Course Description/Agenda

What's Tougher Than Complying With OSHA?

Staying in compliance with Cal/OSHA, that's what. Lucky you. Because you do business in California, you're facing some of the toughest OSHA standards in the nation.

Right now you have more than 3,000 pages of additional regulations. And Cal/OSHA keeps adding guidelines - often before they're adopted at a federal level. It's scary. After all, you've heard the horror stories - companies just like yours getting fined thousands, even millions of dollars, for making compliance mistakes.

So the last thing you need is to miss - or misunderstand - a Cal/OSHA regulation and have your organization slapped with an expensive citation. But is there a way to guard against fines and violations without wading through confusing manuals the size of telephone books or hiring an expensive safety consultant?

Attend this intensive workshop and gain the skills you need to protect your company from a costly compliance error. After this power-packed session, you'll confidently develop Cal/OSHA training sessions and safety plans. And you'll know how to eliminate potential hazards ... what areas DOSH inspectors zero in on ... and much more.

Master Must-Have Compliance Skills
Getting a citation for anything is bad enough - imagine being cited by Cal/OSHA for something that would have passed under federal regulations. It happens more often than you might think. And it could happen to you if you are not completely up to date on your state's requirements.

That's why we created this workshop: to give you a step-by-step guide to Cal/OSHA - not a rehash of the federal regulations. We've packed this session with powerful exercises so you'll gain practical experience you can use immediately. Some of the skill-building exercises you'll take part in include:

  • Walk through the mandated-bylaw procedures for handling worksite accidents.
  • Discover how to get employees to follow Cal/OSHA requirements (even when they're in a hurry).
  • Pinpoint the areas most likely to be cited in an inspection.

Back at work, whether you're dealing with the bloodborne pathogen rule ... SB 198 requirements ... or lockout/tagout training, you'll discover a new confidence in your abilities. And, during your next inspection, you'll be glad you know exactly how to prove you've done everything you can to stay in compliance ... and keep employees safe.
