Worker Participation in Developing Training Programs

Training programs help ensure that safe jobs are no accident. Safe jobs exist because employers make a conscious decision, each and every day of the year, to make protecting workers a priority in the workplace. When this e ort includes participation from workers, workplace injury and illness prevention programs are improved because workers can identify missing safety procedures, make recommendations for changes and help ensure a safe workplace. When workers have a voice in the workplace and input about how training is developed, training programs are more accurately focused on speci c workplace hazards.

Readers with questions concerning worker safety and health training should contact their OSHA Regional or Area listed at the end of this publication.
