These are all citations that can be reduced or prevented with the proper controls in place.

 APEI offers a variety of tools to help identify and eliminate these violations. We offer monthly webinars regarding safety issues and can even do "onsite" inspections of your buildings. Our members also have access to free online training provided by SafeSchools and TargetSolutions who offer over 900 courses including safety topics. You can also consult your Loss Control Manual for instructions on how to maintain a safe workplace.
