The Essentials of OSHA Compliance
A comprehensive 2-day update in workplace safety issues and the latest OSHA regulations
Just when you think
youve got a handle on OSHAs complex rules and regulations,
the agency issues a new standard, changes the record-keeping requirements
or mandates additional training.
And, if one seemingly small regulatory change slips past
you, your organization becomes a ticking time bomb, waiting for an OSHA
inspection to set it off. Make a mistake in how you interpret those confusing
existing regulations and standards and whammo! your company
can be socked with staggering fines for OSHA violations.
Whats worse much worse is that when
your safety efforts miss the mark, your employees are at risk for serious
injuries, even death. Some 50 workers are injured on the job every minute
of the workday. Safety hazards in workplaces take the lives of an average
of 17 employees every week.
