WorkSafe 101 prepares business owners as they grow their businesses and hire new workers.  

By attending this one-hour class, you will be able to:

  • Learn how to hire workers who are best suited for your company and the role they will be performing
  • Understand the importance of new hire orientation programs
  • Protect your business with a comprehensive safety program that teaches new workers the basics before they step foot on the jobsite
  • Train your workers to recognize & avoid jobsite hazard and protect others from harm
  • Increase accountability with checklists and acknowledgement forms

Too many workers are injured in preventable accidents. To promote a culture of safety on every job-site, Builders Mutual developed WorkSafe 101, a compact but critical introduction to best practices.
