A Health and Safety Training matrix is a very effective planning and communication tool used by an organisation to manage and monitor their safety and other training needs. The for it takes is not important as long as it clearly shows what types of training are required for various job roles or specific employees. A manager or supervisor can easily identify and track at a glance the required training without referring to volumes of procedures, legislation or company policies. It can also be used for quickly determining who has been trained, when they were trained, what gaps there are in their training, scheduling training and allocating resources. A safety training matrix can also be used for employee development and performance evaluation. They can be kept electronically or in paper form, many will openly display them in staff areas for various good reasons.
