Aziz Gürpınar: “For a qualified education, trainers need to improve their competencies continuously…”
Stating that they have recently started to provide occupational health and safety training, Aziz Gürpınar said that trainers should constantly improve their competencies for quality education. Gürpınar stated that training of trainers helps trainers gain the skills they need to provide an effective training; “It is important that occupational health and safety trainers, who play an important role in creating a valuable culture on occupational health and safety in the workplace, must be able to carry out all training processes by using their trainer skills effectively. Conscious and well-equipped trainers are individuals who contribute to the effective maintenance of Occupational Health and Safety processes in institutions. In this sense, I believe that all OHS experts, who will receive training and then train and provide Occupational Health and Safety training to employees in their workplaces, will increase their skills with this training”.
