2012 National Trainers’ Exchange for Department of Energy Safety and Health Trainers

Workshop Dates: May 7–8, 2012

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Worker Education and Training Program (NIEHS WETP) hosted the first National Trainers' Exchange for Department of Energy (DOE) safety and health trainers on May 7-8, 2012 in Knoxville, TN. Over 100 participants attended the Trainers' Exchange to share and exchange best practices and techniques on how to create more effective and empowering training. The Conference was funded under its DOE Nuclear Worker Training Program.

A trainers' exchange is designed for trainers to share best practices and new techniques through a series of workshops conducted by the trainers themselves. The goals are to meet and share ideas about how to create more effective and empowering training, improve training skills, and exchange best practices and techniques. The NIEHS WETP has conducted a series of similar exchanges with documented success in achieving these goals.
