OSHA "10-Hour Card" Training Sessions by Spooner

The safety team at Spooner will be hosting OSHA 10hr Training sessions throughout Ohio in November and December. The training sessions will provide leadership, management, and workers with a solid understanding of occupational safety and health standards. The sessions are great for those new to safety or who want to refresh their safety training knowledge. Upon completion of the course, participants will be issued OSHA "10 Hour Cards" which are both recognized and encouraged by regulatory agencies. The cost to attend the 2 day courses is $199.

You can check training session times and dates and register online here.

Reminder: The OSHA 10hr course will also satisfy the 2hr safety requirement for companies participating in group rating and group retrospective rating in the 2014 policy year. Spooner will schedule 2hr safety training sessions for the 2014 policy year in the spring of 2015 but the OSHA 10hr course is an opportunity to satisfy the 2hr requirement sooner rather than later.

This post originally appeared on SuretyHR.com Like most things related to Human Resources, being proactive is always the best policy. Employers know that the U.S Department of Labor (DOL) can perform an audit at any time. Sometimes these audits are triggered by an employee complaint, but they can also occur in targeted low-wage industries such as agriculture, restaurants, garment manufacturing, guard services, day-care centers and hospitality to screen wage and hour violations. It is crucial for employers to understand the audit process so they can be prepared to handle the situation if it occurs. Below is a basic guide to help employers know what to expect in the event they are audited. Will I Have Advance Notice of an Audit? The DOL does not provide advance notice of an audit.
