Course Description

The Essentials of OSHA Compliance: A 30-Hour Course
A 5-Day Compliance Course for Safety Professionals

Prove how seriously you take your responsibility when you attend this essential compliance course that will answer every OSHA question you have.

Program Description:

Show your commitment to safety and reduce the risk for accidents, complaints, and illness in your organization As a safety-minded business professional, OSHA compliance is a 24/7 concern for you. The financial benefits of keeping your work site and employees safe are critical. Avoiding accidents, illnesses, and injuries not only keeps your workers healthy and on the job; it keeps you out of legal hot water! When you’re looking for answers to tough compliance questions or up-to-the-minute regulation changes, we’ve got what you need.

This powerful 5-Day Compliance Course gives you the best chance to quickly self-audit your facility for potential hazards … set up employee training programs that work (and get followed to the letter!) … and protect your company from costly fines and penalties if the OSHA inspector shows up on your doorstep. And, when you successfully complete this course, you will receive your OSHA 30-hour training card – a powerful emblem of “good faith” to any OSHA inspector, and a symbol of trust between you and your employees!

Arm yourself with the skills and information you need to keep your organization safe, healthy – and legally compliant!

This all-inclusive training is the perfect solution for you if you’re concerned about the effectiveness of your safety procedures. Because even if you haven’t had an accident yet, that doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the future. Plus, when it only takes one disgruntled employee to make a discreet phone call, you could find a team of OSHA inspectors on your doorstep before you know it! And, once they find one little thing wrong – the “domino effect” kicks in and they’ll find dozens of things wrong. Can your work site stand up to that kind of scrutiny right this second?

Exercises and group discussions make this event educating AND enjoyable!
We’ve never understood why OSHA training carries a stigma of being boring, mundane, and monotonous. This course is different. Packed with stimulating exercises … thought-provoking discussions led by OSHA-certified trainers … and cutting-edge compliance information, it’s a dynamic, exciting learning event that is unlike any other you’ve ever had. You’ll be so energized and recharged after each day, you won’t want to wait to get back to work and start using what you’ve learned. We guarantee it!
