Effective Safety Training and Messaging: How to Best Develop Learning Objectives So Your Training Is Engaging and OSHA Compliant - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to develop effective safety training and messaging.


Many OSHA regulations include training requirements that specify the goals of training such as demonstrate understanding and comprehension, practice a skill, or verify the competent performance of a task safely. They also specify the topics that must be covered in the training. Failure to meet these goals could result in noncompliance.

Employee training is a constant challenge for safety professionals. An effective and OSHA-compliant training program must have clearly understood objectives and instructional strategies that will meet OSHA requirements and engage workers. A major step to take before training even starts is identify learning objectives. These should be specific, measurable, and clearly communicated to the training audience. Learning objectives give your audience a clear idea of what they’re going to learn and how they will know they’ve learned it. Everything that follows (discussions, group exercises, activities, case studies, etc.) must directly support the learning objectives.

For example, OSHA emphasizes that safety training goals should be absolutely clear and put into written, action-oriented, specific language. An objective such as "being able to use a fire extinguisher" is too vague for fire extinguisher training. A stronger objective is: "An employee will be able to tell where the fire extinguishers are located, which classification to use for which types of fires, and demonstrate how to operate a fire extinguisher safely." Then you have to develop a training program that accomplishes those objectives in a way that engages employees and ensures compliance with OSHA rules.

Use this on-demand webinar to see if your program measures up.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize the levels of learning – knowledge, comprehension, application, synthesis, and attitude
  • Develop effective learning objectives that meet OSHA requirements
  • Match desired outcomes or employee actions to training objectives
  • Apply the appropriate mix of instructional strategies that engage workers


By the end of this webinar, you’ll have answers to many common questions, such as:

  • How can I use or enhance employee training programs to empower and engage workers in safe work practices?
  • What are some examples or best practices to engage employees in safe practices?
