Be smart about video safety training

Safety is important when dealing with material handling equipment.

Safety is important when dealing with material handling equipment.

Using material handling equipment is a great way to keep your warehouse operations running smoothly and efficiently, as it helps you take more inventory at a time than a worker can do by his or herself. However, like with any equipment, there can be risk for injury, which is why safety training should be an essential component of any warehouse operation.

One way to help get everyone on the same page regarding worker safety is using safety training videos. According to Occupational Health & Safety, the video message should always stay to the point, because it’s easier for viewers’ brains to process if it stays on message while being clear and concise.

Additionally, the source reports you may want to provide training videos that your employees can watch anytime, anywhere. This way, you don’t have to worry about having everyone sitting down to watch it during work hours at the same time. Instead, you can have a complete button, so employees can watch the video and you can know when they’ve finished it.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports that safety training is often reactive, but by having videos that can be done throughout the year, you’re always keeping safety at the forefront of people’s minds.
