Workplace training is, by its nature, designed to edu- cate adults from various backgrounds who will conse- quently face different challenges. The role of trainers is, therefore, twofold, in that they are required both to disseminate material and to tailor their teaching style to suit the requirements of each particular trainee. In the course of developing instructional methods, trainers must consider the value of andra- gogical theory in the training of more mature trainees. It will be of benefit to them to have access to data that quantify the significance of this approach in par- ticular. The term andragogy, used in this context, refers to techniques used to educate adults through facilitation, while pedagogy is generally associated with K-12 instruction. Andragogy, as a learning theory, was introduced to the United States by Malcolm Knowles, who defined the term as ‘the art and science of helping adults learn’ (Kaufman, 2003, p. 213). It derives from the term Andragogik, coined by German educator Alexander Kapp in 1833 and refers to the education of adults (Sta¨hli, 2005). Unlike pedagogy, which typically involves the proper use of teaching strategies and styles of instruction to educate children or teenagers, andragogy involves the trainer helping adults to learn through facilitation rather than dicta- tion. Andragogical methods have frequently been found effective in retraining individuals to adapt to new jobs and in supporting the learning of those whose capacity for conventional academic learning is in doubt.
Employers in the industry invest large amounts of money into designing, developing and delivering these safetytraining programs (Hinze, Gambatese, 2003). Despite these efforts, not much has changed and both fatal and nonfatal injury rates in the construction industry remain high. Poor training and poor retention of relevant knowledge among construction workers are two factors that are responsible for this high incidence of injury. Therefore, it would be of great value to the industry to review their training practices and make recommendations for enhanced delivery (Wilkins, 2011).
In addition to the regularly scheduled courses, LEHDER can customize and deliver any transportation, environmental, health and safety courses to meet a client's specific needs. These courses can be delivered at a location of the client's choice. Train the Trainer programs available for most courses.
WHAT IS WOSHTEP?
The Worker Occupational Safety and HealthTraining and Education Program (WOSHTEP) is an exciting statewide effort aimed at reducing job-related injuries and illnesses among California workers. By promoting health and safety on the job, WOSHTEP can also help lower workers’ compensation costs for employers. The program was created as part of workers’ compensation reform and is administered by California’s Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation (CHSWC) in the Department of Industrial Relations.

The following is an excerpt from Forest Service Handbook 7309.11 , Section 44 , Section 44 – – Inspections: Inspections:
44.2 - Safety and Health Inspections. Inspect more frequently facilities that house increased-risk operations, as described in 29 CFR 1960.25(c), and specific high-hazard situations. Intensity of inspection shall be commensurate with the risk involved (FSM 6700). Report deficiencies as required in FSM 6700.
Although cultural inclusions into curriculum are now widespread, Gallagher and Polanin (2014) reviewed 25 studies of educational cultural competence interventions and concluded that these interventions varied in their effectiveness. Some studies show that students demonstrate enhanced cultural awareness, an appreciation of difference and similarities across cultures, and increased personal and professional growth (Neander & Markle, 2005; Casey & Murphy, 2008; Bittle et al., 2002; Hamner et al., 2007; Hunt & Swiggum, 2007; Hutnik & Gregory, 2008; Kruske et al., 2006). Other studies have demonstrated that training was successful in improving learners' cultural awareness,
It is unreasonable to expect that every worker in an organization be engaged in some sort of co-worker training and such an expectation must be excluded in assessment of this attribute. In most organizations, there are individuals who have the ability and desire (or at least willingness) to help in the development of their co-workers. These individuals often make excellent instructors because of their experience-based credibility. When the subject matter is safety and health the visibility of an employee instructor adds to the safety and health culture of the organization. Mentoring by an experienced employee can be an especially effective way to instill safety and health in a new employee. The mentoring and coaching activities that take place in an organization are often unofficial and informal. For this reason, interviews with employees are needed to uncover the true extent of employee-provided guidance for safety and health that may be taking place. Confirming cues for this attribute are suggested when the consultant ascertains that employees are participating in formal training of their co- workers on safety and health issues.

representativeness. Despite the small population studied, various job categories that are typical in any healthcare setting, be it public or private, were represented. Furthermore, this study included healthcare professionals from three out of five regions in Malaysia, and had a high response rate among the participants. In order to take care of their own health and safety, workers must understand occupational risks and dangers. A large proportion of occupational hazards in the workplace can be prevented or controlled through different measures, such as safe work practices, appropriate tools, work organisation and provision of information to the workers to enable them to minimise risks while performing their duties. Workers should therefore be well informed of hazards and adequately trained to carry out their tasks safely. Training enables workers not only to perform their jobs, but also to protect their lives and health, as well as that of their co-workers. OSH training at all levels should be emphasised as a means of improving working conditions and the work environment, and thus inculcating a healthy and safe work culture. Despite awareness campaigns conducted through promotion and public talks for many years, the knowledge of OSH is still not up to the desired level. Healthcare organisations should plan a more focused
We’ve all heard the old saying ‘…. if you think health and safety is expensive…..try accidents’. This may sound a bit “old hat” these days, at least to some. If it does there is still no reason to reject the underlying common sense thinking behind it. Slips and trips accidents seldom make headline news unlike transport or falls from height.
2. Applicants must send the application form for Recognized H&S Training Provider Status for Classroom Training (see Appendix B) to WorkSafeNB with all required information and documents. These training providers will be added to our website with the notation of “Recognition Pending”.
3. Upon receipt of application, WorkSafeNB will validate the applicant’s internal assessment of its own courses and facilitators by selecting an appropriate sample number of courses and facilitators for review. Participant feedback of the courses being observed by WorkSafeNB is worth 5% of the total assessment score. Feedback will be obtained by using a Course Evaluation Form (see Appendix C). Training providers who have not provided all required documents will receive a notification that the assessment will not proceed until the missing documents are received.

