Workplace Safety Training

Workplace Safety Online Training Course

While OSHA and other applicable laws require employers to provide a safe workplace, workplace safety is more than just a legal matter. A safe workplace increases employee satisfaction, enhances performance, limits liability, and avoids costly conflict and distraction. The first line of defense against workplace injuries—the first step in creating a healthy workplace and safety-aware workplace—is an informed workforce. Managers and employees need to understand the basics of workplace safety, including workplace violence, the basics of an illness and injury prevention plan, and the importance of reporting.
