Hazard Communication is one of those programs that every company needs to have in place, since every company uses some sort of chemical. From window cleaner  to chlorine, OSHA requires “all employers to provide information to their employees about the hazardous chemicals to which they are exposed, by means of a hazard communication program, labels and other forms of warning, safety data sheets, and information and training.” (CFR 1910.1200(b)(1)

Who Needs Bloodborne Pathogens Training

Bloodborne Pathogens, Safety Training

Perhaps you don’t work in a hospital or at the fire department, or even if you do, you may be wondering. “Do I have to be compliant in Bloodborne Pathogens?” “Do i have to complete training for Bloodborne Pathogens?”
The short answer is yes, if your employees have exposure to bloodborne pathogens, then yes. If you don’t work in a medical facility, perhaps you’re wondering why you would need bloodborne pathogen training.

Why Fall Protection is so important!

fall protection equipment

Why Fall Protection is so important! It may seem like an obvious answer, but there is still much to be said on the topic. OSHA claims that falls are the most common cause of serious work-related injury and/or death. In 2021 fall protection became the most cited safety standard violation for the 11th year in a row, followed next by respiratory protection and then ladders in 3rd and scaffolding in 4th. I think it’s significant that that ladders and scaffolding come in 3rd and 4th because usually when working with ladders and scaffolding, you will be working at heights. So, I believe there may be some crossover.
You’re probably wondering what we can do to prevent more falls from happening?
