Welcome To The Blue Ridge Safety Association
The Blue Ridge Safety Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the safety and health of people in central and western Virginia, through education and training. The Blue Ridge Safety Association partners with area Safety Networks.
Training programs, seminars and on-site visits by the area Safety Networks provide a wide range of educational and training opportunities for businesses and industries. Most of these programs are offered either free or at a very low cost to cover meals and expenses. Training courses can be tailored to an individual site's needs and conducted on site. For example, your fork truck training program could be conducted by qualified individuals at your site, on your equipment at a minimal cost.
