Free webinar: How to prevent life-threatening workplace injuries
Mike Molino RV Learning Center
Most fatalities and life-altering events that happen in the workplace aren’t the result of unknown or unpredictable circumstances or weird occurrences. The vast majority are caused by run-of-the-mill incidents such as distracted driving, falls, and accidental contact with objects and equipment. Most of these accidents are preventable, and that’s where an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (I2P2) comes into play. Find out how an I2P2 can make your dealership safer during a free RV Learning Center webinar tomorrow, June 11, at noon ET. This webinar is provided by RVDA strategic partner KPA.
