About This Course:
Providing effective safety training is always challenging. But providing this training to an increasingly diverse workforce introduces additional challenges such as language, learning approaches, educational levels, cultural factors, and more.

Consider the following facts:
  • By 2018, 63 percent of the U.S. workforce will be 25-54 years of age; 13 percent will be 16-24 years of age; and 24 percent will be 54 years old and above.
  • By 2050, new immigrants and their children will account for 83 percent of the growth in the working-age population.
With the U.S. workforce rapidly becoming more diverse in its mix of generations, ethnicities, cultural groups, and other dimensions, it has never been more important to consider and address these factors in your safety training curriculum and structure. The old days of dealing with a relatively homogenous workforce where one size fits all for safety training are quickly disappearing.

Understanding the challenges of effectively training a diverse workforce is the first step. By understanding these challenges, you can begin to develop a training program that not only addresses these issues, but also builds on the potential strengths that come with diversity. Take the time now to review your existing program and make sure it is meeting the needs of your diverse workforce.

Join us when Greg Duncan and Phil Molé, two seasoned safety professionals from VelocityEHS, will teach you how to assess the types of diversity in your workforce, determine effective training strategies that resonate with all of your workers, and implement and measure your training program’s effectiveness.

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the key demographics that will be shaping the future workforce with a focus on age and culture
  • Identify key groups and sub groups in your workforce
  • Consider the key safety training strengths and weaknesses for the current and future demographics of your workforce
  • Consider the most appropriate training presentation and curriculum for the groups in your organization
  • Identify the best communication strategies for your workforce
  • Identify key cultural factors, such as utilizing an elder or respected member of a group in the training process, that could make your training more effective
  • Involve various groups in the design of the training process to ensure that it meets their needs
