Abstract
The impact of occupational safety training programs on worker safety was reviewed. A review of studies on the effectiveness of training programs indicated that knowledge about safety information increased after training as did positive attitudes regarding safety. Increases in safe behavior after participating in safety training programs have also been reported and positive changes were seen in all but one of 23 studies using training with feedback. Problems with the outcome measures and training designs used in the studies reviewed were examined. Four characteristics that were seen as consistently promoting safe work practices included needs assessment, program development, goal setting, and feedback. The authors recommend that injury records be used as a source for identifying safety hazards that may be corrected through training along with occupational safety and health standards, operating manuals, manufacturers' recommendations, workplace observations, and employer and employee discussions.
