The Occupational Safety and Health Administration believes that employee safety and health training helps to protect workers from injuries and illnesses. OSHA emphasizes its point through standards that require employers to train their employees in safety and health. Certain jobs are limited to employees who are “certified,” “competent” or “qualified.”

Today, both federal and state occupational safety and health regulations are broad and far-reaching. Accordingly, more and more companies are tightening their safety and health policies, demanding that everyone, from top manager to most recently hired trainee, play an important role in maximizing workplace safety and health.

We have developed a OSHA Health & Safety Compliance programs through which your company can meet its compliance burden without the necessity of locating and employing a full-time safety director. You get the expertise you need at a cost you can afford – with no employer taxes, health insurance or vacation days.
