Workplace safety is a must and more number of organisations are now aware of this. This is one of the reasons why there are now lesser reports of incidents at the workplace. But the fact is that even the statistics show a decline, the number of workplace related incidents are very high. Over the years it has been observed that there has been a 5% decrease in deaths at workplace due to incidents (in Canada).
Here are a few statistics to put things into perspective:
- This figure actually rose during the period between 1993 to 2005 to 1097 deaths per year from 758 in 1993.
- In 2008 there were approximately 3 fatalities each day for the entire year.
- The workplace deaths in 2010 were approximately 1014; close to 2 deaths per day.
These statistics collected from workplaces in Canada show a subtle decrease in number of workplace incidents as more people begin to get aware of the risks involved and more number of businesses take more safety precautions. It is statistics like these that highlight the need of safety training which can be either on site safety training or online safety training or even off site safety training.
Type of Safety Training:
The nature of the training has a lot to do with where the training is taken. For example, if the safety training involves use of special tools or setups like rope rescue then such a setup would most likely be available in house at the safety training provider’s facility. This facility is likely to have all the necessary tools and equipment necessary to simulate real life danger situations and provide necessary practical training besides the theoretical advice.
In addition to this there are often online safety training sessions available that are very useful. For example, in order to generate awareness about showing up to work while under the influence of alcohol and the possible implications it is easier to make use of online tutorial sessions by making it as graphic and descriptive as possible with appropriate tools. The main advantages of offering such online training sessions is that it is possible for the worker or even the employee for that matter to learn and view these sessions at their own comfort and leisure without any rush thus offering more flexibility.
On the other hand, instructor led training also has its advantages since it would mean physical training which can simulate real life situations. Thus with safety onsite training it is also possible to obtain first-hand information on first-aid, fire extinguisher handling, using rope during rescue and more.
