After determining the right method in training the workers, the trainers should plan what resources they will use. Resources include references for the training and training materials. Going back to the example on training in the workplace, the trainer should include an appropriate number of fire extinguishers and some flammable materials for demonstration. Flowcharts may also be made and used to train them on emergency measures. A map or an actual tour in the workplace may also be done to show the exit routes.
In creating a training design, bear in mind the knowledge and skills the workers need to learn. Appropriate methods must be planned carefully. The trainers may choose from a wide variety of methods such as giving lectures, facilitating group discussions and activities, demonstration and return-demonstration, and even role playing.
BCSP also offers accredited certifications which were formerly offered by the Council on Certification of Health, Environment and Safety Technologists (CCHEST). These include the Occupational Health and Safety Technologist (OHST), Certified Loss Control Specialist (CLCS), Construction Health and Safety Technician (CHST) and Safety Trained Supervisor (STS) certifications.
Much University offers a Master of Science in Health and Safety, with a specialization in Occupational Safety Management. The course delivery is primarily through television, but a weekly personal interaction with the instructor might be necessary.
Health and Safety Distance Learning involves taking an Associate, Bachelors, or Graduate Degree in Occupational Safety and Health through the distance or online mode. Several Graduate and Undergraduate Certificate Courses are also available. Those planning to become Health and Safety Technicians can go for an OH&S Training Perth, while those aspiring to become Health and Safety Specialists should go for at least a Bachelors, as the main employer in the domain, the Federal and State Governments, have fixed it as the minimum qualification.
Now, how does a company conduct a training program on occupational health and safety? The company, the safety committee, or a group assigned to be in charge of training should first consider the training needs of the workers, which can be done through a survey or series of interviews. Knowing their training needs would help the group to tailor fit the topics for the workers. For instance, are the workers knowledgeable on emergency measures? Or are they oriented on the use of equipment? If the workers do not know how to use a fire extinguisher or where the exit routes are, perhaps the trainers can plan sessions for these. Making a training design, therefore, is dependent on the training needs of the workers.
