How effective are your training materials?
It is Pesticide Safety Education Month! The Environmental Protection Agency brings awareness to Pesticide Safety Training every February. On their website, they offer tips for everyone, from business owners to pest management professionals to homeowners, to use pesticides responsibly. However, effective and consistent trainings are key to always being successful product stewards.
No matter what industry you work in, trainings can be challenging. As the trainer, creating and delivering materials that are compelling and convey all of the critical information can be overwhelming. As the trainee, sitting through hours of dry information, some of which you have seen before, can feel mind numbing. However, continued education is vital to ensure consistent results while keeping personnel and homeowners safe.
You may consider taking this month as an opportunity to review your training materials and ask yourself, “What can I do to make this more engaging?” Investing resources to create the best training experience as possible helps everyone stay safe and helps you grow your business by building trust with your customers through reliable results.
