This five-days course is certified by the National Safety Council (NSC) and includes 16 instructional modules. Each module focuses on critical requirements for safety improvement in the workplace and includes discussion of management approaches and regulatory issues that apply. SSDP addresses leadership and management philosophies, empowered employees and self-directed teams, and hazard control and risk reduction, as well as other current ideas in effective practices that help improve and sustain safety performance. A key feature of the program requires participants to demonstrate they have acquired the knowledge and skills from training and are prepared to implement them in the workplace. Participants can gauge their understanding by answering self-check questions at the end of each module. Facilitators can evaluate learning and retention using each module’s participant exam and a cumulative course exam.
