Stop Wasting Your Safety Training Budget

Stop wasting your safety training budget.

Need help to think of ways to optimize the use of your training budget?

Sometimes we have the splendor of working for a company that says, “Safety is priceless, whatever budget you need to make it happen, you get.” More than likely, this is not the case.

Discovering what you need and planning accordingly is a salient piece of not wasting your safety budget.


“If you don’t know where you are going,

you’ll end up someplace else.”

― Yogi Berra

It’s No Secret…

It’s no secret that work-related incidents and injuries can cost your company big money. No matter your industry, there are inherent risks and hazards that your workers face. Some are higher risk than others, but risk and hazards still exist. Commonly we see slips and falls, motor vehicle incidents, muscle strains, and—who would have guessed it—people walking into objects. These are just a few of the most common reported work-related injuries.

Back to the Budget

I remember as a child, my mom and dad used to tell me to be careful what I spent my money on, I just may not have any left for what I really want (in some cases what I really need).

In theory, this concept is pretty simple. Use your money wisely. Same goes for business. Don’t just check off training and CEUs on your checklist. Plan accordingly. Spend your safety training budget on something useful. Something you and your team NEED. IF you do not have a safety training budget, make a case to management of why you need training. How will the training affect the company positively? Provide a timeline. Set goals. If you don’t know where to start, I am happy to help! Creating a roadmap is one of the first steps in the process.
