Safely Installing Safety

How many times have you had someone proudly declare, “We have a safety culture here?” You tour a plant or a facility and you see everyone wearing safety glasses, safety shoes, or gloves.

What a Long, Strange Trip It Has Been….

As you may or may not have heard, CarWash College has expanded and now hosts classes on the West Coast. We’re very happy about it and can now reach people for training that could never travel to Florida for it.
