Green Dot for the Trades



GDT Workshops were developed to support organizations in achieving four goals: (1) Prevent all forms of harassment, (2) Create a workplace climate of dignity and respect, (3) Enhance safety and productivity, and (4) Retain a diverse and talented workforce. Meeting these goals helps ensure employers can get quality work done safely, on time, and within budget for every project. And that is good for business.


Training includes two workshops. The workshops focus on building the skills necessary to create a healthy and respectful workplace climate and intervene in harassing situations. Workshops are designed for leadership (e.g., company owners, executive leadership, and mid-level supervisors; project managers and foremen) and for the general workforce (staff members, sub-contractors, journeymen, apprentices, craftworkers).


Each workshop can be delivered in-person, virtually, and through eLearning. Having multiple options ensures training is scalable, readily accessible, and that employers can achieve full training compliance on projects or jobsites with intricate work scheduling.

Training Team

Alteristic has a highly skilled and diverse training team with more than 100 years combined experience delivering training, both virtually and in-person, to organizations diverse in size, structure, and workforce characteristics. This elite team has earned a cumulative average across thousands of participants of 97% finding them to be both engaging instructors and effective facilitators.


An unparalleled feature of our eLearning course is our ability to customize every element. The narrators, testimonials, scenarios, videos, illustrations, and activities can all be tailored to ensure the program resonates with workers and staff members and reflects the unique characteristics of your company, project, or jobsite.

Multi-Year Program

GDT is designed to be implemented companywide for the duration of a project. It is ideal for dedicated staff members or workers on a job for an extended period to attend multiple workshops over time. Rather than repeating the same workshop, GDT includes multiple versions that review the four steps, while varying the framing, activities, testimonials, scenarios, and examples.

Need Customized Solutions?

Green Dot for the Trades is not a one-size-fits-all program. It is designed to allow each company or contractor to customize all three elements of the program – training, social marketing, and evaluation – to reflect the unique characteristics of their workplace or jobsite.
