Safety groups

There's safety in numbers.

Our safety group program emphasizes the importance of creating and maintaining a safety culture. One of the safety group requirements involves member training.

What training is considered approved for safety groups?

Pre-approved training courses

We've created a list of pre-approved risk management training courses that address issues specific to the industry safety group or hazard grouping. Please request this training by contacting your safety consultant at least 30 days in advance of your training session.

Online training

Select JJ Keller Online Training that’s at least 45 minutes in length fulfills safety group training requirements. Choose from hundreds of topics, and you may select a topic that isn’t specific to your industry. However, safety experts suggest that you choose a safety training topic that will best help to protect your employees.
Please note:
- JJ Keller video-on-demand courses do not fulfill safety group training requirements.

- Online Training is only to be used to satisfy safety group training requirements.

- Scores must meet or exceed 90%.

Register for a training

Begin by browsing the online training course catalog. To register, simply email safetyoncall@pinnacol.com and we will set you up in the J.J. Keller learning management system.

How do you pre-approve a risk management training session that isn't given by your safety services team?

Any training session not delivered by us must tie to risk management topics such as claims management, workplace safety, return to work, best practices for hiring and/or training new employees, provider relations, SIU, underwriting and OSHA standards. Please complete the Safety Group Training Approval Request form and submit to your safety consultant at least 45 days in advance of the training session.
Please note, Safety Group Training Approval Requests should be received no less than 45 days prior to the training.  Any requests received after the training was held will not be approved..

Should I track safety group participation at a training session?

Yes, please track participation for all safety group training sessions. Once your training has been approved, you'll receive an email from us with an Attendance Tracking spreadsheet. For additional information, please contact your agency relations manager.

Do webinars satisfy a safety group training requirement?

Webinars no longer satisfy the safety group training requirement. However, the Cost Containment Certification (CCC) webinars are still available for viewing.
If you have any questions, please email Safety On Call at safetyoncall@pinnacol.com.
