OSHA Training: General Industry

OSHA training for employees

Safety Begins with Knowledge

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSHA) was designed to create safe and healthy working conditions for employees through enforcement of defined standards defined within the Act, assisting and encouraging individual state efforts to ensure safe and healthy working conditions, and providing occupational safety and health research, information, education, and training. Under the OSH Act, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace.

Generally, injuries and illnesses in the workplace are not only common and costly but also preventable. Though workplace fatalities are down by more than 60% in the United States, it is best to focus on lowering that statistic because the average time an injured employee takes away from work is eight days.
