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.

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.
