    Be the Vehicle for a Culture of Safety: Upcoming Safety Workshops

    Register Now

    Montana State Fund’s Safety Services Specialist Kirk Smith is back on the road this September with his free half-day safety workshop, Be the Vehicle for a Culture of Safety.  (A virtual training will be presented at the end of the month).

    Topics include:
    Identify On-the Job Hazards
    : Identifying hazards in your workplace is one of the first steps to build a strong safety culture. But before you begin, you need to ask yourself the who, what and how of identifying and reducing hazards at your business.  In this section, we’ll answer the who, what and how, explore hazard identification best practices, and explain how a good hazard reporting program enhances this process.

    Vehicle Safety Programs:  You might not have a designated “fleet” of vehicles for your employees to drive, but if they use their own vehicles for business purposes, it can create a risk for your organization. This type of vehicle use is referred to as a “hidden fleet.”  In this session, we will address the best safety practices for “hidden fleets” and traditional fleet vehicle programs.
