1. How can you develop an effective training module, for inculcating a safety conscience culture among all workers, working in a firm of a ‘concrete specialty contractor’ Whether the team is made up of ten or one hundred workers, here are a few easy ways to induce safety conscience culture among all workers. Emphasize the Risks No matter how one decides to teach the employees about concrete safety, it’s important to stress the risks involved before anything else. This will grab their attention and keep them watchful whenever they are near to concrete. Emphasize that neglecting certain safety practices can lead to severe harm to not just themselves, but their co-workers. Mishandling concrete materials can lead to: Severe chemical burns Breathing issues Trips, slips, and falls Modes of teaching concrete safety By emphasizing the severe risks associated with concrete, we’re on the right track. Next, it’s time to discuss the basics of concrete safety. But let’s say we want to present this in an easily digestible way that won’t bore our team. Here are a few ways this can be done. Videos A series of videos on the topic can be an easy, quick, and thorough way to present the information. Screen it for the workers and send it to their WhatsApp. We want it to be long enough that it covers a wide variety of topics—but not too long that no one has time out of their day to actually watch it. In person workshops In some cases, holding an in-person workshop may be a more engaging way of teaching so much information at once. Remember, it can be a lot of information to go over. We must discuss how to protect the eyes, skin, head, and back. There are also different protocols for handling various situations. For example, how dry concrete can affect workers versus wet concrete. PowerPoint Presentation A PowerPoint is a great way to combine an in-person presentation, with engaging visuals. We can organize the information, making it a lot easier to remember. Separate the presentation into categories such as: The consequences Protective gear: gloves, masks, goggles, and appropriate clothing What not to do around concrete: both wet and dry Handling the machinery What to do in case of an emergency Concrete safety is no joke. By being thorough in the teaching process, we are securing the safety of our workers and the integrity of our company. It doesn’t have to be a dull process. Teaching safety practices can be informative and light—but remember, it is always necessary to keep the on field check.
