Irrespective of the number of safety training workers at your company must have undergone, it shouldn’t stop them from taking on site safety training on the job. Remember, as human , we might easily forget some of the safety tips learnt in previous training, which is why they need to be reminded from time to time while on the job. On site safety training is usually given at the site of work. In most cases workers are given the necessary safety tips before the commencement of work for the day. Listed below are some of the importance of on- site safety training:
Deep understanding of the hazards associated with their job
In most of the cases workers often forget safety tips associated with equipment they use during their job. Some of them might even neglect the safety rules while using their equipment, thereby standing at higher chances of sustaining injuries, and in extreme cases, it might eventually lead to loss of life. During this training, workers will be reminded and enlightened on how to safely operate their equipment’s. In a way, theses makes them to be very careful and safety conscious during operation.
Solutions to questions
Nearly all worker do face one challenge or the other during operation, and they tend to keep it to themselves because there might not be anybody on the field to trained enough to proffer a solution. Scenarios like this poses great danger to their safety at work. But during the course of this training, they will be given the chance to ask questions bothering them, and all their questions and concerns will be answered by certified safety officers.
Reduction in the number On-Site casualties
Any construction industry where onsite safety training is not taken seriously might often record casualties in the course of their operation. Casualties which may have been mitigated if on site safety training were to be taken seriously. When there is reduction in the number of casualties recorded at work , there will be:
• Increase in the production rate.
• Increase in profit.
• Reduced LTI.
• Reduction in workers absence from work.
Safety in the workplace is very important which is why on-site safety training must be given at all times to workers who works in environments prone to hazards.
