Training Opportunities

WEC offers quality, interactive training using a participatory methodology that encourages problem-solving and critical thinking to address important health and safety issues in the workplace.

WEC invites you to participate in two programs in September.

8:30 AM – 1:00 PM  (8:00 AM Registration)

Every employer should have an overall injury and illness prevention program. Prevention programs improve health and safety conditions for both large and small employers, reduce workplace injuries and illnesses, improve compliance with laws and regulations, and reduce workers’ compensation premiums.

This interactive workshop will include:
