SafeTrack implementations are usually conducted by our consultants as facilitators—although a 3-Day Trainer Certification option is available for in-house facilitators. We require that all SafeTrack facilitators be certified at a public or in-house session. See our public workshop schedule for upcoming dates/locations.
There are four primary components to a SafeTrack implementation; training observers, sometimes training in-house facilitators, conducting employee overview sessions, and setting up internal processes and a steering committee to record, track and analyze your observations.
SafeTrack Observer Training [Agenda]
There are four classroom sessions each taking three hours, delivered in four half-day sessions or in two straight days. Each session consists of video exercises, group discussion and self-study workbook activities. The facilitator then takes the observer “on-the-job” to conduct real observations followed by an assessment, in one-on-one hands on training sessions.
The observers trained in SafeTrack are usually a 50/50 mix of supervisors and permanent hourly employees. Normally 20% of the workforce is trained in the first year, with an additional 10% trained each subsequent year.

SafeTrack Employee Overview Session [Agenda]
One of the most effective ways to initiate the SafeTrack observation and feedback process is to have a Certified SafeTrack Consultant conduct Employee Overview sessions for all employees. These sessions will significantly aid your initial group of observers by informing the employees of the reasons why you’re doing it, the benefits, and the optional, positive and co-operative nature of the observations.
