SafetyEd is a teaching, training, and consulting business whose mission includes helping others minimize the potential for injuries and fatalities to field workers–from wildlife biologists to outdoor educators and guides, from traveling classrooms to marine researchers. Through on-site reviews, staff trainings, consultations, and/or formal classes, SafetyEd can help an organizations and its employees better assess risk, improve field practices, minimize the accident potential, and more effectively respond to an emergency or crisis situation.
SafetyEd provides services in the following areas: Accident prevention strategies; Emergency action planning; Safety audits and program reviews; Curriculum assessment and development in all areas of safety education; and Wilderness medicine (i.e., instruction in Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Responder).
SafetyEd is owned and operated by Deb Ajango. Ms. Ajango is the former director of the University of Alaska outoor education department, author/editor of Lessons Learned II: Using Case Studies and History to Improve Safety Education, and Lessons Learned: A Guide to Accident Prevention and Crisis Response. Deb has presented nationally on a variety of outdoor safety topics, and has spent more than 2000 days in remote areas of the world.
