3 Steps to Easy Online Compliance Training. Training employees is essential to maintaining a safe, happy, and profitable workplace. If you are a small business owner, you know that employee training is a distraction from your day-to-day operations, and it can be difficult to find the time to train your team. Thankfully, all the information and resources you need to provide a successful training program are just a click away.
1. Identifying the Specific Training Needed Based on Work Requirements
The duties of each staff member often involve various levels of training to assure safety in their work environment. Risk assessment of the individual employee work requirements can narrow down specific training needs and courses. While a supervisor may be aware of a majority of the work functions of an employee, a personal review of the duties may add to existing information. This is of particular use when staff members have multiple cross-department duties or when an employee’s responsibilities were expanded due to a change in company policies for the job or in the case of a promotion.
By examining the needs of the employees, you can create a list of the specific compliance training courses that are needed an allocate which staff should attend each course. In some cases, employees will have to attend multiple compliance training to correlate with their duties and to make sure they can accomplish them safely.
2. Prioritizing Training and Setting Start Dates
Work with individual department heads to confirm the list of staffers, the compliance training classes that are needed and to make sure all topics are covered. Each department can be responsible for scheduling their employees so that the work won’t experience interruptions. Allow for leeway for those staffers that must attend multiple training classes.
You will want to communicate with the employees the importance of the training for their safety. Emphasize that the goals of compliance training is to make sure that they truly learn and that it will contain information that they will find valuable.
3. Enroll in an Online Training Program
