1. EXPLAIN: Explain what the trainee is going to learn. Put them in a comfortable setting for learning. Explain the benefits of learning this information and consequences of not knowing it.

2. DEMONSTRATE: Demonstrate the task step-by-step, explaining as you go along. Always model correctly and ask for feedback from the trainee. Repeat as needed.

3. OBSERVE: Observe the trainee perform the task themselves. Allow them to perform it as many times as needed. Do NOT do the task for them! Ask them questions to gauge their understanding.

4. FEEDBACK: Let the trainee know how they did and provide corrective and positive feedback. Make sure the feedback is specific and individualized. Encourage further questions.

According to management and I quote here as these trainers are told (co-workers and sub-ordinates) "break in this trainee" or "Teach bob your job." trainees work under the supervision of the senior workers by observing and helping in their work with complete and actual equipments. Here trainees are immediately engaged in productive work. Once they are capable of working without the help of their trainers, the OJT is complete.

There are some precautionary majors taken by the trainees are proper handling of equipments, customer satisfaction, less wasted materials.There several companies who offered OJT. It is very old method of training but still applicable in many places.
