2022 Safety Training

During 2022, we will offer 4 webinars (April, May, June, July) for member employees with safety responsibility, featuring Thomas Boardley, one of WCI's safety consultants.

Effective Safety Leadership is our May online seminar.
This one hour webinar will look at the manager's role in developing and maintaining an effective safety program. A safety culture is the result of leadership from the top. Thomas Boardley will discuss what an organization should know and what best practices should be implemented to manage workplace risks and the costs associated with those risks. All registrants will receive a Zoom meeting link a couple days before the seminar.

Developing Safety Awareness is our June online seminar.
Once the organization's leadership has established a culture of safety for lowering risks, it is essential to carry the program through every level of the workplace. In this one-hour webinar, Thomas Boardley will discuss some best practices of workplace safety programs to involve all employees in identifying and addressing risk in their respective work areas.
All registrants will receive a Zoom meeting link a day or two before the seminar.
