Choosing Microlearning for Safety
No matter what the industry, if there’s one word that consistently describes safety managers, it’s busy. It takes an incredible amount of attention and juggling to keep track of all that you do for the people who rely on you to help them stay safe. That level of overload can make crucial tasks like safety training a double-edged sword. It’s beneficial for you and your people, but it takes time out of your busy schedule and theirs.
While most safety managers have a library of training classes that they collect through the years, there will always be new topics and regulations to cover, and it never hurts to offer something your employees haven’t seen before. Safety training can be made easy by downloading ready-to-use presentations from the internet. You can make safety training more effective by supplementing your formal training with microlearning.
What is Microlearning?
Microlearning is training that’s broken down into short segments—usually between 30 seconds and 5 minutes long. It’s like a YouTube video.
“If someone wants to learn how to do something super quick, they say, ‘Let’s go to YouTube and find the shortest video!’ Microlearning is similar,” said Dayna Nota, Manager of Training and Development at Magid.
Every safety manager knows it can be hard to keep people’s full attention in safety training, even when you’re talking about matters of life and death. Microlearning gets around that by being brief and to the point, and if possible, entertaining.
