Following your implementation of the core SafeStart units, SafeTrack and the SafeStart Extended Application Units (EAUs) are your two most significant opportunities for solidifying your long-term success with the SafeStart process.
The EAUs will not only help you fully realize the potential of injury reductions within specific applications (like sprains and strains), they will also sustain your core injury prevention results by maintaining enthusiasm, continuing the learning process and practicing the critical error reduction techniques to form positive safety habits.
While the EAUs reinforce the original SafeStart training, they teach much more advanced concepts and techniques to further develop employee safety skills.
Designed as an annual or semi-annual follow-up to SafeStart, these units provide up to 5 years of SafeStart sustainability depending on your training schedule. Each of these enhancement units take about 90–120 minutes.
The new Third Edition EAUs follow the same delivery format as the core units with the addition of interactive, reality-based video segments, advanced story-telling techniques and instructor-led presentations and group exercises.
In-house trainers certified to deliver the core program can deliver the EAUs without further training or certification because of the similar delivery format. However, because of the more complex concepts covered in these units, it is recommended that they use the services of our consultants to ensure these sessions are delivered effectively.
