What is the 3M Science of Safety?

Science of Safety Overview

Not all training is created equal.

  • In a rapidly evolving business and occupational health and safety landscape, one thing remains the same: the need for effective training and education to help you create and maintain a healthy and safe workplace. Whether you’re part of a large, complex international company, or a small locally owned business, the world moves fast. You need a trusted, reliable resource that you can turn to for help with critical health and safety knowledge.

    That’s where 3M thrives. With over 45 years in the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) business, our experience has helped us create a wide variety of thorough educational content for your use.

    Online, at our site, or at your facility, we can deliver a broad array of training and educational experiences to help safety managers, business owners and workers stay connected, compliant, and most importantly, safe.

How does that take shape?

  • It all starts with people—our dedicated team of technical service employees and training professionals, located in over 70 countries around the world. Many of our Technical Service employees are Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIHs) or Certified Safety Professionals (CSPs), and they’re actively involved in professional safety organizations such as ASSE (American Society of Safety Engineers) and AIHA (American Industrial Hygiene Association).

    In addition, we employ a veteran team of fall protection instructors with experience in everything from fire service, search and rescue and occupational health and safety, to law enforcement and military service. Combined, our technical team is over 300 professionals who are knowledgeable in a variety of diverse industries and applications such as heavy manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation, construction, utilities, food and beverage, mining and welding. With their deep experience, they’re able to craft each learning experience and its content for your company and your workers.
