Fundamentals of Safety Leadership – WVU Safety and Health Extension
The Fundamentals of Safety Leadership training is based on elements of leadership training material developed by the Center for Construction Research and Training. It is a 3-hour course that uses leadership principles to identify the communication styles of workers and supervisors. Participants will have the opportunity to learn these principles and then apply the leadership skills through interactive role play and photo-based activities similar to real-life scenarios they may encounter in the workplace. The scenarios will focus on high risk tasks, such as transportation, struck-by/caught-between, confined spaces, falls and explosions. The skills and principles shared in the course will help all workers feel more confident in identifying workplace hazards and feel more comfortable stopping work when necessary to address those hazards.
Accident Investigation – Encova Insurance
The accident investigation course will identify key concepts and principles in conducting an effective investigation following any type accident or incident. The steps taken immediately following an accident are critical in controlling any future steps on the response process. Quick response in conducting the investigation and capturing information also plays a huge role in effective claims management when injuries result from the event. Claims management is key in helping control overall workers compensation costs and keeping the impact of the accident as minimal as possible. This course will help link the importance of both components.
