Achieving  an injury-free workplace takes more than a catchy phrase or one individual championing the cause. It takes a team effort. All workers need to be engaged in the safety culture. Safety leaders understand the pivotal role that frontline supervisors play in shaping the safety mindset in the workforce, and often wish that frontline supervisors understood this as well.

SAF Frontline Safety Training is a 3-day course designed to enhance a supervisor’s understanding of the bigger picture of safety, and his or her role in creating a safer work environment.
