Highlights From ATD’s Safety Training Research
Speaker: Alex Moore and Elizabeth Beckham
More than $161 billion—that’s how much preventable work injuries cost the U.S. economy in 2017, according to an estimate from the National Safety Council. Organizations clearly have room for improvement when it comes to employee safety. Many companies turn to safety training, which includes training that is required by law and instruction that organizations offer without legally being required to do so. According to the ATD Research report Safety Training: Protecting Employees and Organizations, 90 percent of organizations offer safety training, and among these, 88 percent say reduction of safety incidents is one of the top benefits.
