For years, the delivery of information has been the method of choice for driving safe employee behaviors. Bring employees into a classroom, give them information, and then send them back to work with the expectation that they will now act on the information they were provided.

Unfortunately, there is a huge difference between what employees know about safety versus what they do with what they know. Information has value, but its impact is influenced not only by the quantity of content delivered, but also by HOW this content is developed, delivered, supported, and received! Part of the problem is that companies tend to focus on the content they are going to deliver, but neglect the importance of presenting it in a way that reaches the audience and supporting it over time in ways that drive lasting change.

In this session Michael introduces REP; The Rational, Emotional, and Physical approach to effective training. This dramatically improves the impact of training by insuring that the information delivered makes sense to the audience (Rational), that the audience understands what’s in it for them by acting on this information (Emotional), and that an environment is created after the training that supports and reinforces the content that was delivered (Physical). This fun, high-energy session offers insights and strategies for training that not only influence what participants know but also what they do with what they know.

This session provides tips for keeping employees engaged in the training along with effective methods for coaching positive changes in behavior long after the training session is over.

Why you should Attend

This session is for those responsible for providing safety training for employees. Companies are concerned that the safety training they provide to employees is not as effective as it could (and should) be. Organizations spend a tremendous amount of resources, including time, money, and energy on employee safety training. The question is whether or not they are getting an adequate return on this investment.

In many organizations, safety training is viewed as something that needs to be done in order to get it out of the way. Unfortunately, when it comes to safety training, much of this information is the difference between a safe and unsafe act. The good news is that making safety training more fun, more engaging, and more effective does not require a tremendous amount of effort. It simply requires attention to the few things that make a huge difference.
