METALFOCUS® Safety Program Seeks to Reduce Risk and Improve Your Company

March 31, 2021 at 6:00 p.m.


New 10-course metal safety program goes the extra mile beyond OSHA-10 safety training to help your metal business thrive.

Safety is a priority across the industry but is especially important when it comes to working with metal. Nothing sends the message to your employees, customers and insurance company that you care about avoiding accidents and improving your business more than a safety program. Designed to help your metal business thrive, METALCON has partnered with Safety Works, Inc. to create the METALFOCUS® Safety Program, a series of 10 one-hour virtual courses that cover metal safety rules, tools, trends and techniques as well as unique jobsite situations.

Mix and match sessions to suit your schedule and fulfill your personal metal safety training needs. Earn 10 AIA HSW LU credits by registering for the full course. Whether you attend this program yourself or delegate to a team member, your company will gain invaluable insight and advice with the potential to reduce risk of lost-time accidents and damage to equipment which can lead to lower insurance premiums, lower the risk of regulatory fines and improve your company culture and employee morale.

Each course will be conducted live with real-time Q&A. If you are unable to attend a live session, it will be available on-demand. Training materials to compliment the presented material will be provided.
