What Others Have to Say:
"I recently completed the Advanced Safety Certificate for the second time in my safety career. Not just that, but many of the other courses at the Utah Safety Council. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is responsible for safety in any organization to attend all the classes they can. It will help to establish a solid base to work on and provide the employer knowledge that is needed to start or sustain a successful program. With the change that is continually upon our organizations it is vital to stay on top of the knowledge which is available. Safety training is an investment not a lost cost. The network of safety professionals I have made is invaluable with helping to improve my own safety programs."

"The Advanced Safety Certificate is great to have, but the classes that we had taken have really educated me on safety as a whole. I took the four day classes and each one has taught me what it really means to be a safety professional. Each course had given us goals to take back to our companies and work on with what we had learned in each class. By working on one of these particular goals, we here at Major Drilling had identified a great risk to our crews that had never been identified before and that made everything worth it right there. Having a Safety Management System class made us look at our current system and really improve on an already great system. Having instruction from an Industrial Hygienist at one of the classes taught me things that I thought I knew and didn’t. This class was a great boost of knowledge of requirements, how to safely comply using the right equipment and how to use the right equipment. Major Drilling is currently working on a program to send all our Safety Department personnel to earn their ASC and we have two of five that have completed it including myself. We here at Major Drilling America highly recommend any one in the Safety Industry to get the Safety Councils Advanced Safety Certificate, not only for the Certificate but the knowledge gained from the courses. The benefits of the courses are worth more than the cost of the program, hands down!"

"The benefit for the individual and the company is being able to implement the information in the program. I believe this program has the standards to run an effective safety program. I was extremely pleased because my safety management understanding was increased but I could also go back and compare each element (module) with what my company is doing. The training and information in this program provides practical tools as well as a blueprint to develop and execute a top notch safety program. Safety always impacts the bottom line."

"I have found the training and education from the Utah Safety Council to be "top notch" and very worth the cost and time especially the classes included in the "Advance Safety Certificate". This program helped Harmons take a good Safety Program and make it even better. With training and support from the Utah Safety Council Harmons has been able to reduce it's MOD Rating from 1.35 to .95 over the last three years and are looking forward to driving this number even lower. With the lower MOD Rating Harmons has been able to save thousands on its Worker's Compensation Premium."
