Many small businesses don’t have the resources available for safety training. This fact increases the likelihood that workers will suffer injuries and illnesses on the job.

In an effort to support business in the Capital Region, the Northeastern New York Safety & Health Council, Inc. is excited to offer this three (3) day FREE training program funded by the New York State Hazard Abatement Board.

The courses are geared toward new supervisors and managers and designed to help these businesses reduce injuries and costs, now and into the future.

The three (3) courses will be offered on separate days, during a one week period and while meant to build upon one other, can be taken individually.

Please consider when registering that enrollment will be limited to 20 students per class. This will allow for a highly interactive learning environment.
