For those of you who haven't subscribed to Training Trends yet, here is a snippet from June's edition - Effective Training Solutions for National Safety Month.

The 5 keys to improving safety in your office

More than 4 million workplace injuries and illnesses were reported in 2006, and nearly a third of them involved days away from work. Not only is this a drain on employee morale and productivity, but it also hits your company’s pocketbook through increased workers’ comp claims and insurance rates.
