Build a Proactive Culture of Safety with Microlearning
May 9, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
In today’s complex and fast-paced world, workplace safety training programs are vital for the protection and wellbeing of employees.
But, creating a culture where employees are motivated to proactively adopt safety knowledge and practices takes more than defining policies and procedures, mandatory compliance training, and employee communications.
Join EHS Today, along with Terry Mathis (Founder & CEO of ProAct Safety) and Carol Leaman (CEO of Axonify) on Thursday, May 9th from 2 – 3 pm as they share strategies for building a proactive culture of safety. They will also discuss:
- The importance of reinforcing and empowering a culture of safety excellence at every level
- Ways to develop the capability within the culture to identify, prioritize, and solve safety problems and challenges with microlearning
- How to maintain and continuously improve safety culture performance through ongoing employee engagement and training
- Real-world examples of how industry leaders like Merck and Walmart are using microlearning to create a culture of safety excellence
