Safety isn’t about the hardhat, respirator or vest; it’s about the people who wear them. Signature Safety believes that in order to build a world-class safety culture, your workforce must have the knowledge to recognize hazards so that they can play a major role in keeping themselves, and their co-workers, safe. Signature Safety offers in-person classes on all safety topics, utilizing both traditional instruction and virtual reality “field trips”. The virtual reality allows us to take our classes to places we’ve never been able to go before, from inspections of heavy equipment performing civil work to high-rise construction.
We use virtual reality to enhance many of our classes. Virtual Reality allows us to do things that would have previously been impossible in a classroom setting, such as inspecting a scaffold right down to its rusty bolts, or observing the use of a tower crane up close. Not only does this give a break from the traditional lecture format, it has also been proven to increase knowledge retention among students.
“I have known John Braun for several years as a work colleague and trusted professional safety consultant. Phelps Construction Group has used Signature Safety as our third-party safety consultant since their inception. While we manage our own safety program, Signature Safety has been a vital partner in performing project safety audits, attending our company safety committee meetings, and providing frequent training for our employees. Our employees look at Signature Safety as an extension of our company. I have referred Signature Safety to many of our industry trade partners and will continue to do so.”Jeffrey S. Rainforth, Phelps Construction Group
“We have turned to Signature Safety for site safety professionals for approximately ten years, when our EMR was increasing slightly. With that concern, we needed in-field safety support. Not only has Signature provided strong personnel, but the support they provide in the field has helped substantially reduce our EMR. In addition, their management support and responsiveness is unparalleled in such a fast-paced and ever-changing industry.”Eric Berkowsy, VP Berkowsky & Associates, Inc.
“I have worked with Signature Safety for almost four years now. The personnel at Signature Safety are the true definition of a “Safety Professional.” Their knowledge and customer service skills are the standards others should be judged by.”Jim Stephens, Director Corporate Safety BlueLine Rental
“Signature Safety provided a professional safety manager and electrical training for Genesis Engineers for the North American headquarters for a major pharmaceutical company.

“I have found Signature Safety to be a knowledgeable, versatile group of safety professionals. They have provided me well-qualified people whenever I needed them. I look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.”Dawn Clark, Health, Safety, & Environmental Manager Jones Lang LaSalle
John Duffy has nearly 20 years of construction safety experience. Prior to that, he worked in the trades, giving him the ability to develop excellent rapport with the workforce attending his classes. He has worked in almost every aspect of construction, with the ten years prior to joining Signature Safety spent as the EHS Manager for one of the nation’s largest mechanical contractors.
Dwayne Fitzpatrick comes to us from Travelers Insurance after 20 years at Lendlease construction. His combined construction safety and risk control experience, as well as his degree in Construction Management, gives him a unique perspective which he brings to his classes.
Rich Sfraga has worked in construction safety for nearly 20 years with much of the last several years spent managing complex projects in pharmaceutical settings. Before joining Signature Safety 8 years ago, he was the COO of a safety firm based in NYC, where they have some of the strictest safety requirements in the US.
It depends. We can tailor most of our classes to your needs, whether that includes our new and engaging virtual reality training or in-person training at our facility or yours.
In many cases we can do either, but keep in mind that OSHA does not allow for virtual classes for such courses as the 10 and 30 hour Outreach training.
OSHA doesn’t “certify” anything. For the OSHA 10 and 30 Hour courses, students will receive cards issued directly from OSHA. For all other classes, cards will be issued attesting to the fact that the class was conducted in accordance with the applicable OSHA regulations (and/or any other regulations that may apply).
Yes, many of our courses are also available in Spanish.
It depends on the class. In some cases, we can offer one-on-one training. Other classes including the OSHA 10 Hour Construction and OSHA 30 Hour Construction classes require a minimum of three people.
Again, this depends. Some classes, such as the OSHA 10 and 30 have a maximum of 40 people, but we need to take into account other factors, such as facility size. Other classes like first aid/CPR could have limits of 10-12 people due to the requirements of the certifying organization.
