Communicating Hazards Effectively and Proper OSHA 300 Reporting
Event Date: June 18, 2015
Hazard Communication was OSHA’s most frequently cited standard in 2014. Fines in excess of $550,000 have been imposed on companies for accidentally exposing their employees to hazardous chemicals. Developing and implementing an effective hazard communication program can be a deterrent to receiving such fines.
Other large fines (upwards of $10,000 per violation) can be assessed for non-compliance of OSHA. The fines are on top of potential downtime, internal disruption, negative press, and lost revenue. While keeping accurate records is essential, one of the trickiest parts of complying with the OSHA Record keeping Standard is knowing what injuries and illnesses should be recorded.
Join us on June 18 to for general guidelines on how to develop and implement an effective hazard communication program and to review the proper completion of the annual OSHA log summary. Ensure that your company is compliant with these OSHA regulations.
