Workshops

Training on the safety essentials every business needs

At offices and construction sites alike, employees who engage in unsafe behaviors put themselves and others at risk for accidents and injuries. You can’t bubble-wrap the staff, but these live, interactive workshops can raise awareness and help eliminate risky conduct. They’re held in full observance of the COVID-19 rules in effect at the time they’re held. Plus, they’re free of charge for our policyholders’ workers and managers.

Browse, choose and register here for just what you need.

Our complete catalog of safety workshops for the calendar year appears below. Just click the workshop you want to pull up a detailed description of the topics we cover. Since some of the sessions fill quickly, we recommend signing up early to reserve the spots you need. Each event takes place at our corporate offices in Albuquerque.

The workshops cover a wide range of safety topics, from workplace hazards to defensive driving and drug and alcohol awareness training. Each is taught by a safety expert whose engaging style brings the subject matter to life for participants. The OSHA-10 workshops can be costly if purchased elsewhere—but like our other offerings, they’re free for the employees of our policyholders.

As an employer, does medical marijuana cause you concern? What about prescription drug abuse? And then there is alcohol misuse and motor vehicle crashes. Are your substance abuse policies current? Drug and alcohol issues have a huge impact on safety, workplace productivity and employee turnover. Having a policy that addresses current substance abuse becomes more challenging, ignoring it can create many issues affecting your bottom line, increasing your liability and workers’ compensation rates. The businesses most often affected are small to mid-sized companies, according to the Department of Labor. This workshop is specifically designed to guide supervisory personnel and provide training on the following:

  • Substance abuse policies, addressing medical marijuana and prescription abuse
  • OSHA rule (Anti-Retaliatory) on post-accident testing
  • The most current information on medical marijuana in the workplace
  • The signs and symptoms of probable drug use and/or alcohol misuse
  • How to approach an employee you suspect of being impaired
  • When to test and when NOT to test, and how to conduct testing
  • How company wellness programs can help curb substance abuse issues
