According to the OSHA Act every employer has a legal obligation to furnish employment (work) and a place of employment (workplace) free from known hazards that could cause serious injury or death.

This course is designed to give you some ideas to help meet that obligation and apply effective management principles to the function of workplace safety. The ultimate goal is to help you understand these principles so that it affects your thinking, beliefs, decision and finally your actions to improve your company’s safety management system and leadership culture.

Working safe is working smart: “Safety Only” emphasizes the idea that it’s fine to produce as hard and fast as you can, as long as you can do it safely. High productivity is desired, but if a safety hazard or practice is discovered that might cause serious physical harm or death, it should be corrected immediately, even if that means shutting down production. That’s commitment to safety!
