TWH Principle 3 and Training Games and Activities
Total Worker Health (TWH) is a top priority, or very soon will be, for many organizations. The five principles of TWH as defined by the CDC are shown below and can also be found on the NIOSH TWH page. Hopefully the third principle, Promote and support worker engagement throughout program design and implementation,” jumped out at you as much as it did for me in the way that it aligns with safety training games and activities as a way of adding interactivity and communicating important safety and health information.
Do you create and deliver training related to Total Worker Health? If so, do you have any tips or ideas to share with other subscribers? Please comment below.

Make Your Safety Training Stick! Increase Retention and Get Better Results by Linda Tapp is now available on Amazon and through the ASSP Bookstore.
Safety training is only effective as long as it is remembered and put into action. Make Your Safety Training Stick explains and demonstrates proven methods for helping trainees to remember more of what they learn. Unlike other training, the results of ineffective delivery of safety and health information can result in serious accidents or worse. For this reason alone, safety trainers need to know how to ensure their training is remembered and ultimately used in the workplace so everyone can work more safely.
The techniques covered in this book can be used within any industry and by anyone responsible for creating and delivering safety training. The methods presented are flexible and can be adapted to any audience regardless of educational level or industry. Trainees will no longer dread attending safety training classes, and trainers can be confident that their training efforts are making a difference.
