The MEL Safety Institute (MSI) has combined all of the training resources into a single catalog for your easy reference. These resources have been categorized into three types:


MSI LIVE features real-time, instructor-led classes and webinars. Experienced instructors provide an interactive experience for the learner on a broad spectrum of safety and risk control topics. Most MSI LIVE offerings have been awarded continuing education credits for municipal designations and certifications. The MSI LIVE catalog provides a description of the course, the intended audience, and available credits.


MSI NOW provides on-demand streaming videos and online classes that can be viewed 24/7 by our members. Topics pertain to many aspects of safety, risk control, employment practices, and supervision and most can be viewed in under 20 minutes.


MSI DVD includes a library of over 1,000 DVDs. The DVDs can be requested and held for 2 weeks so they can be shown at a convenient time. A postage-paid envelope is included to return the DVD after viewing.
