OSHA 10-Hour for General Industry Outreach, CBIA, Tuesday, 25. February 2020

Two-Day Program:Tuesday: 8:30 am - 3 pmWednesday: 8:30 am - 3 pm
This program teaches safety awareness and helps workers recognize and reduce the risks of jobsite hazards. It covers general industry hazards not specific to those working construction-only jobs and is intended as an orientation to OSHA standards. Workers taking general industry OSHA courses usually have jobs related to health care, factory, warehouse, manufacturing, or storage.
Although not mandatory, this training is a highly visible means of demonstrating to OSHA that a participating employer is committed to sustaining productivity in a safe work environment. Attendance by safety committee members -- along with your safety manager -- can serve as a further indication of the importance your company places on sustaining a safe workplace.
