Onsite Safety & Health Training at Work
WHAT GENERAL AWARENESS TRAINING IS
General awareness training is the basic instruction-based training your company would provide to employees in effort to comply with OSHA.
HOW IT WORKS
- Free Phone Consultation: Our Consultants conduct an interview-type of consultation over the phone to determine which topics are applicable and gather detailed information.
- Written Program Development: Lancaster Safety will then develop written programs for applicable each topic.
- Onsite Training & Workplace Jobsite Assessment: We’ll then send an OSHA Consultant & Trainer to your workplace to conduct an interactive, PPT presentation on all of the required training. This training typically lasts anywhere from 3-6 hours depending on the amount of topics, employee questions and break times.
DETERMINING WHAT TRAINING IS NEEDED
OSHA has various requirements for what training topics are needed and the frequency they are to be retrained. Fill out the form below to request a breakdown of the most popular training topics, when they are required, and how often.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for
providing a safe and healthful workplace. No person should ever have to be injured,
become ill, or die for a paycheck.
IS 10/30 HOUR TRAINING REQUIRED?
Some states and certain types of jobsites may require employees or supervisors to complete an OSHA 10-hour or 30-hour OSHA outreach course and obtain a card but this is not a federal OSHA requirement. Training emphasizes hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards.
OSHA 10-hour and 30-hour are beneficial trainings for strengthening your employee’s knowledge, however, it cannot count towards other OSHA required training. We recommend that companies utilize these Outreach Trainings as a supplemental tool in their safety program. Annual training shall still be conducted on employees’ exposure to safety and health hazards. All employees should also have initial on-the-job type training so they are mindful of their specific workplace hazards.
