you have in at-risk situations. Our expert panel will discuss topics that promote awareness and

Grennell’s On the road, On the job International Safety Workshop is within its 10 yrs. of delivering
success to its participants across industries within Jamaica.
I have been involved since its inception, from being a participant, a moderator, a facilitator and
a presenter. Grennell’s International Safety workshops have increased workplace knowledge in
many areas of safety and among topical issues that are always discussed at the interactive panel
discussions. In most cases, these sessions have improved the participants' personal life and career
path in a positive way. They are always ready to employ the skills and tips, learned, with great
results almost immediately on the job, on the roads and for those who operate their own businesses.
The experience is always a fulfilling one.
Interestingly, Grennell’s always uses an inclusive approach, people centered, getting feedback and
asking for ideas to meet the participants' needs as well as the employers' to tailor their training for all.
The international safety workshop is very informative, with eye-opening sessions which provide the
opportunity to discuss issues openly and honestly without prejudice regarding workplace happenings
and to drive a safety culture in a generative way.
I have personally benefited, and it has helped me to be a rounded individual when it comes to safety in a big way executing self awareness and total observation on the job and on the roads. The workshops are a fundamental part of career building for all levels of workers, including management. The workshop is geared to promote a safe and healthy working environment, to reduce occupational health and safety risks, prevent work-related incidents and to improve compliance to policies, procedures and legislative/regulatory authorities.
I recommend Grennell’s International Safety Workshop anytime. It’s like a “ONE STOP SHOP” for learning.
