Conducting Effective Warehouse Safety Training

See Dojo360

More than 145,000 people work in warehouses according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and its fatality rate is higher than the national average for all industries. Some of the industry-specific dangers include forklift accidents, fire (including chemical fires), improper product stacking resulting in injury or death, and repetitive motion injuries. As such, it's important for your organization to develop effective warehouse safety training materials to keep your team members safe on the floor.

Any warehouse safety program has to meet the needs of its audience, which means that traditional classroom training probably isn't the right fit. Your employees lead busy lives and they don't have the time to travel to seminars and listen to boring lectures that don't relate to their day-to-day jobs. Dojo360 is a learning engagement platform developed by the experts at Turning to bring online and hybrid learning to the next level. It leverages our e³ philosophy of equity, evidence, and engagement to make learning engaging and practical. Continue reading for further details!

What Features Do I Need to Facilitate Online Warehouse Safety Training?

Your team members need to understand how the content of your training materials can keep them safe in the workplace, which means providing those materials when and where they will be most useful. Content on Dojo360 is mobile-friendly, allowing employees to bring up a quick refresher on how to operate a forklift or navigate chemical spills whenever they need one.

  1. Engagement Tools

    The best warehouse safety training won't accomplish anything if learners don't pay attention to it, so our platform includes numerous features to promote engagement. For instance, instructors can build interactive elements such as inline quizzes to break up large blocks of information to make them easier to digest. Gamification elements also provide added incentive to pay attention during courses.

  2. Collaboration Tools

    Your employees have to work as a team for smooth operations, so your warehouse safety program should include collaboration as well. Dojo360 includes a virtual whiteboard, online meeting spaces, and message boards to help synchronous and asynchronous share best practices across your organization. You can also create a remote mentorship program so experienced veterans can help fresh hires.

  3. Reporting Tools

    Offering courses and having employees take them can be two different things, so Dojo360 lets stakeholders know if a specific team member isn't attending or completing mandatory content. Learner assessments are also scored automatically and sent to an intuitive dashboard so you have the evidence you need to help struggling learners. Learners receive immediate feedback on assignments as well, making it easier to identify if they need extra support.

  4. Automated Course Enrollment

    Many warehouses have a lot of personnel and you might not have the time to manually enroll each one in all of the courses they need. Our platform can identify what courses each learner needs based on their personalized learning path or compliance regulations and automatically sign them up to save valuable admin time. Likewise, learners can proactively enroll in courses that advance their career goals and improve company morale through upskilling and reskilling opportunities.

  5. Accessibility

    One unsafe worker can compromise the efficacy of everyone else's warehouse safety training, so equity in access to training materials is vital. Dojo360 meets or even exceeds all WCAG 2.0 guidelines, ensuring that even technologically-challenged workers can make the most of their training materials. Furthermore, live classes are recorded so that asynchronous learners can review them later.

What if I Like My Current Warehouse Safety Program?

You can have the best of both worlds, adding accountability, reporting, and all of our other features to your existing training. Any Microsoft PowerPoint presentations your organization uses for warehouse safety training can be imported to Dojo360, making it easier to edit as needed. Dojo360 also integrates with LMS and LXP systems, including custom solutions that competing products may struggle to connect with. As such, it's easy to transfer anything on ergonomics or another topic that you'd like to continue using.

A warehouse can be a dangerous place, so your organization cannot afford mediocre training. When good enough training isn't good enough, Dojo360's extensive feature list makes it the perfect go-to tool to rely on.
