
Inclusion of humor in the training when getting ready for it.It has been found that humor always receives a good response and people tend to go along in the hope of enjoying themselves.Granted most people rarely get to catch a break in real life, including humor in the training turns it into a lot of fun.
Assimilate the team into the training and have them partake in the sessions.Participation of the team shall ensure everyone’s attention is held.Indeed a safety training session is guaranteed of being more engaging this way.
Games, competition and rewards are another way to keep fun alive during such a gathering.Fun is usually not a frequently used word with staff during the usual work hours.A little competition is always good.Form teams and have staff compete to keep up with the training, ensure a reward is given for the winning teams, even though it is not a tangible reward, say something like leading in the next game or quiz session.Games are at the top of the list when thinking of fun.During the safety training, set up a few games that can end up assisting in the training rather than reduce the importance.The end result being that the training is a lot more fun.
Making a video which can be used as a tool and can help the staff remain attentive and have fun as well.When staff pay attention to the video, it is assumed a lot more information is absorbed rather than when there are no visual aids.
Most training sessions end on question and answer session, it is imperative to get back feedback and reviews at this point.The data collected at this point shall allow for improvements on the next session as information of what is fun and engaging shall be made clear by the staff themselves.Weigh the information given and incorporate the same in the upcoming safety training sessions.Sometimes staff end up feeling like they don’t belong in the firm and adding the suggestions they bring forth gives them a sense of belonging.Staff end up having fun and being frank in every other training making it quite fun and engaging while basking in the knowledge that their opinion counts.
