Collaboration provides enhanced safety and human resources support

MINNEAPOLIS (February 2, 2016) – MRA–The Management Association and the Minnesota Safety Council have entered into a new partnership that provides easier access to workplace safety and human resources support for members of both organizations. The partnership includes enhanced training options, expanded resources, and member discounts for selected MRA and Minnesota Safety Council events.

"In many organizations, human resources and occupational safety are shared responsibilities," said Minnesota Safety Council President Paul Aasen, "and in any organization, collaboration between those functions is essential for a strong safety culture. Our goal is to make it easier for members to get the support they need in both of these critical areas."

"This partnership furthers a shared goal of helping member companies protect their employees and remain compliant with federal regulations while becoming more profitable and productive," said MRA President and CEO Susan Fronk.

To schedule a group interview to learn more about the partnership and benefits available to both MRA and Minnesota Safety Council members, contact Ann Kline, MRA Marketing Manager, or Ann Kulenkamp, Director of Communications, Minnesota Safety Council.
