In 2014, 3739 fatal work-related accidents happened in the EU. Many of those could have been prevented by informing employees of the dangers and hazards involved in their line of work. Ideally, this is done in a one or more training sessions.
Making sure that employees retain the knowledge they acquired during a training session is as important as the training itself. Some studies report that after just one week the average employee has retained only 80% of what they were taught. That rate falls steadily until, months later, as little as 10 to 20% remains.
That’s where a safety quiz comes in.
Establishing a “Quiz Culture” can slow these rates between training sessions immensely. This can be combined with interactive solutions like personalized emails after certain periods of time, giving access to new course-subjects, rewarding good grades with an incentive, etc…
Safety quizzes are supplementary and are not meant as a replacement for required, on-site workplace training.
