IT'S AMAZING HOW A GAME OF JENGA CAN ENCOURAGE SAFE BEHAVIOR.
O.K., the “Live It. Lead It.” safety training for employees at Cummins involves a lot more than stacking blocks. But many participating employees say the class is doing more to promote safety than any training they’ve ever taken.
“The experience I had in the classroom was different than any training I’ve ever had,” said Debbie Liming, a Manufacturing Support Technician at the company’s Columbus Engine Plant (CEP) in Columbus, Indiana. “The leaders were open. They talked about situations they’d had here at work and also at home – which you never hear that at all.”
Stacy Workman-Wyatt, the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Leader at CEP, says the training makes safety personal while involving an element of team building and fun.
“Live It. Lead It. is really a way of life,” said Workman-Wyatt, who was part of the team that put the employee training together.
