The START Center, located in Decatur, Illinois, is an 8,700-square-foot facility focused on safety, technical and reliability training.

Our building houses four modern classrooms perfect for any type of training. We supplement that space with two hands-on industrial workshops, which include a variety of training stations ideal for our industrial customers.

Trainees will be able to get hands-on instruction on topics such as fall protection, lockout/tagout, confined space, welding, ladder safety, scaffold building and many more.

Our facility is also perfect for corporate meetings and training, with rooms available for rent. Our classrooms make for a great space for presentations, with built-in audio/visual components and a removable wall for larger groups.

START’s many courses are taught by our in-house qualified OSHA Outreach trainers, and we also bring in outside instructors and experts for industry-specific courses valuable to you and your company. Our instructors combine lectures and presentations with hands-on training in our industrial workshops.

Our on-site safety professionals provide you with the safest work environment while keeping your costs low. We have the capability to manage short- or long-term projects, performing compliance audits and inspections at your company or job site. START can help supplement your regular safety team or provide additional assistance for special projects.

Our safety supervisors give personal, professional attention to your safety programs and procedures. START employees undergo extensive and continuous training to ensure we’re ahead of the curve.
