SafeStart in the Education Sector

SafeStart is designed to help people efficiently and effectively minimize the mistakes or errors that can get them hurt. It has proven itself in industrial settings for over 15 years, and more recently in the education system, from high schools to post-secondary institutions  where it is desperately needed to keep students safe from injuries and adequately prepare them for the hazards they’ll face in life—at work, at home, in sports, in the community and on the road.

Benefits of implementing SafeStart at schools include:

  • Drastic reduction in student and staff injuries
  • Less class-time missed
  • More attentive students
  • Fewer administrative headaches
  • Reduced workers’ compensation premiums
  • A stronger safety culture
  • Develop more safety-ready candidates for employers


The SafeStart Process changed the way the students and staff saw their responsibilities, and our school culture was changed for the better.

SafeStart Turns Students Into Workers

SafeStart provides safety lessons that last—so students can walk into their first job safer and more capable.

One post-secondary technical institute surveyed employers who’d hired SafeStart-trained students and found that 100% of them observed increased awareness and consciousness towards safety in their new hires.

Major employers like Alliant Energy, Nestle Purina and Honda Aircraft include SafeStart in their job postings. Being able to put SafeStart on a resume allows students to communicate that they have well-developed safety skills and bring demonstrable value to the workplace. Give your students the essential skills they need to get the job and the training that employers are looking for in potential employees.

SafeStart can be implemented in a variety of classroom and group settings. Every implementation includes:

  • In-person teacher and student training by an experienced safety consultant
  • An appealing learning format
  • Proven results
  • Hands-on support
  • Program that accommodates different learning abilities
  • Flexible delivery times
  • Affordable pricing model for educators
