Safety Training For A Diverse Workforce: Reaching Your Audience And Overcoming Barriers To Drive Safety Performance
|Date / Time:
Providing effective safety training is always challenging. But providing this training to an increasingly diverse workforce introduces additional challenges such as language, learning approaches, educational levels, cultural factors, and more.
Consider the following facts:
With the U.S. workforce rapidly becoming more diverse in its mix of generations, ethnicities, cultural groups, and other dimensions, it has never been more important to consider and address these factors in your safety training curriculum and structure. The old days of dealing with a relatively homogenous workforce where one size fits all for safety training are quickly disappearing.
- By 2018, 63 percent of the U.S. workforce will be 25-54 years of age; 13 percent will be 16-24 years of age; and 24 percent will be 54 years old and above.
- By 2050, new immigrants and their children will account for 83 percent of the growth in the working-age population.
Understanding the challenges of effectively training a diverse workforce is the first step. By understanding these challenges, you can begin to develop a training program that not only addresses these issues, but also builds on the potential strengths that come with diversity. Take the time now to review your existing program and make sure it is meeting the needs of your diverse workforce.
Join us when Greg Duncan and Phil Molé, two seasoned safety professionals from VelocityEHS, will teach you how to assess the types of diversity in your workforce, determine effective training strategies that resonate with all of your workers, and implement and measure your training program’s effectiveness.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
