 You are invited to experience the labyrinth in a powerful, prayerful and sacred retreat.

Retreat Description: Walking a labyrinth is a lesser known part of the Christian tradition. Our outdoor labyrinth was created in 2001 by Sister Jan Ginzkey and 37 volunteers and is based on the ancient, yet contemporary labyrinth design found in the Cathedral in Chartres, France.

The labyrinth is a metaphor of life. We did not smooth the ground or remove trees because life is not smooth and we meet obstacles along the way. You are invited to experience prayer in a new way by walking the labyrinth. Please join us for meditation and contemplation.

Fatigue Management

Fatigue Management
 
The impacts of human fatigue due to poor sleep are many.  It is estimated that the cost to industry is $1.9 Million per year.  This cost includes increased insurance rates, increased employee healthcare premiums, and a loss of productivity such as employee replacement, increased overtime, and absenteeism. 
 
In construction, emergency services, healthcare, hospitality, government, manufacturing, petroleum, transportation, logistics, utilities industries, employees are required to work long or irregular hours, rotating shifts, perform after hours on-call duties or are subjected to poorly designed work schedules.  These conditions, if left uncorrected, create an unwanted loss of productivity and unresolved workplace safety hazards.
 
Worker Fatigue Management Training: A Hidden Hazard addresses individual and operational causes of fatigue and its ill effects while offering practical, immediate-use coping strategies to protect the worker (employee) and prevent workplace injuries or illnesses.  This course benefits safety professionals, industry managers, supervisors and their employees.
