Many of OSHA’s standards include specific employee training requirements that employers must follow to ensure compliance and avoid potential citations. There are requirements for who must be trained, course content and language, delivery methods, trainer qualifications, refresher, and recordkeeping.
In order to ensure the effectiveness of your safety program, it must make employees aware of all job risks and be tailored to all employee education levels. In addition to being informative, safety training should also promote engagement and retention. Learning from accidents, modifications, improvements to tasks, and promoting employee engagement in a safe work environment is an integral part of a company’s success, compliance and safety culture.
Join us on February 21 when Joe Keenan, a seasoned safety technical trainer and manager, will present strategies to help you design a safety training program that meets OSHA requirements, engages all levels of employees, and helps improve the overall safety performance of your organization.
