Building Inclusive Teams: A ‘How-To’ Leaders Guide
In the past ten years, the workforce has changed dramatically and leaders must understand how to manage teams. More than ever, a workplace is a collection of individuals proud of whom they are: their gender, their sexual orientation, their religion, their ethnic background, and even skill sets that make an individual unique.  In order for a business to succeed, employees must be able to appreciate and celebrate those differences — and, most important, work together.  Join us for this practical and interactive workshop to learn how to effectively build a team that succeeds together.

OSHA 10-Hour Voluntary Compliance for General Industry
This 10-hour OSHA Certification seminar is designed for managers or other personnel responsible for on-the-job safety and implementing work place practices that comply with OSHA standards. Learn what safety training is required, who needs it, and how often it must be done. This course will provide an introduction to the OSHA Act and will cover such topics as walking and working surfaces, exit routes, emergency action plans, fire prevention/protection, electrical safety, PPE, and hazard communications. Other topics will be discussed based on class need. Participants will receive an OSHA 10-hour card. Join us for this informative workshop.
