As uncertainty follows all of us into 2021, one thing we as safety professionals can expect is that safety hazards can and will continue to exist in our workplaces. No matter how long you have been in the profession, you know the importance of promoting workplace safety and health, and helping your colleagues become more knowledgeable about workplace hazards. Managing safety and health through a pandemic can make our jobs even more difficult. Here at Wisconsin Safety Council, we understand that importance to you and your workplace. We also understand that your time during a pandemic is a precious commodity.
That is why we are offering our OSHA 30 Hour General Industry Course virtually – and more importantly, broken out into two two-day groupings. Being virtual, you can stay safe and work from your office or home as well as save time on commuting to and from class. Our program is a voluntary program where you will be provided with training on the recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of workplace hazards in general industry. This course also will provide you with overview information regarding OSHA, including workers’ rights, employer responsibilities (including information regarding COVID-19) and how to file a complaint.
If you feel that you have a good understanding of this type of information, then it may be time to consider having a team member from your safety committee, a supervisor or manager, or a worker with a passion for safety at your workplace take this course to help create a well-rounded group of safety leaders at your company. The more people at your workplace who understand and promote the importance of safety and health as well as hazard recognition and abatement, the better you can create a world-class culture of safety.
After the course is completed, you will leave with knowledge related to hazards that may be encountered back on the job. Also, you will leave with a better understanding of the hazard assessment process of: identification, avoidance, control and prevention of hazards. In addition to the course materials, there will be multiple handouts and supplemental information that can be taken back to the workplace and implemented into your safety program.
Our upcoming course is February 8, 9, 15, and 16, and it will be held virtually with a live instructor. If this time or setting doesn’t work for you, WSC offers private training of this and other courses as well. To schedule a private training, please contact WSC at 608-258-3400 or firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing and availability.
