What is the goal of the Temporary Worker Safety Training Class?
The goal of the Temporary Worker Safety Training class is to inform our candidates of the general hazards in the workplace. Previously, temporary workers were sometimes placed in the most hazardous jobs with little training. This class informs our candidates to the hazards, their rights, and the host employer’s responsibilities to keep them safe.
Temporary Worker Safety Training Class Description
There are critical things that temporary workers need to know to ensure their safety. Depending on the job, these may include knowledge of personal protective equipment(PPE), the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) record keeping system involving injuries & illnesses suffered on the job, the chemicals found at the job site, how to operate powered industrial vehicles such as forklifts, and the potential risks and protective measures related to bloodborne pathogens.
The Maintenance Best training program covers the information temporary workers need to know on the job to work safely. The class also covers the responsibilities of the host employer and what the temporary workers can do when confronted with an injury or unhealthy situation.
Why is this a required Maintenance Best course?
The risk to a temporary worker is high. So much so that the OSHA started the Temporary Worker Initiative to try and reduce the hazards to temporary employees. We want you to understand your rights and the responsibilities of the host employer to make sure you are working in a safe working environment.
