Running a cannabis business is complex. Keeping your employees safe, your product sound, and your business profitable takes smart planning.

Every owner and operator needs to ask two questions:

  • “How do I get the right people in my business?”

  • “How do I create a safety culture in my business?”  

  • That’s why CannaSafe Solutions offers live training in these two vital areas. Our training is fun, valuable, and backed by years of real-world experience. This is the guidance you and your employees need to develop a winning team and to build a healthy safety culture within your business.

    We offer two training courses:

    Getting the Right People in the Right Seats

    Finding and developing the right people is essential to your business success. And with people, there’s little margin for error. This course teaches cannabis owners and operators how to screen, hire, and develop the most qualified and skilled managers. You’ll learn how to use behavioral assessments to make informed hiring decisions. You’ll then discover how to make critical hiring and development decisions based on the responses and scores. This course focuses on the DISC and PIAV behavioral models.  DISC tells you "how" people do what they do, and PIAV shows you "why" they do it.  Combined, the two are like having an X-ray of your current or potential employees. This course is valuable for anyone in a management or ownership role.

    • Increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems
    • Facilitate better teamwork and minimize team conflict
    • Develop stronger sales skills by identifying and responding to customer styles
    • Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of employees and team members
    • Become more well-rounded and effective leaders

    Creating a Safety Culture

    You’ve invested so much in your facility, your equipment, and your business. But one safety mistake can cause injury to your employees, damage to your reputation, and financial destruction to your bottom line. This is where “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Creating a safety culture allows you to save money while improving safety and health in your facility.  Some studies estimate that a good safety and health program can save $4 to $6 for every $1 invested. That's because injuries and illnesses decline, workers' compensation costs go down, and medical costs decrease. And there are other benefits, too: reduced absenteeism, lower turnover, increased morale, and higher productivity.  For all of these reasons, it’s vital that you establish a working safety culture within your company. But how? This course shows you the steps to managing your cultivation or extraction facility more safely and effectively. You will find out how to create a safety culture for your business, what needs to be in your safety plan, and how to get your employees to comply.

    • Explore how to make safety a part of your corporate brand by embracing technology. We’re going to take a birds eye view at the whole subject of safety and how you go about implementing it in your company.
    • Foster a truly effective safety culture.  While intentions are good, in many cases the development of written health and safety programs has done little to contribute to fewer and less severe occupational accidents.
    • Integrate written safety and health programs into your daily operating procedures.  Studies have shown that an estimated 80% of workplace accidents are the result of unsafe acts, not unsafe conditions*.
    • Reduce accidents and improve your safety culture.  Discover how to put people in jobs that are match their behavioral style, which helps lower workplace incidents.
