Note: In part one, The High Cost of No Training, you learned the many consequences to organizations that don’t train employees. In part two, find out the upside to training and how to get started. How Employee Training Can Benefit Your Organization Helping employees build skills and knowledge has
Training is important to workers and organizations alike. In fact, in a Workforce Learning Report from LinkedIn, 94% of employees said they would stay at a company longer if the company invested in employee learning. Whether frontline workers in healthcare, heavy equipment operators on a job site, or back
Why do pilots and physicians train with simulations? Because they can learn better and faster. Pilots were some of the first to use simulators—including the military. Pilots can train in the safety of a virtual environment and never put passengers at risk while learning how to use instruments and
Heavy equipment operators inside a cab often have restricted visibility or blind spots. A blind spot means the operator cannot see by direct line of site or by using mirrors. “Struck by” accidents cause many injuries and accidents every year. Heavy equipment operators must learn and be aware of
The most expensive part on a tracked dozer or excavator is the undercarriage, representing 50% of the machine’s owning and operating costs. Proper use of the machine can extend the life of the undercarriage. An operator should be ultra-tuned into the machine. How it looks, how it sounds and how
When choosing a simulator, it’s important to consider the method by which the simulator records and reports the results of user training sessions. The simulator should include robust software that tracks, measures and reports results based on benchmarks set within the simulator. Performance data allows instructors, training managers and
A question many organizations are asking: Does VR training really work when it comes to safety? You bet it does. Just ask Tyson Foods. In 2017, the company set a goal of reducing injuries by 15%. They had a VR program developed to drive safety and hazard awareness training.
Simulation training is highly successful when it comes to engaging learners and teaching how to perform tasks, techniques, or processes. The ability to train multiple people in the same way, expose them to real-world situations in the safety of the virtual environment, makes simulation training an
