Safety training has been identified as one of the most important safety management practices. Previous research has suggested several models for evaluating the effectiveness of safety training. Evaluation is crucial to implement evidence-based training interventions. However, the outcomes of safety training are difficult to demonstrate. Studies better specifying and measuring the outcomes of training are needed. The aim of this study was to design and test a model for evaluating the outcomes of safety training. The model addressed 1) safety knowledge, 2) safety attitudes, beliefs and motivation, 3) safety behavior and 4) safety performance. A survey (n = 25) was used to measure the employees’ perceptions after the safety training. Based on the results, some improvements in safety knowledge, attitudes, behavior and safety performance can be found. The model was found as suitable for its purpose. The results can be utilized in identifying factors related to the effectiveness of safety training.
