No-Cost Safety Lunch and Learn

This spring, the Small Business Safety and Health Center at the Gulf Coast Safety Institute is expanding its course offerings for small businesses. Beginning in February, the Center will offer monthly “lunch and learn” or “dinner and learn” opportunities. The first “lunch and learn” will be offered on Feb. 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Gulf Coast Safety Institute. The topic will be “Safety Training on a Budget.”

A worthwhile investment for any business, safety training can help reduce the risk of accidents and injuries while at work. Trying to fit safety training in a tight budget may seem daunting but there are plenty of ways to train employees and ensure that they get the skills and knowledge they need to perform effectively on the job without breaking the bank.

For more information or to participate, please contact Guinn Sharp, Program Coordinator for the Small Business Safety and Health Center at the Gulf Coast Safety Institute by phone at 409-933-8338 or by email at smallbusiness_safety@com.edu.
