STS Highlights: September 2023
Repeated Warning: If you are outside in hot and/or humid weather, stay hydrated, take breaks, and allow yourself time and opportunity to cool off. Heat related illnesses are very dangerous. Warning aside, I truly hope you are getting some sort of break from the recent, lasting hot weather. September is typically our marker for autumn and cooler weather, and cooler temperatures cannot get here soon enough.
Schools are back in session. A lot of our customers are training new employees and finishing up annual training requirements for their returning workers. I’ve included a rich variety of resources this month, including information about Bullying Prevention, Pre-Trip Inspections, Cleaning and Disinfecting, and more.
I’m also personally excited to attend and to see everyone at this year’s NAPT Conference!
The goal with these monthly resources is always to help elevate your career, department, or organization. As always, we take pride in helping you meet your training requirements and goals.
Thank you for your time,
