Is safety training really that important? At Safety Solutions & Supply, we know it is. And we’re here to make sure you do, too.
We could include all the details about how OSHA requires it, how it makes your employees feel safe, or even how it make your company more professional. But the fact of the matter is that thousands of people die in their workplace each year because of a lack of proper safety training.
When a worker is properly trained, they understand their rights, know about specific hazards they may be exposed to, and know how to protect themselves from those hazards. They’re also familiar with the equipment they use so there are no “rookie mistakes.” Instead, they will begin their job with the knowledge needed to be efficient at their tasks and the knowledge to perform well.
If your employee is not properly trained and there is an accident, you could face costly medical bills, an increase in insurance costs, equipment damage, OSHA citations, and lawsuits. Add to that scenario the lost time and expense of training another employee to replace the one who was injured. That’s a lot of time and money wasted, all because the proper training wasn’t in place.
Proper training is vital to a successful and safe work environment. This training starts by developing a plan. If you need help developing a plan, do you research to learn what OSHA requires. This will give you a good idea of the classes you need to offer your employees. In addition to that training, you should also include basic classes such as First Aid, CPR, AED, etc. In doubt about whether you should offer a specific class? Remember that any and all classes are a great idea when it comes to keeping you and your employees safe.
Proper safety training could save the life of one of your employees. If you need any ideas or have any questions, call us at Safety Solutions & Supply. We are proud to offer different training services, so give us a call today at 866-537-2262 for more information.
