What works best for your organization?

  • 3-hour format, or

The first thing Carl does is visit your workplace to learn more about your hazards.  He spends time observing and taking pictures that will be used in your customized hazard recognition workshop.  Carl will also advise on any issues he might find during the walk-through.

During the walk-through if Carl finds a condition that could lead to a fine from OSHA or be immediately threatening to life, he will inform you and advise you in mitigating the risk.  Many clients have found this to be worth scheduling the first workshop.

His style is to challenge the participants and engage them in discussions that will lead them to go out and find hazards to mitigate.  This creates a workplace where it is difficult to get hurt.

Why Should You Schedule This Workshop?

This is the best safety training you can give your employees.  Hazard recognition is the cornerstone of any successful safety process.  In all industries where people and equipment are involved, the workplaces become dangerous primarily when employees do not practice hazard recognition.  In more than 35 years of industry experience Carl Potter found that employees are trained to control hazards, yet aren’t trained hazard recognition.  In an attempt to help you avoid all injuries and damage to vehicles, equipment and property, Carl designed a solution: Hazard Recognition Workshop.

There is a reason that OSHA’s General Duty Clause states that employers will provide a workplace free of known hazards.  All osha training promotes hazard recognition.  Hazards cause injury and damage to equipment and property. Injuries from hazards impact families every year and damage to equipment cost organizations thousands of dollars every year.  When would you like to get control of the hazards causing injury in your workplace?

Imagine a worksite where everyone takes responsibility for hazard recognition and control.
