While OSHA and other applicable laws require employers to provide a safe workplace, workplace safety is more than just a legal matter. A safe workplace increases employee satisfaction, enhances performance, limits liability, and avoids costly conflict and distraction.
This is a general course to teach people the basics of workplace safety including common safety issues, the employer’s safety program (if applicable), reporting injuries, office ergonomics, and workplace violence.
