About the Course
The course develops one or more employees into trainers so they can do the training for your company. The benefits include the ease and cost savings for OSHA mandated 3-year refresher/ remedial training after a near miss, accident, or unsafe operation has been observed. Of course, the most obvious benefit to you is having your own trainers means they can train any future new hires. This is a very important consideration if your company experiences a high turnover rate.
