OSHA's Position On Safety Orientation Training
One of the first things that an employer does when a new employee is hired is to have that individual go through a structured orientation. Besides the standard HR topics, etc., safety training is considered essential. This can involve a number of different mandatory OSHA topics related to hazardous work environment communication all the way to proper ergonomics for office workers. This is something that remains crucial no matter what type of industry you’re talking about since accidents and injury, besides the harm that is suffered by employees, are the source of one of the most costly expenses in the country’s overall work environment, according to statistics.
