Until a few years ago, workers in the United States faced remarkably high safety and health risks on the job. Through the efforts of individual workers, unions, employers, government agencies and others, considerable progress has been made in improving these conditions.

Today, both federal and state occupational safety and health regulations are broad and far-reaching. They require employers in most industries to keep their places of employment safe and free of recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.

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. By following a few simple guidelines, such as those outlined in this course, the risks of injury or illness can often be reduced or eliminated.

The topics covered in the course include —

  • Safe handling of hazardous substances
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Industrial machinery
  • Back pain
  • Forklifts and other industrial trucks
  • Cumulative trauma disorders and bloodborne diseases
  • Accidents will happen
  • Compliance audits
