One goal of OSHA's new rule to modernize injury data collection is aimed at pushing organizations to do a better job of recording injuries. However, the best way to improve safety is to have a knowledgeable workforce that can operate equipment safely, work with hazardous materials properly and knows what to do if something happens on the job.
One way to bridge the gap between employees knowing what to do and translating this knowledge into action is to take a proactive approach to learning and performance:
Today’s learning technologies have come a long way from the traditional classroom training or even Learning Management Systems (LMS). They give you the ability to track learning results as well as employee behavior on the job. They also allow you to compare knowledge and behavior against targets you’ve set that, when achieved, will reduce safety issues.
