Since 2005, the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange (SRBX) Safety Expo has provided thousands of construction professionals with affordable options for necessary safety certifications and advanced safety training. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, SRBX has been required to make a pivot. SRBX and our safety partners are rolling out a schedule of the Expo’s most popular classes, which will be offered throughout 2021 in SRBX’s in-house training facility in East Sacramento. As is customary with the Expo, we believe cost should not be a barrier in accessing safety training. Most classes will be priced at $49 or less, and a number will also be provided in Spanish. If you or your company have other training needs, please let us know!
