Occupational Health and Safety Training

Providing health and safety training to your employees is time and money well spent. Effective training leads to reduced injuries, reduction in days away from work, and prevents lost production time. This leads to better morale, lower insurance premiums, and many other advantages that can help protect your bottom line.

Beacon Safety Consulting and Training provides employee training at our client’s facility eliminating the need for employees to travel to far away locations. This is a very cost effective way of handling employee training. After training, our client’s health and safety manuals will be reviewed and updated as necessary.

“Under the expert guidance of Beacon Safety, the health and safety of our employees is constantly being reviewed and updated. We have put our trust in Beacon for over 5 years. From safety training meetings, to hands on training sessions, to excellent customer services, Beacon has served our company exceptionally well.”
