Helping Small Business Owners Improve Workplace Health & Safety

trainingWOSHTEP conducts training sessions for small businesses that do not have the number of total employees required to attend the WOSH Specialist training sessions. These training sessions last roughly two hours and are free of charge for all participants.

Business owners, managers, and supervisors who attend the two-hour sessions frequently give positive feedback about the experience and its interactive teaching philosophy. Follow-up from external researchers also shows improved health and safety practices in the workplaces of participating businesses.
