Quality Management Certificate Program
Quality is a never ending quest and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) is a never ending effort to discover and eliminate the main causes of problems. It accomplishes this by using small-steps improvements, rather than implementing one huge improvement. When we engage in process improvement, we seek to learn what causes things to happen and then use this knowledge to reduce variation, remove activities that have no value to the organization and improve customer satisfaction.

Successful Safety Committee Certificate
The intention of a safety committee is to identify and remediate organizational safety concerns while promoting and implementing best safety practices. The challenge for any organization is to stay on task while maintaining positive safety focused attitudes. Demonstrating commitment from all involved can only be achieved through activity that engages and informs all employees within the workplace. It is this engagement that fosters the desired safety culture within the organization. To learn more about this certificate, please download this printer-friendly PDF version.
The Economics of Safety Certificate
The motivation to implement required safety and health practices sometimes diminishes within the context of production schedules. When production is viewed as the priority above safety standards, the illusion of cost savings can quickly be replaced by the sobering realities associated with a workplace incident that causes a death or severe injury. The impact to the bottom line can be devastating. Information and awareness is a proactive way to avoid workplace tragedies while protecting the profitability of the organization.
