Event Name:Health & Safety Practices for Water Treatment Systems
Event Type(s):Training/Seminars
Description:Health & Safety Practices for Water Treatment Systems: Staying safe and healthy while on the job is not common sense for all. Creating and maintaining a culture of ‘safety first’ takes a great deal of training, emphasis and reinforcement. This class can be an important part of such a program. ‘Safety first’ must be more than just a trite sign on the walls of your plant. Each individual (with your help) has the obligation to return home each day in the same condition (or better) in which they left. Staff must be trained to understand basic safety practices and then to make the consistent choice to follow those practices. Sending your personnel to this course sends the message of how critical the practice of safety is in your plant.
