What Do You Get?
One Quiz and one Answer Key for each Weekly Safety Meeting we publish for Standard Subscription or Premium Membership. The Quiz questions are all True/False or Multiple Choice answers, and the answer to every question is in the Weekly Safety Meeting. You don't have to know or prepare any extra information in order to use the Quizzes. The Answer Key even includes the quote from the Meeting that answers the question.
Why Purchase Quizzes?
Your people will learn more, retain more, and be safer. You get better, stronger training documentation.
Adding Quizzes to your safety training efforts can make a big difference to how much your employees learn and retain. Being at a safety meeting is great, but if you're people don't pay attention and retain what you talk about, they may not be any safer when they go back out to the job.
Better Learning: Just knowing that there will be (or might be) a Quiz makes most people pay more attention during your safety meeting. Paying attention is a big part of the battle. When your people take the Quiz, they have to read the questions, read the answers, and write down their answers. Those three steps mean that your people are using two more "channels" and two more parts of their brains to process safety info. Using more channels and thinking multiple times increases leaning and retention. Finally, if you go over the answers with your crew, they hear the information again.
Stronger Documentation: Quizzes move you from documenting attendance up to demonstrating understanding. When an employee writes down an answer to a question about having to wear eye protection, the claim "I didn't know I was supposed to wear safety glasses..." just doesn't hold much water.
How Does It Work?
Quizzes are included with Premium Membership; they are attached to the e-mail message you receive each month. If you receive Standard Subscription, you'll need to download the Quizzes from our website.
