Assessment of Employee Competence as a Way to Measure Training Effectiveness. Organizations invest substantial resources into workplace safety training to ensure employee compliance with safety standards. One way to determine if employees mastered the required knowledge and skills is to assess their competence through an objective examination. Yardstick will discuss the process and benefits of developing an examination that is tied to a defensible job competency profile. This examination could be offered to employees upon completion of their safety training to promote workplace safety and save lives. A case study on the development of a certification exam for electrical engineering technologists will be presented as a possible model.
