Safety training commitments…please forgive me while I vent a bit here.
Why is it that people consistently ask for safety training, quality safety training, economical safety training, flexible safety training, etc. and then when you put a class on, or offer it up to those individuals, they then change their mind and say they don’t want it or need it? Or they say they will commit but when the date/time come, they are suddenly too busy or not able to attend the training after all. This is so frustrating to me.
So let me put this out to the masses; what do you do to help ensure that when you are offering a training course people not only commit but show up and attend? Charging for the class, or getting a deposit up front does not always work. So as safety professionals, who do we overcome these behaviors and get people in those seats?
