OSHA Safety & Health (PD-OS&01)

$40.00

Course Description

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), part of the U.S. Department of Labor, has a mission to save lives, prevent injuries and protect the health of America’s workers. OSHA does this by collaborating with workplaces to build worker safety and health programs that prevent problems before they occur. Regardless of company size or industry types, workers can intentionally or accidentally be placed in harm’s way. Workplace accidents not only impact the person suffering an injury, but also have a severe financial impact on the organization and can lead to government sanctions. Smart businesses know this, and work with OSHA and other organizations to prevent problems before they occur.
