HealthSafetyGroup offers small business owners a way to get workers involved, trained while your business demonstrates that it is compliant.
Small Business Pain Points
Most small companies, at one time or another, experience managerial challenges which create the need to be proactive to safeguard their business and maintain their employees wellbeing.
These “pain points” might include one or all if the following:
- Employee satisfaction
- Employee retention
- Safety awareness
- Safety training
- Company policy & protocol
- New Hire on boarding procedures
- Ineffective channels of communication
- Workplace cultural toxicity
- Regulation Compliance
Building and implementing a set of comprehensive policies and a health & safety program are complex tasks. Worker training often takes a back seat to doing all the things that a business does. As a result, most small business owners are hard-pressed to find the time to keep workers safe and take the necessary steps to be compliant.
Creating a culture of safety, mutual respect and empowerment can be a daunting. Communicating proper procedure, policy and protocol must be both effective and continual. It all starts with the top. Leaders lead, but business owners often miss the mark.
Here’s how the App works:
Every worker receives an automatic notification via mobile smart phones or tablets, typically on a once per day or once per week frequency (modified to suite the business owners’ needs), asking them simple yes/no or multiple choice questions. Small amounts of information, presented regularly in a fun way with video or graphics makes the messages easier to digest and retain.
Questions range in a wide variety of topics, relating to safety and policy, that are consistent with company cultural and training protocol. It takes only a minute or two for each worker to view, contemplate the issues or message at hand and then respond, which workers can do at anytime, at their convenience such as during their break, down time or at some other point during their day.
Questions range from actual WHMIS testing questions to simple safety training questions that tests the basic understanding in an informal, non-classroom setting, with small sub-sets of information. Infographics, short videos and games help demonstrate the information. Additional optimization such as extra questions can be customized, as well as the frequency of the questions.
The results of each workers’ answers are automatically recorded anonymously and used for a variety of compliance reports. These reports are auto generated and available with upgraded online access and provide reports on a regular basis.
Consistent use of the app demonstrates the ongoing commitment to training and safety as well as WHMIS understanding from both the employee and employer. This is important, as the use of this app indicates a commitment to training and safety that is both useful and can demonstrate compliance.
Data is presented in a variety of reports, the results of which can be used for safety meetings and training auditing to ensure there is understanding, improvement as well as ongoing compliance.
