Safety Basics for the Non Safety Professional [Live Session]COURSE DESCRIPTION

Safety is essential to the long-term profitability and well-being of any organization, but many companies don't have the staff or funds to dedicate a full-time resource to it. Safety training and compliance often falls on the shoulders of HR managers or support staff who wear many other hats in their companies already.

If “safety professional” is not your primary role and you're involved with planning or communicating safety messages, this course was for you. If safety IS your primary role, this may have been a good refresher course or a good resource to share with your front-line managers involved in safety efforts!

At this live event, we went through the ways you can work to improve safety and compliance at your organization. We discussed key elements of every safety program and how they can be implemented in your workplace. We also went over tips for changing unsafe employee behaviors and supplied attendees with resources to keep their companies up-to-date and compliant.


  • How safety impacts the success of every company
  • Things every safety program should include
  • Documentation requirements related to safety and compliance
