Supervisor's Guide to Understanding OSHA
On-line course: $249

OSHA, in one form or another, applies to every employer and employee. So, if you’re employed or looking for employment, this course applies to you. Knowledge is power.

This course provides current/potential supervisors and other key employees with a thorough working knowledge of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with an emphasis on general industry and manufacturing. Throughout the course, participants with receive comprehensive information on OSHA’s role within the workplace and the tools they need to be a successful administrator.

Participants will be provided an extensive range of OSHA related material through slide presentation, video, discussion, readings, and reference to online materials.  Just some of the topics that will be covered include OSHA’s history, the Code of Federal Regulations, employer responsibilities, inspections, record keeping, NIOSH, statistics, case studies, available resources, and an overview of general standards. This self-paced course is academic in nature and not a substitute for any OSHA required technical, onsite, or hazard-specific trainings, but rather how to be successful in the oversight of OSHA in the workplace.
