“The program was a great experience for my employees. I learned from them regarding the safety measures they felt was necessary for the restaurant. It worked out! I took their suggestion and implemented the changes. This seminar empowered the employees so much that they choose a team leader within themselves to conduct monthly Safety meetings. This seminar was certainly a morale booster!”

–Tony Hernandez, Guadalajara Grill

“This was the first time we ever had a safety meeting. I learned about things from my co workers I hadn’t thought about, like to shout out when I am taking something from the oven, or where to store my knives so no one accidentally gets cut.”

–Cook, full service restaurant
