Everyone knows that keeping your mind on task and eyes on task is important – whether you are operating a crane or kicking a ball or driving a car. So why would you need to train employees how to do it?
To drive your organisation’s rate of personal injury and error down, you must first understand the root causes behind mistakes and errors. Telling employees to "be careful" or "pay more attention" is not enough. Employees need tools which will teach them how to keep safety in mind – even when they are pressured by production quotas.
Workplace Safety AwarenesSafeStart® consists of five modules. Each takes approximately 90 minutes. Ideally, the modules are conducted one week or two weeks apart. Each consists of a video segment, a question and answer workbook, another video segment and a table group discussion.

- Unit #2 - Eyes on Task, Mind on Task
- Unit #3 - Line-of-Fire, Balance/Traction/Grip
- Unit #4 - Rushing, Frustration, Fatigue & Complacency
