Not sure what safety training your employees need? A training needs analysis can help

by , 12 June 2014
Health and safety training is expensive. You can't afford to just go around training every employee on every health and safety topic out there.

You need to be able to give the right employees, the right training. This will help you run a more efficient health and safety programme and save resources.

But who knows what those OSHA training requirements are?

Don't panic! You can easily get the answer to that question by using this nine step training needs analysis process...

*********** Hot off the press  ************
Secret revealed! Cut your time spent on health and safety training in HALF!
I've got a way to HALVE the time you spend searching for documents, checking for the correct up-to-date policies and preparing training material for staff.

Do this to find out exactly what your employees' training needs are

Not all of your employees have to get full OHS training. But the OHS Act does say you must train all the employees you're going to appoint to health and safety positions. 
You can use a training-needs analysis to break this down. 
This is very important because you can't appoint an employee to take legal responsibility without training him.
If you don't train your employee, he'll make mistakes and those mistakes can lead to serious safety incidences.
In turn, that could leave you with DoL penalties and lawsuits.
To avoid all this, rather just follow this nine step training-needs analysis process...

Follow these nine steps to easily do a training needs analysis

The Health and Safety Advisor says you should follow these nine steps: 

Step 1: List the legal appointments you must make on your site;
Step 2: List the training you must give each appointed employee before they take on responsibilities;
Step 3: Contact two or three Occupational Health and Safety Service Providers. Ask them for their certification to prove they're qualified to offer health and safety training;
Step 4: Evaluate the course content and its outcomes. This will help you choose the best service provider. Just don't base this choice on the one that's cheapest;
Step 5: Add the information about the training courses to your lists;
Step 6: Fill in all the details for the people attending the training;
Step 7: Write down the schedule date the service provider gives you for the training;
Step 8: Write down the safety certification number in case you lose the certificate;
Step 9: Write down the date when your employees will need a refresher course or when their certificates expire.
You should fill all this information into a spreadsheet. This will help you analyse the information quickly, easily and ensure you'll never get confused about who must get what training and when, ever again.
