In recent years, the term ‘regulations’ has come under fire with many claiming that there are too many, that they are stifling industry. Perhaps in some areas that’s true, but when it comes to health and safety regulations in industrial workplaces, it’s important to keep in mind that every regulation you come across was enacted because of the death or serious injury of someone else.
In 1970, the year before the Occupational Safety and Health Administration was Established, it’s estimated that around 14,000 workers were killed on the job. By 2016, thanks to a number of workplace safety regulations and comprehensive safety training programs, that number dropped to 5,190 fatal work injuries.
While the reduction of fatal work injuries is the absolute, number one reason for industrial workplaces to have a comprehensive safety-training program, it’s not the only reason. The following is a quick look at a few of the other key benefits of emphasizing workplace safety and ensuring all industrial workplace employees are trained in OSHA safety courses:
When you need something important done, you go to the best in the industry to get it done. When it comes to training workplace safety, there is no better format than OSHA safety courses. That’s because OSHA has been working as an organization to solely reduce workplace injuries and fatalities since 1971. There is simply no other organization that has the history, resource, and knowledge of best industrial workplace safety practices.
