Safety Training Institute

"The SafetyWorks! Safety Training Institute is the first of its kind in the nation. We believe it will be a very effective training tool and hope that the model can be replicated elsewhere."

- Marthe Kent

"The forklift training was phenomenal. I learned a lot, including what not to do and I have been able to train others in our company. I use what I learned all the time."

Peggy Smith, Manset Yacht
