Stuff Happens is geared toward those who work in any environment, whether an office or an industrial setting. This program addresses preventing problems and dealing with them after they arise. “Stuff” can broadly range from knocking over a cup of coffee on your desk or a bad weather event, to being engaged in an active shooter situation. The presentation helps you prepare for safety in any work environment through prevention and response.
Patrick Jolly has been with Geauga County Public Library for more than 26 years and has been involved with staff safety training for more than 20 years. He recently presented his program on how to build a workplace safety program for non-industrial business at the 2018 Ohio Safety Congress in Columbus.
