Safety In The Workplace Course

Safety In The Workplace Course: Introduction

This course deals with identifying hazards and finding solutions for them and includes ways to make the workplace safe.

Safety In The Workplace Course :Course Outline

Health and safety legislation differs from country to country but all employers who live in countries where there is legislation – which is just about global – are legally obligated to provide a safe working environment for their employees. If employers cannot eliminate the hazard, it must be minimised. There are a number of ways employers can do this such as warning employees about hazards, using chemical sheets, codes, alarms and labels. Employers may also test air samples and provide medical tests and exams when necessary. An up to date record of injuries at work must be kept. Ergonomics improves productivity while decreasing the injury rate by teaching employees to put less strain on their bodies. Ergonomics includes factors like bending from the knees and lifting heavy objects with your legs. We discuss violence in the workplace as pertains to health and safety, we recommend attending the Violence in the Workplace workshop presented by us for a more comprehensive study of workplace violence. Violent behaviour in the workplace accounts for a quarter of work related deaths.TIP: An effective safety plan includes four fundamentals: Analysis: Identify and eliminate or reduce any hazards, reassess this regularly. Involvement: Both employees and managers need to be involved in the safety plan. Maintenance: Keep equipment maintained and train employees how to use them. Training: Train employees on different aspects of safety and hold emergency drills. A safe work environment can only be established if the hazards are known, regular inspections of the workplace are necessary for any changes and to make sure the policies and procedures are being followed. When hazards are identified it is important to prioritise them as immediate, serious or minor. Hazards and deficiencies must be reported, addressed and followed up on. The health and safety policy of the company should include company policy on alcohol and drug addiction. This could include a program or resources for employees and managers who need help. The company policy should include which substances are banned; drug testing parameters and the consequences for violating the policy. Many companies have a no tolerance policy accompanied with drug testing that may mean that if the policy is violated once the employee could be terminated immediately. Other companies send employees for rehabilitation after a first time positive, if the policy is violated a second time the employee is terminated. We end our workshop with a module showing participants how to write a safety plan for their company, including the role of management and of employees and how to make sure that accidents are properly investigated.

Human Resource Management Course

Human Resource Management Course: Introduction

The face of Human Resources has changed drastically, we offer this course for all who need training in Human Resource management.

Human Resource Management Course :Course Outline

What used to be the personnel manager or even the payroll manager has blossomed in the last fifty or so years to become a specialized career of its own. Most companies these days have an established human resources department and a step beyond that are companies who have a corporate resources department of which human resources is a part. The key factors which influence human resources today are technology; globalization; demographics and contingent workforce management. As human resources has changed so has the way we manage our workforce, some current trends in human resources are onboarding employees and proactive recruitment which we have dealt with in previous workshops. This workshop will provide managers with the tools to control various human resources situations successfully, such as interviewing new employees, orientating of new employees, safety at work, harassment situations, discrimination, violence at work, discipline and termination of employees. We begin by teaching participants how to actively recruit new employees, from the initial interview to orientation, following up and retention of staff. We next discuss HR’s role in workplace health and safety and bring you up to date with the industry rules and regulations pertaining to several industries in South Africa. Also falling under health and safety are the policies regarding workplace bullying, harassment and violence. We discuss each employee’s personal role, and the role of HR and management in the company.TIP: Bulling is considered as intimidation or abuse of authority. Harassment is related to protected areas including: gender, age, race, religion, sexual orientation or disability. We move on to wellness trends in modern companies. This focuses on the employee as whole, when employees are fit and healthy they are less likely to be absent and more engaged and productive in their work. We will explore the concept of workplace wellness and how to promote in your company. Wellness addresses the physical, cognitive and psychological health of employees; this includes issues that can originate at work or at home.Feedback from employees and management is also a significant part of HR. We will explore different feedback models as well some ways to make your feedback effective and encouraging. The performance review and the feedback sandwich are examples of formal feedback. Informal feedback is done privately as you never criticize an employee in front of others, the flip side is positive feedback which is also done privately, recognition for work properly applied or a small reward for overall performance are two examples. Lastly we look at HR’s role in discipline. We discuss general discipline procedures, progressive discipline and discipline meetings. We round off by discussing termination of employees, documenting events, making a decision and communicating the decision to the employee.

Employee Recognition Course

Employee Recognition Course: Introduction

We teach participants in this course how to recognise the achievements of their employees.

Employee Recognition Course :Course Outline

  • Walmart have a particularly good program for employee recognition.
  • They guard their secrets with their very lives, but it is possible to find out how Walmart does it, and how you could emulate their program.
  • We have all seen the ‘free recognition’ memes on Facebook and other social platforms. The Employee of the Month photo on the big whiteboard which, while pronouncing Ben to be the employee of the month, also sports a litany of messages to Ben, all of which are funny. See what they did right there?
  • The original stodgy Employee of the Month award nobody looks at twice, is now examined by everybody working at that Walmart and everybody on social networks who see the post.
  • Ben isn’t just getting a high five from his team leader, his colleagues have injected humour and elevated the recognition from something pertaining to one store in one town to a global market.
  • That’s good PR, but then again, Walmart are known for it.
  • Anyway, Walmart levels of recognition are what we are aiming to teach you.
  • In this workshop we will teach you to assess the type of Employee Recognition program your company needs, we will show you how to train leaders to recognize their employees.
  • You will know when and where recognition is needed and we will give you the skills to maintain your employee recognition program.
  • We will kick things off by examining the different types of incentives will best suit your company, your budget and your employees.
  • In module three we will help you design a program appropriate to your company.
  • We all know what the SMART method is, we will now introduce the SMART format. This is an acronym for Sincere, Meaningful, Adaptable, Relevant and Timely.
  • The most important consideration must be the budget, you do not want to implement a reward program this year only to withdraw it next year due to budget constraints.
  • TIP: A great idea for on the spot recognition would be providing managers with company cards. The goal of employee recognition is to increase the repetition of desirable behaviour, so the reward must fit whatever is being recognized. The team leader on a gold mine shift would require a very different sort of recognition; especially one that fits with his culture.
  • We wrap our workshop up by introducing a few ideas for small gestures of recognition that will be applicable to any company. We tell you when to roll out the red carpet and last but not least we end with a list of don’ts and maintenance of your program.
