Corporate Profiles: SafeStart

SafeStart provides practical training to help workers avoid injuries caused by human factors that are involved in the majority of incidents and injuries. Even with a traditional safety program in place (controls, procedures, personal protective eqipment), you still need to address human factor incidents like PPE noncompliance and injuries from slips, trips and falls – and that can be a real challenge. Companies have used SafeStart to reduce injuries by 50 percent on average in the first year of training. And many clients take it even further; Scot Forge reduced injuries by 73 percent and won the America’s Safest Companies Award four years after implementing SafeStart. States like rushing, frustration, fatigue and complacency lead to unintentional, risk-increasing errors like workers getting distracted and then slipping or tripping as a result. SafeStart addresses these common causes of injuries in a format that’s been applied in every major industry over the past 15 years. The SafeStart instructor-led course provides specific critical error reduction techniques and decision improvement strategies that participants can use to reduce their risk of injury in any situation – at work, at home or on the road. We help clients achieve world-class safety performance by addressing the human factors within their overall safety system – and improving their production and quality as a result of reducing errors. SafeStart is significant to your bottom line, and it’s also important to thousands of workers going home safely every day. What we do is too important to ever stop growing or improving, and we’re honored to share our passion and motivation with the safety professionals we serve.
