Providing Travel Safety Training: Video Transcript
How often do you believe it’s necessary for an organisation to provide Travel Safety training?
The good thing is I think that most people understand now that they need to provide Travel Safety training for their employees when they travel. We’ve moved from face to face to eLearning to video-based training, lots of different ways to do it.
I think this is evolving again, and it’s not every year or every six months that we sit and we undertake the training. With the applications that we have now, where you can just watch a video, if you’re about to get on a flight, you can learn “How can I stay safe getting on the flight?” You don’t need to watch a whole series of videos and understand what it’s like to travel on boats – you only need to watch what’s relevant.
You can keep dipping in and dipping out – it’s training on demand. If you’re about to get in a taxi, or you’re travelling to a country that you’re not sure about, find out how to research that country. You can watch it on your mobile phone, so you can just pick it up as you go.
I think that continual learning that is relevant to each trip will always improve what you take in. I think it’s something like 80% [of learned information] is lost after a month of training, so why train once a year? Or twice a year? Have a continuous approach, dipping in and dipping out, and technology allows us to do this now.
