Trends in learning and development in the field of healthy and safe working

The future of healthy and safe working is uncertain, complex and dynamic, as we read in the horizon scan of the RIVM and TNO. Outlining the future situation of healthy and safe working does not immediately provide tools for concrete action when it comes to learning and development. However, there are a number of concrete trends that we can take into account.

Globalization, migration and standardization

More and more instructions and e-learning courses will become available that can be used generically. In the field of safety, food safety or data security, for example. Based on legislation, guidelines and/or instructions determined by international standards or industry agreements. In larger organizations you see that quality or safety policy is increasingly determined at corporate level. House and safety rules can thus be developed once and (re)used at all locations. Supplemented with short company or location specific modules so that all relevant instructions or risks can be covered.

Today's generation processes information much more effectively with multimedia content instead of written instructions or teaching material. Visual instructions that are easier to use worldwide and more effective without spoken text or text lines. For example, we see more and more companies using this methodology to instruct international drivers about location-specific house rules and loading and unloading procedures.

Changing work tasks and flexibility

The content of the work changes. Turnover and personnel changes are increasing. As a result, a learning need arises. It is therefore wise to visually record working methods as much as possible now. So that knowledge about the product and process is recorded and can be transferred flexibly and effectively. In animation, visuals, instructional film or a combination thereof.
