The Importance Of Staying OSHA Compliant

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration of The United States Department of Labor (OSHA) was formed by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. OSHA provides regulations and guidelines for safe workplaces and avoiding hazards while on the job. Many companies follow federal OSHA regulations and require their employees to go through compliant training. Utilizing OSHA guidelines in the workplace provides not only the employer with benefits, but also the employee. Several benefits to staying OSHA compliant are:

  • Preventing workplace injuries and illnesses
  • Improving compliance with laws and regulations
  • Reducing costs, particularly for workers’ compensation premiums
  • Engaging employees
  • Enhancing employees’ social responsibilities
  • Increasing productivity, resulting in enhanced business operations

NES provides many courses with a variety of formats from online, in-person, and even webinars to help your employees stay OSHA compliant.
