The Top 6 Employee Training Topics: Requirements and Best Practices to Protect Employee Safety

May 21, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Employee training is often required by regulation but providing training in non-mandatory topics can help better protect your employees and your company’s bottom line. Your overall goal should be ensuring the safety, welfare, and productivity of your workers, not merely satisfying a particular compliance obligation. All training should help employees protect themselves and avoid hazards, so providing training in additional areas (even if not required) gives employees more information to remain safe — and helps protect your business as well.

This presentation will focus on six topics that often cause problems even when employers do provide training. They include:

  • Hazard Communication, which consistently appears in OSHA’s top 10 list of most-violated regulations;
  • Powered Industrial Trucks, another in OSHA’s top 10 list, where training includes operator evaluations;
  • Active Shooter/Bullying, which is not required by law, but bullying occurs in nearly every workplace, and preventing violence should be an employer priority;
  • Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), also in the top 10 violations list, which creates the potential for serious injuries and fatalities;
  • Bloodborne Pathogens, which impacts many employers – any company with designated first aid responders must provide this training annually; and
  • Sexual Harassment, which many employers provide to new hires — but the continued prevalence in workplaces suggests that training could be more effective.
