About us

SafeStart

SafeStart makes safety training more personable, more engaging and more useful.

We’ve educated thousands of companies to support personal safety. We’ve trained millions of employees to be mindful of human error. On every continent, we’ve guided people to take practical safety skills from the workplace into their homes and communities.

For over 20 years, SafeStart warehouses have shipped safety workbooks around the world. SafeStart trainers have arrived on-site at the crack of dawn to set up classrooms. SafeStart account managers have called clients to make sure training has gone smoothly. The SafeStart research department has developed guides on how human error prevention training can transform business culture, performance and—yes—safety.

We are a training company that cares about organizational excellence. We are a learning company that cares about 24/7 performance. In 32 languages, we help people understand that personal awareness is the key to workplace safety.

We are the next generation of safety training.
