Safety Training for Superheroes

With the new superhero movie Avengers: Infinity War coming out soon, we thought we’d take a little break from the seriousness of our usual discussions about training, safety, manufacturing, and similar topics and put together workforce training suggestions for some of the superheroes who will appear in the upcoming Avengers movie.

This is one of a series of humor-based articles we do at Convergence Training from time to time. In addition to this one, feel free to check out some of these:

With that said, let’s take a look at our suggestions of Safety Training for Superheroes. We’ve even included the trailer for the Avengers: Infinity War movie near the bottom of this post for you!

Even Superheroes Need Safety (and other Job-Related) Training

Here’s our list of safety training suggestions for some of the superheroes in the upcoming movie. We’re going to focus just on Avengers, thinking that’s who most of you might be familiar with. No slight intended to the Guardians of the Galaxy (a noble role!).

Watch for future blog posts covering training suggestions for other superheroes as well.

And scroll down toward the bottom to see the trailer for The Avengers: Infinity War.

Safety Training for Spiderman

All that high-altitude web-slingin’ calls for a little Fall Prevention and Protection training!

And for those of you who grew up around the time I did, here’s a super-cool Spidey bonus:

Safety Training for Hulk

A no-brainer, here. Let’s get some Stress Management and Prevention training for Mr. Mean and Green.

And here’s another blast from the past from the gamma-ray generation:

Safety Training for Thor

For Goldilocks, I thought about Hand and Power Tool Safety because of his mighty hammer Mjolnir (good for smiting enemies!), but it seems like the Norse God of Thunder has to have some Electrical Safety Training, no?

And speaking of shocks, here’s an electrifying jolt from the past:

Safety Training for Captain America

Cap’s got some new team members and may even be a little disenchanted with this superhero thing, so how about a little Change Management training?


And speaking of “the times, they are a changin’,” here’s a stirring bit of patriotism from the past:

Safety Training for Iron Man

How about some Welding Safety Training for Iron Man? Hey, I could haven given his alter-ego Tony Stark some Substance Abuse Awareness or even Sexual Harassment training, right?


And here’s the man of metal, old shell-head himself, from a different era:

Safety Training for Black Widow

I could have given this safety training to Spidey, but let’s go with First Aid for Spider Bites for Ms. Natasha Romanova.

Safety Training for The Scarlet Witch

Witches are people too, right? How about a little diversity training for increased acceptance of this powerful woman? It’s the #metoo generation, right?

Safety Training for Hawkeye

Our good friend Hawk, known for his keen eye, needs some PPE training and especially eye protection to keep shootin’ straight!

Safety Training for Winter Soldier

What’s more appropriate for the Winter Soldier than some Cold Stress training? Brr!

Safety Training for Dr. Strange

Is it fair to call the good doctor “strange” simply because he wears a cape, is a self-styled “sorcerer supreme,” and is a master of the occult? Methinks some Discrimination in the Workplace training is called for.

Safety Training for Vision

Is the beam that shoots out of the Mind Stone in Vision’s forehead a laser? If not, I’d say it’s close enough! Let’s sign this android up for some laser safety training STAT!

Safety Training for Black Panther

How about some Metal on Metal Safety Training for the ruler of Wakanda, the world’s sole source of the precious metal vibranium?

Safety Training for Ant Man

We think some First Aid for Fire Ant Bites and Stings training might come in handy when this little guy and his hard-working, seemingly intelligent, yet “bitey” friends are around.

Safety Training for Loki

Not even we have proper safety training for this Norse trickster god. You’re on your own with Loki!

Safety Training for Thanos

No jokes here. Occupational fatalities are preventable. Read our review of Dr. Todd Conklin’s book on Preventing Fatalities to learn more.

But we do have a few extra goodies for you below…
