OSHA Awareness Training

OSHA Awareness Training Class Description

The video begins with an introduction to OSHA and its purpose to protect American workers. Under the OSH Act, employees have rights and employers have responsibilities to provide a safe working environment.

The videos provide general awareness to candidates by breaking down the different categories of hazards in the workplace. After taking the class and watching the videos, candidates know what the potential hazards might be in the workplace. The class also provides recommended solutions to guard against some of the more common hazards. Exit routes, for example, must not be obstructed or locked and should be properly marked.

Why is this a required Maintenance Best Course?

Temporary workers are being used increasingly and OSHA has found that these workers are more prone to be placed in hazardous situations without proper training and equipment. OSHA is so concerned that they started the Temporary Worker Initiative (TWI) to protect Temporary workers. TWI places clear responsibility for worker safety on the Host Employer and the Staffing agency. Temporary workers need to know this information to protect themselves and others while on the job.
