With the current congressional climate, some employers may feel that the need for compliance with OSHA is waning. However, if OSHA compliance is an employer’s primary concern, chances are very good that those organizations are missing out on the benefits of an aggressive safety and health program such as: safer work environment, increased production, higher quality, lower insurance premiums, reduced operating costs and improved employee morale.
This compliance course is designed to present detailed information about how the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHAct) may/must be implemented in the workplace, not only to achieve OSHA compliance, but to achieve profitability and survivability in today’s cost-conscious environment. We will introduce attendees to the OSHA standards that govern General Industry, explain how to read and use the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs), and provide an overview of compliance programs and procedures that are required for the workplace. Topics covered are intended for all private sector personnel, and those public sector employers who utilize Federal OSHA standards as directed by state requirements.
During this extensive course, in-depth workshops will assist you in applying learned skills, increasing familiarity with using the CFR book, advancing your knowledge of OSHA regulations. OSHA’s most frequently cited serious violations will be covered as well as mandated training requirements, and safety policies and procedures. A workshop hazard perception challenge activity will engage active learning techniques.
