Become an OHS Registry Certified Professional Instructor
Workplace instructors occupy a key position in promoting learning at the workplace. The workplace instructor provides the student worker with induction, guidance, support, and they evaluate the skills performance of workers. The workplace instructor is also a safety leader.
Workplace instructors have the responsibility to participate in identifying and correcting job-related health and safety concerns. This means that every workplace instructor needs to develop and use leadership skills. A safety leader values both their and their co-worker’s safety and well-being.
Workplace instructors must take the opportunity to develop their own instructional skills and assessment skills. Understanding Communication Skills provides guidance to workplace leaders so that they can be better prepared to successfully deliver safety training to their co-workers.
The OHS Registry Instructor Certification Course assists the workplace instructor in the development of communication skills so that they can be prepared to speak in front of a classroom audience, deliver workplace induction or toolbox talks effectively.
The workplace instructor must know what good communication is and what the principles for effective communication are in order to engage their co-workers. Getting employees to stay safe is all about engagement and the simple fact is that the workplace safety instructor continues to be one of the most important elements in the process of teaching and worker learning.
While the level of experience may vary between instructors, all workplace safety instructors share a common objective to create safer and more productive places to work.
A healthy and safe place to work matters to everyone and the safety instructor plays a critical role no matter how big, or small the workplace is.
Every good employer expects their workplace instructor to be a leader, and so do the people they teach. The best safety Instructors are clear that safety is a personal value to them. To teach safety well, you must make it personal. People know when you’re just going through the motions.
Safety instructors are forthright about their commitment to safety and they relentlessly drive the message in all they do. Safety needs to be a personal value that influences all decisions.
Safety instructors engage their co-workers in understanding how to make the safe decision so that they own and control their safety. Instructors want workers to know that safety is valued, it is an essential aspect of how work gets done, and that every worker is a critical part of the overall safety effort in their workplace.
Whether you are interacting with colleagues, subordinates, or managers, communicating effectively is important, but the communication that takes place between the safety instructor and their students in the classroom is essential. There is not much point in conveying information, without stimulating students’ motivation to learn and develop understanding.
The classroom is a place to communicate your passion and to show your students how you feel about safety. The OH&S Registry has the Instructor Certification training that you need to deliver safety programs at your job site. Call Today!
Train The Trainer
The train-the-trainer model is a framework for training participants to become Certified Professional Instructors (CPI). The CPI designation enables the instructor to deliver safety training programs to other workers internally in their organizations.
In other words, an employee or group of employees participate in an Instructor Certification Course (ICC) that teaches them how to deliver training content to other employees. The train-the-trainer model focuses both on training the instructor (ICC) and the specific training content (a safety program) to be imparted to their co-workers.
For example, a subject matter expert – Instructor Trainer (IT) teaches a select group of employee participants during an Instructor Certification Course (ICC) how to use facilitation skills and simultaneously teaches them how to teach other employees about the specific content of an OH&S Registry safety program (fall protection, confined space, equipment operator).
The expected outcome is that participants of the Instructor Certification Course (ICC) learn facilitation skills and the new knowledge that they will instruct in the workplace classroom to other employees of their organization.
The train-the-trainer approach proliferated during World War II, when factories needed to train a largely new workforce quickly while enabling trainees to pass their skills along to other co-workers. The train-the-trainer process has been standardized to the point where, no matter where a participant attends an initial instructor certification course, they will receive the same instruction, in the same format, from the same training manual. Of course, the skills and practical exercises taught in the training will be tailored to a specific industry or workplace topic, but the course format and process remain the same.
The core advantage of the train-the-trainer model is its effectiveness to teach new skills and knowledge to an instructor during an Instructor Certification Course who can then scale training delivery of a specific safety topic to their co-workers.
Industrial Safety Trainers Canada
The term Industrial Safety Trainers Canada is used to identify an individual within an organization who is responsible for educating employees about their roles and responsibilities in keeping the workplace safe. This begins from the first day an employee joins the team and continues until their last day. Industrial safety trainers know the occupational regulations and are the first to know of changes to company safety rules, which means it’s their job to teach employees about what’s expected of them. The industrial Safety Trainer participates in an Instructor Certification Course (ICC) to become a Certified Professional Instructor (CPI). The CPI designation enables the Industrial Safety Trainer to deliver OH&S Registry programs to co-workers internally in their organizations.
