What are the benefits of becoming a Safety Training Instructor? Increasingly workplaces are required to provide specific safety training to their emloyees. It is no longer acceptable to simply send an employee to a generic safety class. The workers must be taught about the job specific safety rules, and procedures. Additionally, the employer must determine if the worker is competent in the task. For example, in the case of fall protection, the employer must observe the worker using the fall protection equipment and ensure they are using it properly. They must record this and keep a record.
