The financial benefits of taking this five-day OSHA virtual certification course can be staggering. Your work site will be safer and healthier, man-hours lost to injury and downtime will plummet and productivity will increase. Your insurance rates will reflect your commitment to safety, and you’ll be able to sleep better at night knowing that you’re doing everything you can to protect your company from costly penalties for noncompliance.
We promise that when you attend this LIVE, virtual training event, you won’t just sit there getting a dry, boring five-day lecture. We’ve packed these sessions with interactive exercises that will give you practical experience you can use immediately. Plus, you’ll get a firsthand look at many of the resources and tools you’ll need to create your own training back at work.
And, upon successful completion of this course, you’ll receive your 30-hour general industry training card from OSHA that shows your deep commitment to the safety and health of your employees. So even if you only use one strategy that saves your company from a compliance error—or an employee from a life-threatening injury—this program will more than pay for itself several times over. Don’t wait another minute!
NOTE: To protect the integrity of this virtual certificate program, participants must attend this training with cameras on.
