Kellie is an OSHA authorized instructor. She concentrates on the liabilities that face the marine industry.  She strives to get facilities to lower their liabilities, their exposures to fines, fires, lawsuits, bad press, astronomical workers compensation rates and employee complaints.  She believes that employee education and management “buy in and actions” are essential to having a successful Environmental, Health & Safety Program.  She has seen the results of great programs and the disasters that substandard one’s cause.

A combination of training, written programs and recordkeeping are good building blocks.   By following the guidelines you should have environmentally friendly facilities, healthier workplaces and employees that are not getting hurt…..oh…and a good nights sleep.
