OSHA Compliance for a Safe and Healthy Worksite

COURSE
GO1 Content

In 1970, 14,000 U.S. workers were killed on the job. A year later, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was established, and by the year 2010 the number of work-related deaths in the U.S. had dropped to 4,500.

While OSHA has saved thousands of lives and prevented numerous injuries since it was established in 1971, more remains to be done. OSHA estimates that injuries and illnesses in the workplace can be reduced by an additional 40%. What’s more, the costs to business of illness and injury in the workplace remain a staggering $170 billion per year.

In this two-module course we discuss the prerequisites for compliance with OSHA regulations, as well as the business benefits of preventing injury and illness on the job. To assist your learning, each module includes a brief test-yourself quiz.
