Deliver warehouse safety training on the spot with WSPS’ 8 new streamable videos

Jul 29, 2016

Warehouse safety training"This is the future of awareness training," says WSPS consultant Norm Kramer. He's talking about eight new videos available on WSPS' own YouTube Channel and on our Videos section. Averaging four minutes each, the videos offer professional insights into distinct aspects of warehouse safety. All you need is a laptop, tablet or smart phone.

Why Norm Kramer is keen on these videos as an awareness tool

Short videos offer seven essential benefits that can invigorate your training program: they

  1. offer flexibility. The short duration and easy-access format allow people to view them anywhere, any time, at their own pace, and as often as they like
  2. extend your training reach, so that employees working in other locations have equal access. This is particularly valuable for workplaces with multiple locations or people who are always on the go
  3. accommodate different learning styles. People remember 10% of what they hear, 30% of what they read, and 80% of what they see. Videos can incorporate all of these learning styles
  4. share knowledge, establishing a common understanding of the right way to do things, and what not to do
  5. engage viewers through real-world settings and hazards
  6. start conversations, one-on-one or in a group setting. Viewers can discuss what they saw, ask questions, review best practices, identify opportunities to improve how things are done, and more

What they cover

Each of these topics is worth repeat viewing:

How to integrate the warehouse safety videos into your training program
