03 Aug INEFFECTIVE TRAINING: A ROOT CAUSE OF SAFETY VIOLATIONS
Employee safety has to be priority number one, and most companies would prefer to avoid an OSHA audit if they can prevent it. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has training requirements in fall protection, electrical safety, lockout-tagout, respiratory protection, and machine guarding.
One of the most common violations reported by OSHA is the failure to train operators. Training and education are key elements to a strong injury prevention program that can help businesses reduce workplace hazards before workers get hurt, while also reducing significant costs to employers.
“We not only focus our training curriculum to provide operators with the skills to safely and effectively operate the machine but to optimize their setups and achieve their targeted results the first time and safely. If you want to reduce your exposure and ensure your people are productive as soon as the machine comes out of the box, get them Factory Certified Training”
– Jim Miller, Global Training Manager
