Lawrence County Economic Growth Council Director of Career Development Joe Timbrook says, “Each participant will leave the training with a clear understanding of worker’s rights and employer responsibilities, fire prevention and emergency response; electrical safety; fall protection; how to prevent workplace hazards, and much more.” “Employers today understand that training and development directly link to employee motivation and retention as training can critically impact both individual satisfaction and business performance.”
