More Training Programs

Training is a fundamental component in any workplace injury prevention and management program. You can’t hold your employees, supervisors and managers accountable if you don’t train them in safe work practices and their expected performance. Safety doesn’t need to happen by accident; offering training in office ergonomics, lab ergonomics, back safety and other areas gives employees an opportunity to self-correct their behavior when possible. Training and education provides the foundation for safe work practices and discussion to drive change in the organization.
