Worker injuries cost not only employers and workers, but everyone. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 24,000 workers are hurt and 17 are killed during every eight-hour workday. Accidents also cost businesses over $100 billion dollars every year in direct and indirect costs. In order to protect workers and reduce the costs of accidents, many companies create Occupational Safety and Health programs. This course will teach employees about OSH programs and how they protect workers. Employees will learn to identify the impact of injuries and accidents in the workplace, elements of safety management, types of workplace analysis, methods to control workplace hazards, and the several types of employee safety and health training. This course is intended for employees who work in any facility that has created and implemented an occupational safety and health program. It is designed to assist employers in improving employee understanding, compliance and participation with regard to OSH programs and safety initiatives.
