The Essentials of OSHA Compliance On-Site Training
A comprehensive 2-day update in workplace safety issues and the latest OSHA regulations
Just when you think you've got a handle on OSHA's 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.
What's 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.
This Workshop Keeps You Current on the Ever-Changing Rules
Keeping your workplace compliant with OSHA's ever-changing rules -- and safe
for your employees -- is a never-ending headache where the stakes couldn't be
higher. But your job just got a whole lot easier, thanks to an intensive, new
2-day workshop: The Essentials of OSHA Compliance.
This must-attend training program features a comprehensive update on the very
latest changes in OSHA rules and guidelines. In addition, it provides you with

compliance -- and maintaining a safer workplace.

verbally assaulted at work every year. You'll learn where your organization is
most at risk, how to shore up holes in your security, and warning signs that an
