Training Needs AssessmentDetermining Training Requirements

  • Self assessment

  • Job title

  • Academic class

  • Special Group

Self Assessment - Selecting EHS Activities/ Linking to Training

  • Use potentially hazardous chemicals in a lab

    • General Chemical Hygiene - initial

    • Lab Specific Chem Hygiene- annual

    • Read Chem Hygiene Plan – initial

    • Managing Hazardous Waste – annual

  • Department customization

Top 5 ehs activities 7800 total people 2000 this fy

Training needs assessment accuracy
Training Needs Assessment Accuracy Training

  • “Work in a noisy environment” – 16% over reported (13/80)

  • Radiation safety – 25% of those who took course did not select EHS Activity (1 Dept)

  • How many people have not taken needs assessment but need to? Estimate 300 people

Communication of training metrics
Communication of Training Metrics Training

  • Ongoing – Dept. Assessment Report gives PI and lab group training completion rates

    • Coord and LC can look at dept metrics anytime

    • Should look at least 2x/yr before inspections

  • Special

    • External audit- Reps, PI’s, Dept.heads, Asst. Deans

    • Balanced Scorecard Initiative – course focus

  • Sensitivity

Training technology support
Training Technology Support Training

  • The cost of ownership for the EHS-MS Training System includes ongoing technical support

    • Internal = 1-2 FTEs

    • MIT IS&T = 1 FTE

Ehs training triage
EHS Training Triage Training

  • 44% of all email requests for assistancereceived by the EHS Officerequest tracking system are training technology questions:

    • Browser settings

    • MIT personal certificates

    • Automated email notifications – turning off or clarifying training requirement

    • Credit for classroom training

Training metrics reports
Training Metrics Reports Training

  • Metrics reporting is resource intensive.

  • Special performance / metrics reports had to be developed.

    • .25 - .5 FTE for EHS Training reporting

Automated training reports
Automated Training Reports Training

  • Investments in custom automated reports :

    • BrioQuery Training Dashboard

    • Monthly Training Metrics Report

    • PI Assessment Report

  • Just in time Training management reports for trend analysis and continuous improvement.

Tech support lessons learned
Tech Support Lessons Learned Training

  • In tech support, no question or issue is too trivial.

    • It may be an indicator of a larger problem.

  • Browsers are the Achilles Heel of training delivery.

  • Users prefer a phone call .

  • Same day response is expected.

  • Automated, web-based training reports have a big impact in the local labs.

The benefits outweigh the costs
The Benefits Outweigh the Costs Training

  • MIT’s EHS-MS training automation is powerful and effective

  • Rewards and resources are in balance

  • 2 - 3 FTEs per 7,800 EHS-MS training users is a sound investment.

Future training focus areas
Future Training Focus Areas Training

  • Drop/Add/Refine EHS activities

  • Better integration of Training Needs Assessment data with EHS Office Programs

  • Training efficiency

  • Continue to clarify roles and responsibilities

  • Training effectiveness- User Centered Learning
