  • Subject of the issue - Practical examples for interesting OSH training
    Is it possible to conduct OSH training without a presentation? Many trainers cannot imagine such a situation. And it is possible. Presentations play an important role: they contain a training plan and the most important information and define its framework. However, if showing it becomes the main way to conduct classes, you can be doomed to failure. Only 10% of the information we hear is remembered. Acquiring knowledge by doing or sharing it with others can increase up to 90%. It is therefore necessary to prepare the training so that it corresponds to the natural ways of adult learning. Training sessions during which the students sit and listen are a thing of the past. More and more companies are focusing on quality and choosing active forms of learning, and people conducting OSH training use various methods to interest training participants.

To avoid this, regulations give employees the right to refrain from work, which may take the form of a legal obligation in specific situations. The employer's role is to ensure that you can refrain from work until you remove the threat. Otherwise, the employer risks not only that the employee will have an accident but also that a labor inspector will appear at the workplace with all the consequences arising from such a visit.
