Safety should absolutely be a number one priority in every business and every industry. For the most part, it is, especially since safety standards are set and enforced by OSHA. But what is OSHA anyway? We offer a great OSHA course to answer questions just like that one. Read on to learn the benefits of taking our course for you and your business.
Who Or What Is OSHA?
OSHA, or the Occupation Safety and Health Act, refers to both a legislation and the resulting federal agency designed to uphold it. The fundamental purpose of OSHA is to protect both employers and employees across the entire country. Since the program is federal, states can’t choose not to institute the safety guidelines, meaning that all of the people in the country are protected.
Why Is There Training?
OSHA training is designed to help both employers and employees to understand their rights and responsibilities in terms of workplace safety. Thee are often 2 separate courses, one considerably longer than the other. The longer course is about 30 hours and it is designed for both workers and supervisors, essentially those who have safety responsibilities. The shorter course is about 10 hours and it is a less intense but still designed to help employees to prevent and identify job related hazards and respond accordingly.
What Makes Our Training Great?
Our course is a 10 hour course designed for anyone and everyone who needs to know about the basics of OSHA and keep themselves safe on a job site. Our training includes safe work practices as well as accident prevention and safety hazard identification. We also offer driving safety courses, scissor lift and other equipment training, and ongoing professional development. We hold monthly safety meetings and weekly toolbox talks. We are proud of our own safety practices, including incentivising good safety records and implementing tools like Navtrek on our vehicles.
At the end of the day, there really isn’t such a thing as too safe. Being safe on the job is both a right and a responsibility and it is one we take very seriously. Regardless of your field, an OSHA safety certification course provides valuable information that you can apply today and in the future. Remember, safety isn’t a goal, it’s a requirement.
