What is a SAFE Supported Business?

SSB’s are businesses that have committed to preventing and effectively addressing harassment at their place of business through an ongoing partnership with SAFE. That means:

  • 100% of leadership is BASE Trained
  • 100% of new employees are BASE Trained as part of their onboarding
  • At least 30% of current staff are initially BASE Trained, with the ultimate goal of 100% trained.
  • SAFE Institute experts have reviewed and approved their harassment policies and procedures.
  • Signage is posted at the business about what to do if you are harassed or assaulted.
  • Certification is valid for one year. Additional training topics will be available in future years after BASE training is completed.

"Is it weird to say you loved your sexual harassment training? Well, we did. We especially appreciated the high degree of customization and the trainers’ considerable expertise. I strongly recommend it for Executive teams and Boards. The BASE Program has my highest endorsement. "
