“As the leading Roofing Industry Risk Advisor, it is critical that our roofing clients have access to loss control, fleet management and OSHA compliance training. Brauner Safety is our leading safety and loss control partner. We serve many common roofing professionals with Jim Brauner and his firm. I have personally known Jim for for over 20 years, and he provides a wealth of knowledge to the roofing industry. CERTA training is one of the areas that Jim has made a positive impact on risk mitigation.  Historically torch losses in the roofing industry average nationally a minimum of $1M a month in financial loss.

"Jim's method of training was very informative, and he was able to keep the attention of our crews.  He is a professional speaker and obviously has tremendous knowledge of torch applied roofing systems... Many of my men came to me the following day and stated that they really did get a lot out of the training. Having field personnel recognize the value of the training is outstanding.  I would highly recommend contacting Jim if you are looking for CERTA training.
