HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING

Health and Safety Sciences offers health and safety training courses and credentialing programs for industrial/oil & gas, government and federal safety response teams. The HSS Instructor cadre consists of current/former fire service, emergency management, law enforcement and military personnel. All of HSS’s team members have real world, high speed experience, which they bring to your organizations’ front door.

If your organization is only interested in checking the safety training block – do not call HSS. Earning a skill set from HSS’s instructor cadre is a mark of excellence and has to be earned. Students are immersed in lecture and practical exercises that stretch them to their limits. Once the student successfully completes one of HSS’s trademark courses, your organization can count on them when the chips are down.

HSS’s instructors use time proven instructional techniques to move critical skill sets from short term memory into long term memory through a process called data chunking. Mastery level learning is the goal of each of the course offerings – as it should be. By having the students hear, see and then do, HSS instructors ensure your team members can perform under pressure effectively, precisely and consistently.

The following gives a brief overview of the services offered by HSS. If you do not see a safety related service, contact HSS.
