GPS Safety Statement

Safeguarding GPS employees by sustaining a culture that promotes safety awareness.

Learn First Aid From a Professional

Barbara Greene has been a GPS team member since 2015. As our resident safety specialist, her daily mission is to safeguard GPS employees by sustaining a culture that promotes safety awareness. Not all first aid courses are the same. Many don’t offer the comprehensive training needed to meet OSHA First Aid Standard 29 CFR 1910.151. NSC training meets this standard, as well as the latest CPR and first aid guidelines, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of your industry.

First Aid

I can train up to 8 people in one class at your facility if you provide the classroom.  This class is anywhere from 6 ½ -8 hours long depending on class participation.  This training consists of videos, discussion, and hands on experience with First Aid events, CPR and AED.  There is a charge for this service based upon location, cost of materials and number of people.

Active Shooter/Active Threat/Workplace Violence Safety Meeting

  • Statistics
  • Escape routes
  • Items that can be used in self-defense at your location
  • Discuss the possible clues that a person could be contemplating a workplace violence event.
  • Who to report their suspicions to.

While GPS prays an Active Shooter/Active Threat/Workplace violence event does not occur at any location the reality of our world is that these events are on the rise.

Active Shooter Info

Active Shooter/Active Threat/Workplace violence is on the rise in our nation.  OSHA is taking notice.  OSHA is utilizing the General Duty Clause “ which states  “each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to its employees’ to site employers when a workplace violence event occurs and the employer has not provided appropriate training.
