Assisting You With Your Workplace Safety Training

For more than 12 years, Great Basin Safety has provided safety training and consulting to ensure that companies comply with MSHA and OSHA regulations. Whether on-site or online, our founders Wes and Cindy White work hard to ensure that your employees are well versed in responsible safety procedures.

A Message from Wes

"In my career, I have had the pleasure of being responsible for equipment operation and maintenance, held the positions of team leader, shift supervisor, EMS Coordinator, Loss Control, and Safety Manager. Providing team-building opportunities for corporations as an OSHA/MSHA trainer, I have worked surface, underground coal, metal, nonmetal, and most recently rail services.

A Safety consultant should enable you and your company to champion safety. I want to meet your people, see your job sites, and help you to provide a culture of safety and health for all employees. Including NEPA Fire Safety Training."
