Laboratory Safety Starts With Communication

Laboratory safety refers to a lot of things. It can refer to the protocol for handling chemicals, operating heavy machinery and even communication. How we communicate with each other usually varies on the situation. But the primary goal is to relay a message, and ensure it was received in the manner intended. Certain things can make it more difficult to understand, especially in a working environment. As a business owner that works in a laboratory, your main objective is to ensure worker safety and many of them tend to have a goal to improve communication. But what if we told you that worker safety and communication aren't separate things? Here's how we can help...

Employee English Class and Safety In Factories

Employee English class is as much about worker safety as it is about improving communication. Typically, blue collar manufacturing businesses tend to hire more ESL workers (who speak English as a Second Language). As a business owner, you have a responsibility to provide every worker with a safe working environment. Usually this means going over the safety trainings again, having proper signage throughout the workspace etc. Business owners and decision makers should be prepared to take additional steps to ensure worker safety. If an ESL employee is struggling with pronunciation, how can they communicate to the rest of their team? If they can't understand terminology needed for their job, how can you trust they can follow instruction? Especially in big factories, communication is as much about safety as any other protocol you are required to follow.

Corporate ESL Courses Keep Hospitals Safe

Corporate ESL courses do a lot more than teach English. At least ours do- we can't speak for the other ones. You know, the pre-recorded. ones. And they all have a million videos that go too fast and too slow all at the same time. That's something that sets us apart from the competition. All of our remote courses are taught 100% LIVE ✅ through video-chat webinars. Meaning your employees receive all the convenience of remote learning, AND all the benefits of a traditional classroom experience. Why do we do this? Because we believe the best learning happens in real time✅; not through a book or on your own. As hospital owners and decision makers, ensuring the safety of your patients and workers is a top priority... At least we hope so. When it's time to think about workplace safety, we tend to think in terms of practicality. Surgeons wash their hands before procedures. Doctors wear masks and scrub in. We ensure all surfaces and tools are sterilized and prepared. There are procedures and protocols to follow for all of this... because ensuring safety is a priority. So then how are corporate ESL courses (that teach English as a Second Language) keeping hospitals safe as well?

Employee English Courses Should Be Your Company Resolution

Employee English courses should never be one size fits all. Every employee learns at a different pace, and requires a different approach when learning new information. Some retain information better when it is demonstrated and others need to write something out or explain it themselves to achieve understanding. There is neither a "right way" nor a "wrong way" there are just differences, and they are all valid. So when decision makers and leaders sit down to formulate new goals for their employees, it is important to have a good understanding of how they each learn. Especially when creating goals and development plans, leaders need to take their employees capabilities into consideration. Making sure that goals are attainable and that they have clear methods of tracking progress is essential. So as we move through the new year, what kinds of language training goals can you set for employees?
