The Power of Hands-On Safety Training: Sandra McWha

When it comes to teaching new employees workplace safety, knowledge alone isn’t enough. To truly foster a culture of safety and minimize risks, organizations can’t just put the new recruits in an office and lecture them with PowerPoint slides. Instead, an organization must invest in hands-on safety training. 

I recently talked with Sandra McWha about her interactive approach to teaching safety to new workers at Husqvarna Motorcycles. Sandra’s approach enhances their understanding of potential hazards, and empowers them to take proactive measures to ensure a secure work environment. 

Here are some of the benefits of hands-on safety training: 

  • Hands-on training offers a more engaging and interactive learning experience compared to traditional classroom-style instruction. 
  • One of the significant advantages of hands-on training is the ability to simulate real-life workplace hazards and emergencies. 
  • Hands-on training instills confidence in workers as they gain practical experience in implementing safety procedures. 
  • Hands-on training often involves group activities, fostering teamwork and effective communication among employees. 
  • Regular hands-on training allows organizations to continually assess and improve their safety protocols.
