Safety Training for a More Productive Work Force
When your workers know how to do their jobs safely, you save money and have a more productive work force. Safety training & environmental consultants are in the business of helping you decide what training your staff requires and designing the best safety training and environmental health programs for your business. Here are five of the most important safety training courses offered by most safety training & environmental consultants. Many of these courses are applicable across multiple industries. Would your employees benefit from one of them?
Ergonomics training can help your employees avoid repetitive stress injuries as well as strain injuries. Safety training & environmental consultants can also help you evaluate your workplace and workstations for ergonomic safety, which can increase productivity and reduce time lost to headaches, muscle strain and other injuries related to poor work positioning and posture.
Asbestos Awareness Training
If your business is located in an older building, there's a pretty significant chance that your employees may come into contact with asbestos at some point. This is especially true of your maintenance and janitorial staff. Training them to recognize possible asbestos exposures minimizes the chance of exposure for your staff. If your business is in a building with asbestos containing materials, you may be required to offer asbestos awareness training by OSHA. If that's the case, your company could face fines if you don't provide the required training.
OSHA requires workplaces to meet specific standards for walk surface safety, as well as fall protection standards to prevent injuries from falls. Safety training & environmental consultants can work with your business in a number of ways to ensure that your workplace meets all required standards. Environmental consultants will do workplace evaluations and make recommendations to bring your work environment up to code for all fall safety standards.
Personal Protective Equipment
In many industries, personal protective equipment such as respiratory masks, protective goggles, hard hats and steel boots are a required part of job safety. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, however, most people who suffer from head, eye and foot injuries were not wearing personal protective equipment when they were injured. PPE training delivered by safety training & environmental consultants can help you comply with OSHA requirements for assessment, training and compliance regarding personal protective equipment.
In addition to these basic safety training courses, safety training & environmental consultants also provide more specialized training, including HAZWOPER training, SafeLand training and other environmental safety training programs.
