    Safety Certification: Why Does it Matter to Me?

    Safety certification has clear benefits for employers, including reduced costs, but what does it mean for workers? In this presentation, you’ll learn how you can reap the benefits of certification as an employee. A safety certified workplace has lower injury rates, meaning you are less likely to get hurt on the job. Certified employers also receive help ensuring that legislative requirements regarding safety are met, which makes for a more safe and healthy workplace for you. In addition, certified workplaces lend themselves to greater engagement between employees and managers.

    If your employer doesn’t have safety certification, this presentation will help you learn how to get a conversation on certification started in your workplace.