Materials and Methods: The study population consisted of 32 employees of the operations unit working in one of the mines in Yazd Province. The standard 20-item Safety Climate Questionnaire (α = 0.77) which was valid and reliable was used to evaluate the safety culture at the unit. In this questionnaire, the items were scored based on a 5-point Likert scale. Data were collected before and 2 months after the HSE-MS training courses. The inclusion and exclusion criteria were willingness to participate in the project, at least 1 year of work experience, and the lack of specific and neurological diseases. The collected data were entered into SPSS statistical software.
Integrating Occupational Safety and HealthTraining into Career Technical Education in Construction 20 • Provide other tools to support health and safety in CTE programs. For example, in Massachusetts,
the Occupational Health Surveillance Program (Massachusetts Department of Public Health) has developed a guide for co-operative work experience coordinators in CTE programs to help them safely place students in work experience settings. The guide includes information on requirements under the law, as well as assessment checklists for non-safety experts (48). Many noted that states with strong health and safety requirements at the state level, where teachers attend regular training, inspections are required, etc. , also have strong educational programs for their students. Model states mentioned by more than one key informant were Oklahoma, Ohio, Georgia and Florida (especially regarding their data systems). Other states mentioned by only one key informant were Minnesota, Texas, New York, Iowa, Connecticut, and Wisconsin.
Nowadays, the need to control system is a basic, integral requirement for most industrial process today. Process control allows manufacturers to obtain the higher level of quality control and to conform to stricter safety of workers and consumers. Manufacturers need to control the manufacturing environment in order to produce uniform product. Many chemical reactions are dependent on very specific reaction condition. For safety reasons, manufactured often needs to control physical variable of processes. These are all reason why control systems have become so widespread in the modern industry world.
Abstract The study is about history of health and safety legislation in Romania, about European tools, empowerment procedures, organisations and association in the field. It`s an overview about European tools to allow people free movements all around European Union (EU). The study presents tools which identifies the fundamental skills, the most important abilities and knowledge that people would need to be recognised, in order to allow free movements all around European employment market. The study is about possibilities to be voluntary recognised as a health and safety professionals across EU and why not, around the world. It`s a brief list of ways of transfer and recognition of learning experiences in Europe, including vocational education and training, for a better understanding of qualifications from different EU countries. The research presents ENSHPO (The European Network of Safety & Health Professional Organisations) and EUSAFE (European project) voluntary certification procedures for occupational health and safety professionals (OHS) and where the Romanian practitioners are placed, if their qualifications could be recognised through Europe. The research presents the necessary characteristics for a well-developed profession, as mentioned by Ferguson & Ramsay  and also presents IOSH, the most valuable health and safety professional association and the necessary steps for Romanian OHS practitioners to build a strong association. IOSH is the model of a profession and Romanian practitioners could learn to become Charted Members. The European Union single market - as well as the increasing number of companies operating across Europe that are applying a consistent set of safety and health standards to their work sites - has created a great need for safety and health managers with credentials that are recognised at a Pan-European level. The absence of a harmonised, agreed system for the mutual recognition of safety & health qualifications at a European level creates uncertainty about professional competence across countries within Europe and may create problems for multinational companies in the effective use of their safety and health expertise. It also forms a barrier for safety and health professionals wishing to offer their services across the EU. Knowing their training level is necessary to determine the

Front-Line Construction Supervisor SafetyTraining
24 Hours | $495 Contract | $7,000 This course provides information, techniques, and tools for leadership development of today’s front-line construction supervisors. Front-line construction supervisors provide the first line of defense in managing safety issues, communicating organizational priorities and values, and building relationships with individual team members to get the job done. They are the faces of our companies. They are also the people who can make or break any contractor’s safety program. This course will assist first-line supervisors in building and sustaining a positive and effective safety culture by showing them how to influence employees to make wise decisions, perform tasks safely, and to work toward prevention through a culture response. Generational and cultural diversity, employee engagement, coaching, and team building are just a few of today’s workforce issues that will be covered. The training integrates the nine best practices considered “high-impact, zero-injury techniques” (Pignoet, 2003) and demonstrates how these practices can be visualized and implemented by first-line supervisors.
