The webinars will discuss the Plan-Do-Check-Act Concept, how to implement a Safety Management System and the steps in the process.
This series is intended to bring your Safety and Risk Management Program to the next level. Information gained from these webinars will allow you to begin the process of implementing a Safety Management System at your organization. These webinars will also feature tools to assist you with the process. We encourage participants to attend all three parts of the webinar series to obtain the necessary knowledge to implement an effective program.
