Improving Safety Training – a Hands-On approach

Improving Safety Training – a Hands-On approach

Virtual Webinar
Wednesday, March 29, 2023 to Wednesday, March 29, 2023

TAPPI PIMA and PPSA Partnered Webinar

2PM - 3PM (ET)

The prevention of serious, potentially life-altering injury is a key focus in many organizations.  One of the organizational responsibilities related to this includes training employees who may perform high hazard tasks.  Unfortunately, much of this training has been accomplished over the years – with varying degrees of success – by either on-the-job training or computer- based training or some combination of the two.

Training efforts, in the conjunction with high turnover rates in the current labor force, often prove to be ineffective.  Please join PPSA and PIMA on March 29th for an informative webinar highlighting alternative methods to improve safety training efforts through “hands-on, practical demonstration of understanding”. 

Data will be shared to illustrate the positive impact of such training and in addition, member companies will provide examples of how they are providing facilities and equipment for employees to demonstrate their understanding of the specific high-hazard safety training requirements.

Learning Outcomes: 

Attendees will be able to identify alternative methods to improve safety training efforts through “hands-on, practical demonstration of understanding”. Attendees will also be able to identify the positive impacts of such training.

Who Should Join: 

  • Safety Manager
  • Health and Safety Manager
  • Ergonomics Director
  • Safety Coordinator
  • Pulp & Paper, Corrugated, Recycle, Box Plant, Contractors
