The Safety Training Program

Corpuz Refrigeration Company builds refrigerators for other large refrigerator companies such
as GE. It employs about 300 people, mostly assembly line workers and is located at Manggahan,
Dasmarinas Cavite.
During the summer months, volume at the factory increases significantly and the company
needs to hire about 40 new employees to handle the heavy workload. Most of these new employees
are college and high school students who are on summer vacation.
When a new employee is hired, the company asks him or her to complete an application blank
and then to show up at the plant gate ready for work. Employees receive no orientation. The worker is
shown to the work station and after a minimum amount of on the job training, the new employee is
expected to start performing a job. Most of the jobs are quite simple and hence, training is completed
within 5-10 minutes.
The company has had excellent experience with the students over the years. Much of the
success can be attributed to the older workers coming to the aid of the new employees when trouble
or difficulties arise.
One summer, the company experienced a rash of injuries to its employees. Although most of
the injuries were minor, the company felt it imperative to conduct a series of short training programs
on safe material-handling techniques. The company was at a loss to who should conduct the training.
Out of desperation, the president asked Jonathan Andres, the first-line supervisor of the ‘lid line’ to
conduct the training. Jonathan had recently attended a training program on safety and was active in
the Red Cross. Jonathan reluctantly agreed to conduct the training.
At the first of these training sessions, Jonathan nervously stood up in front of 14 employees,
many of whom were college students and read his presentation in a monotone voice. His entire
speech lasted about 7 minutes.
After Jonathan’s speech ended, the employees immediately returned to work. By the end of
the day, however, everyone in the plant had heard about the training fiasco and all, except the
president were laughing about it.
