According to OSHA, “education and training are important tools for informing workers and managers about workplace hazards and controls so they can work more safely and be more productive.” This provides workers, managers, and supervisors with:

  • A greater understanding of the safety and health program so that they can contribute to its continuing development and use,
  • Knowledge and skills needed to do their work safely and avoid creating hazards that could place themselves or others at risk,
  • Awareness and understanding of workplace hazards and how to identify, report and control them, and
  • Specialized training when their work involves unique hazards.

Importantly, OSHA points out that effective “training and education can be provided outside a formal classroom setting. Peer-to-peer training, on-the-job training, and worksite demonstrations can be effective in conveying safety concepts, ensuring understanding of hazards and their controls, and promoting good work practices.”
