…Great Class! It was very informative and eye-opening for the actual workload of a true PSM Coordinator Job. I will make it a goal for 2019 to have our Plant Engineers attend the Basics class and I hope to have the Chief Engineer attend the Advanced Class. Everything was very well put together. Kudos for a great program. John Schramm, Corporate Safety Officer, Quality Refrigerated Services
