    December Safety Workshops: Make Some Noise for Safety Training

    Sit comfortably at your desk as Montana State Fund safety services specialist Kirk Smith presents his virtual December safety workshop, “Make Some Noise for Safety Training” via Zoom.


    How will the workshops be run?
    The virtual workshops will include two topics, with one topic presented in the morning and the second topic in the afternoon. Each session will be scheduled for two hours with a break.  This breakdown gives participants time to step away from their computer to avoid any ergonomic or eye strain issues.


    All Ears – In this section we will discuss the elements of a successful hearing conservation program. We will cover the physical attributes of the human ear, how hearing damage occurs, and the effect various levels of sound have on our hearing. We will then address the best way to determine if your employees are exposed to harmful noise levels, actions to limit these levels and the proper way to use hearing protection.

     Safety Training – One of managements greatest tasks is to create effective safety trainings.  In this section we will explore various training opportunities, introduce you to unique training methods, and discuss the philosophy behind safety training. We will then open the floor to participants as they talk about the challenges and accomplishments of safety trainings at their workplaces.
