Course Offerings

One of the most important components of workplace safety is adequately preparing your employees to handle emergency situations.

TSS, Inc. relies on a curriculum designed and maintained by the American Health and Safety Institute — a world leader in emergency response, care, and safety training. Each hands-on training course is developed with attention to detail and the mission to involve and engage every trainee in the process as we know that participants learn much more effectively when they are actively involved in the learning process. Videos help round out the overall theory or concepts.
