What are some of your top training tips?

The National Safety Council has designated June as National Safety Month, and we at HCPro are planning many things to celebrate you – the people who help make the healthcare workplace safer. That’s where we need your help.

I plan to start in Medical Environment Update by compiling some of the Top Training Strategies employed by clinics and labs across America. I know you’re busy people, and it’s often hard to spend a lot of time training. I’d like to give readers a list of some of the best ways to train their employees to be safer, even if they only have a few minutes to devote to it. What are your strategies and programs you’ve created?

Next – it’s almost summertime! It’s time to start thinking of ways to keep your staff and patients cool and safe during hot weather – and the warm weather brings with it its own unique safety issues as well. I’d like to hear about some of the things you do in your own facilities to keep safe and cool during the summer.

As always, I thank you for your readership and keeping the world safe out there!
