"We were extremely happy with the training you recently conducted for us.  The feedback I've received from our employees has been very positive.  We have a mature workforce so many of our employees have been through this training several times.  Your upbeat training style and extensive subject knowledge made the training sessions interesting and enjoyable.  You succeeded in teaching "even the old dogs some new tricks" in Hazard Communication.  I look forward to working with you again on our future training needs"---- Plant Mgr, Primary Metal Mfg.  

"Our company has had the pleasure of working with Avanti for the last few years.  We can whole hardheartedly acknowledge that fact that we world be lost without their services.  Julie has great people skills and relates well with our employees.  Using Avanti's services is a worthwhile investment and has helped to ensure the safety of the employee's as well as the company's well being.  Julie is knowledgeable, detailed, as well as goal oriented.  Get your program on track with Avanti Safety!!"

"Avanti Safety has become an important component of our safety effort.  Avanti provides informative and entertaining training sessions for our employees.  Her periodic audits alert us to areas needing improvement.  She is very timely in answering any questions we may have regarding compliance and general safety practices.  Avanti has been instrumental in helping us improve our company's safety and in keeping us up-to-date on changes in the safety laws and regulations."

     ---Hr Director, Wood Product Manufacturer  

"We have worked with Avanti for several years and we feel our shop has done a 180 degree turn around in both safety awareness and the safety attitude of our employees.  Julie is so organized that she keeps me on track and gently reminds me to complete safety tasks at hand.  She speaks to our employees clearly and carefully so they don't feel things are being forced down their throat.  I've worked with other consultants in the past, and there is a huge difference between the level of professionalism and assistance.  Avanti is the tops!"

     ---VP, Mfg and Steel Fab

"Julie/Avanti Safety has been providing safety training for our company for many years.  We continue to partner with her for several reasons:  Primarily quality of content and delivery -as is evident by the comments made by our employees who have attended training classes."

     ---Safety Director, Medical Systems Mfg

  While our company has always placed an emphasis on safety, our management of the process was relatively poor.  Records, policies, documentation and focus was inconsistent.  Avanti helped us transition from "fore bullet points" in our employee handbook to a full and comprehensive system.  We wouldn't be without Avanti!
