4 Benefits of & the Importance of Safety Training


Safety Training--Why So Important?

September, National Preparedness Month, is winding to an end; so we here at Safety Training Services, Inc. feel it is important to speak briefly about the importance of training, especially in the workplace.

Merriam-Webster defines "training" as the skill, knowledge or experience acquired by one that trains. Specifically, "safety training" is for employees or even individuals working within the industrial and/or construction industries.

Many of them utilize equipment that has associated hazards intrinsic to its' use.  

For example, forklifts, scissor lifts, boom lifts, even ladders, scaffolds or powered hand tools; just to name a few. Employee safety training is the necessary action or preventative action in order to instruct and teach your employee about the hazards and provide them the correct OSHA policies and procedures to stay safe while operating the machine or tool within the workplace. 

 Specifically, there are many benefits to training:

  • Statistically, less accidents!
  • Increased efficiency & productivity
  • Improves employee morale
  • Less time/manpower wasted on supervision and/or micromanagement
So why wait until the unthinkable happens? Contact STS and discuss your training requirements with one of our safety and hazardous materials specialists today!
