Let’s explore a few of the safety training topics available through SafelyHome.
1. Supervisor Training in Accountability & Recognition Techniques (S.T.A.R.T.)
S.T.A.R.T. gives supervisors and managers the leadership skills they need to create a safety-oriented culture across all levels of their organization. Students of this course will walk away with an understanding of how safety impacts the bottom line of the entire company. The S.T.A.R.T. curriculum features up to eight hours of facilitated content spread across three modules, which can be delivered by your own trainers or by Caterpillar experts.
2. Speak Up! Listen Up! For Construction
It’s everyone’s responsibility on the worksite to speak up whenever they see something unsafe, but sometimes that’s a hard message to hear and process. Speak Up! Listen Up! empowers employees to communicate with confidence about unsafe conditions and behaviors. The course covers how to give and receive constructive feedback and apply effective communication techniques on the job. This course can also be delivered by your trainers or by Caterpillar experts.
3. Recognize It!
Recognize It! gives supervisors at all levels the tools they need to deliver safety feedback to their employees. Building a culture of best safety practices not only means identifying and correcting unsafe behaviors — it also means recognizing team members for their safe actions and holding up correct behaviors as a positive example. This course gives supervisors a process for delivering feedback that encourages the right behaviors and motivates accountability, and it can also be delivered by your own trainers or by Caterpillar experts.
4. eLearning Fundamentals
These online courses typically run between 20-40 minutes and are intended to provide safety training basics on a variety of topics. These courses feature video and audio narration, activities and a post-course assessment. Topics include first aid basics, fall protection, fire prevention, active shooter prevention and preparation, excavation and trenching safety, and a review of personal protective equipment. In SafelyHome’s eLearning catalog, you can find any number of safety training modules that fit your needs.
