Augusta, GA (PRWEB) November 12, 2011 -- MAU Workforce Solutions will be hosting an OSHA 10 Hour General Industry Outreach Training Course at the Marion Hatcher Center in Augusta, GA December 6th-7th.
The 10-hour program is ideal for supervisors with safety and health responsibilities, and for employee safety and health awareness. Students will be introduced to OSHA policies, procedures and standards as well as general industry safety and health principles covered in OSHA Act Part 1910. Special emphasis will be placed on areas most hazardous using OSHA standards as a guide.
Rob Loose, the Safety and Risk Manager at MAU says, “Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a General Industry Outreach training completion card but more importantly, will walk away with a better understanding of what OSHA expects of employers with regard to 29 CFR 1910.”
Deadline for registration is Thursday, December 1st. Minimum required class size is 15.
Frank Spinney, the course teacher and Safety and Training Team Leader for MAU says, “I’m proud to be able to present this training. Meeting the OSHA Standard is the first step in getting an organization where they need to be from a safety point of view. It’s the first step because the OSHA Standards are the minimum standards one should strive for in taking care of their employees.”
Spinney adds, “Meeting or exceeding the OSHA standards is the law and it’s a responsibility employers share to take care of the health and safety of employees. The fact that MAU is providing this training for its clients and other local businesses reveals the importance that our company places on the safety of its employees. We want to share our commitment to safety with those we serve.”
