Safety One-on-One

“It starts with one conversation, with one person, about one thing.”

We believe that Safety excellence is just good business. We have helped many of our clients manage this often overlooked area of their organization and recapture some serious dollars. If you’re like them, you have struggled with your safety program and despite your best efforts, continue to experience claims. The literature tells us that 96% of all injuries are caused by unsafe behaviors. This important fact led us to build our program, Safety One-on-One.

Safety One-on-One is a systematic approach to safety in the workplace that utilizes cutting edge adult learning and cognitive behavioral principles focused on driving safe behaviors through simple one on one interactions between managers and employees, and eventually owners and managers.
