Maryland MEP Training: OSHA 30 TRAINING
- This event has passed.
Your company’s leaders have the significant responsibility of providing a safe workplace for their employees. But while recognizing and preventing injuries is essential for all employees, supervisors also have obligations to maintain detailed records and undertake reporting to avoid infractions. Managers are also accountable for correcting safety concerns before they turn into preventable accidents. OSHA won’t accept “I didn’t know” or “that’s not my responsibility” as a resolution, nor will it provide any solace to an injured worker or their family. Do your leaders readily know what their safety responsibilities are?
The 30-hour course is a comprehensive safety program and is intended for supervisors, safety directors, and lead workers with safety responsibilities. This course is designed to provide information on OSHA compliance issues, record-keeping, and reporting, and to assist employers in training their employees on the practices of identifying, reducing, eliminating, and reporting workplace hazards. Students who successfully complete this course will receive an OSHA 30-Hour General Industry wallet card from the OSHA Training Institute (OTI).
