Under the OSH Act, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace, free from recognized hazards. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards. Effective management of worker safety and health protection is a decisive factor in reducing the frequency as well as the severity of work-related injuries and illnesses. Effective safety management addresses all work-related hazards, including those potential hazards that could result from a change in worksite conditions or practices. The best Safety and Health Programs involve every level of the organization, instilling a safety culture that reduces accidents for workers and improves the bottom line for managers. When safety and health are part of the organization and a way of life, everyone wins. During this session, we will discuss different elements of a safety and health program that will satisfy the requirements under the standard, as well as what additional policies and training should be implemented to improve your current safety and health programs. 

The topics in this session that will be discussed are: Introduction to OSHA, Accident Investigation, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Emergency Action Plan (EAP), and Bloodborne Pathogens.
