Welcome to Autumn 2013
After the great summer of 2013 it is a good time to reflect on your health and safety and training needs for the coming months.
The unfortunate fact is that there have been 33 deaths so far this year in the Irish workplace. The question is why? We can consider systems failure, process failure and personnel failure to be part of the reason. The simple fact is that training and education are proven to raise the risk awareness. The common complaint from staff is that “we have done this before” and, therefore, they are approaching the provision of training from a negative perspective.
Have you considered carrying out a Training Needs Analysis? A Training Needs Analysis. or TNA for short, is a measurement tool for establishing what training is needed on an Organisational, Occupational and Individual basis. We can assist in identifying the Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes (KSA) that is required for each job and, then, the gaps in the KSA. The TNA encompasses all training aspects including soft skills, such as, communications, customer relationships, diversity training, as well as more practise centred skills such as Manual Handling or First Aid.
The cost factors of carrying out the TNA are relatively low and the cost benefit analysis that accompanies the TNA will indicate the value for money that is achievable. To prepare a TNA, there are a number of steps involved. Step 1: We request a job descriptions for each person – don’t worry of you don’t have them as we can assist you in writing them. Step 2: A meeting with management to determine what skill sets are required for the job and Step 3: A meeting with the individual staff member who completes a simple questionnaire. EMS can provide a tailored Training Needs Analysis and Training Solution for each member of staff as required.
