More from your investment in Health and Safety training

What are the benefits?

– Increased awareness of Health and Safety issues and practices across the organisation

– Greater level of reporting of minor incidents (which if left unchecked often result in a serious incident)

– Reduction in formal training costs

– Reduction in time spent “off the job” by employees

– Faster and more effective on-boarding and induction process

– Improved audit, reporting and management data


What’s the Problem?

Meeting both the operational demands and the commercial drivers of any business is a constant challenge. It’s especially tough for organisations that are required to scale up the workforce rapidly and cost effectively but still ensure that the highest standards of health and safety are met. When you combine the pressure for operational efficiency and the drive for a reduction in expenditure, with a legal and ethical requirement to ensure Health and Safety of your employees, it’s not surprising that those operating in high risk environments are looking for both a cost efficient and a highly effective alternative to the costly and traditional “sheep dip” approach to training.


How can you Solve it?

Cognisco shows organisations smarter, faster and more cost effective ways to address the challenge.

Putting fewer people through formal training and yet achieving a higher awareness and understanding of Health and Safety issues practices and procedures across the operation.

Gaining a clearer understanding of where formal training interventions are actually required (rather than delivered by default) and where more informal (and less costly) coaching and learning approaches can deliver better results.

Providing the organisation with the means to track, manage, monitor and report on individual employee’s current level of Health and Safety knowledge and understanding.


How does that work?

Traditional approaches to training assume that everybody has the same level of knowledge and understanding, that the same approach to training will net the right result for everybody and that the best way to gain understanding and compliance across the organisation is to put every employee through the same process.

As a result, training is often “optimised” to minimise the time off the job and to suit the needs of an assumed lowest common denominator.

Cognisco can evidence that formal training is not only not required for a number of employees in any organisation, but that it is often either entirely ineffective or at worst detrimental.

Cognisco’s expert Occupational Psychologist consultants and our team will work with you to

– Review and assess existing and planned training interventions and learning materials to ensure they are aligned to address the specific needs and requirements of your staff and the operational and commercial objectives of the organisation.

– Deliver insights and recommendations that will evidence if and where efficiencies and improvements could be achieved.


Where appropriate we will also

Design a new style of assessment that will discover and expose the specific gaps in employee knowledge and understanding that may be more efficiently addressed by lower cost interventions.

– Provide your staff with my*KNOW to access and take small, regular and focussed assessments and direct them to the specific learning tools and information they need to plug any gaps.

– Provide your team leaders and managers my*KNOW’s intuitive dashboard reporting to enable then to identify and address development or coaching issues before they become a problem.

– Enable the wider organisation to structure, plan and budget training for the future and to manage, monitor, mitigate and report both Health and Safety compliance and any potential risks using my*KNOW reports.

It's true that traditional approaches to training assume the same level of experience of all learners. I'm pleased that many training centres are now recognising that this isn't the case and each individual learner must work at their own pace.
