During this full-day course, trainers will learn about new studies and effective tools for addressing emerging issues in the workplace including whistle blower protection, safety culture, and bullying among workers. They will participate in interactive, small-group workshops focusing on training tools and methods to improve the trainer’s health and safety knowledge. This course also will help health and safety trainers meet goals of reducing injuries and illnesses at work. View pdf
